"For some reason, you will no longer be the person you believed you once were. You’ll detect slow and subtle shifts going on all around you, more importantly shifts in you. Worse, you’ll realize it’s always been shifting, like a shimmer of sorts, a vast shimmer, only dark like a room. But you won’t understand why or how.”
— Mark Z. Danielewski, House of Leaves (via teenager90s)
"

You work so hard, just to end up at home crying yourself to sleep; remember you’re trying, you are moving mountains that have plagued you since you were young, and you’re trying so hard.

Keep fighting, fight until you have won. Fight until you have found your way home, until the sun comes back and your heart learns to love the mornings again.

— T.B. LaBerge // Go Now (via tblaberge)
"I firmly believe in small gestures: pay for their coffee, hold the door for strangers, over tip, smile or try to be kind even when you don’t feel like it, pay compliments, chase the kid’s runaway ball down the sidewalk and throw it back to him, try to be larger than you are— particularly when it’s difficult. People do notice, people appreciate. I appreciate it when it’s done to me. Small gestures can be an effort, or actually go against our grain (I’m not a big one for paying compliments), but the irony is that almost every time you make them, you feel better about yourself. For a moment life suddenly feels lighter, a bit more Gene Kelly dancing in the rain.”
Jonathan Carroll (via hoechyeah)
"Just because things hadn’t gone the way I’d planned didn’t necessarily mean they’d gone wrong.”
— Ann Patchett (via herkindoftea)
"You thought you had it figured out, and maybe you did, maybe you were happy and feeling alive. Now it’s all gone, and you are left wondering “Why did I go through that?” and it begins to hurt, like a weight on your chest. Just know, that’s how life is sometimes; you have sweet and wonderful moments, moments full of endless possibilities and joy. But then you have moments that are deeply wounding, and you have to teach yourself to keep going. That sometimes you fall, but you will always have the choice to get back up, and love what you have; even if it’s only a heartbeat.”
— T.B. LaBerge // Go Now (via tblaberge)
"There are certain emotions in your body that not even your best friend can sympathize with, but you will find the right film or the right book, and it will understand you.”
— Björk (via quotethat)
"I feel like I’ve swallowed a cloudy sky.”
Haruki Murakami, Sputnik Sweetheart  (via herkindoftea)

Emotions are something I wish I didn’t have.

They’re messy and complicated.

I am fickle and broken, and they don’t help.

"Wake me like coffee,
soothe me like a cup of tea,
you are all my warmth.”
Daily Haiku on Love by Tyler Knott Gregson  (via herkindoftea)
"If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking. Don’t settle. As with all matters of the heart, you’ll know when you find it. And, like any great relationship, it just gets better and better as the years roll on.”
Steve Jobs (via plaintshirt)
"I’m not used to being loved. I wouldn’t know what to do.”
F. Scott Fitzgerald, ”More Than Just A House (via 5weetsorrow)
"I like to think that we’ll find each other in a place that is unfamiliar, but we’ll be okay, because you and I will find memories within our smiles; a life time to be had in the depths of our dancing eyes.”
