" Once she stopped rushing through life, she was amazed how much more life she had time for."

Amy Rubin Flett


" What does seventy million years mean to beings who live one-millionth as long? We are like butterflies who flutter for a day and think it is forever."
Carl Sagan, Cosmos pg. 27 (via wethinkwedream)

" You will have bad times, but they will always wake you up to the stuff you weren’t paying attention to."
Robin Williams, Good Will Hunting (1997)

" You attract the right things when you have a sense of who you are."
Amy Poehler (via suspend)

" I am not a courageous person by nature. I have simply discovered that, at certain key moments in this life, you must find courage in yourself, in order to move forward and live. It is like a muscle and it must be exercised, first a little, and then more and more. All the really exciting things possible during the course of a lifetime require a little more courage than we currently have. A deep breath and a leap."
John Patrick Shanley, 13 by Shanley (via observando)

" People empty me. I have to get away to refill."
Charles Bukowski  (via telepathicmagic)

" We age not by years, but by stories."

" I don’t owe people anything, and I don’t have to talk to them any more than I feel I need to."

"

The night was as black as the inside of a cat. It was the kind of night, you could believe, on which gods moved men as though they were pawns on the chessboard of fate. In the middle of this elemental storm a fire gleamed among the dripping furze bushes like the madness in a weasel’s eye. It illuminated three hunched figures. As the cauldron bubbled an eldritch voice shrieked: ‘When shall we three meet again?’

There was a pause.

Finally another voice said, in far more ordinary tones: ‘Well, I can do next Tuesday.’

"
Terry Pratchett, Wyrd Sisters (via discworldquotes)

" Being born a woman is an awful tragedy. Yes, my consuming desire to mingle with road crews, sailors and soldiers, bar room regulars—to be a part of a scene, anonymous, listening, recording—all is spoiled by the fact that I am a girl, a female always in danger of assault and battery. My consuming interest in men and their lives is often misconstrued as a desire to seduce them, or as an invitation to intimacy. Yet, God, I want to talk to everybody I can as deeply as I can. I want to be able to sleep in an open field, to travel west, to walk freely at night."
Sylvia Plath (via hadleybadly)

" Jobs fill your pocket. Adventures fill your soul."
Jaime Lyn Beatty (via franki-e)

" Religion is based, I think, primarily and mainly upon fear. It is partly the terror of the unknown and partly, as I have said, the wish to feel that you have a kind of elder brother who will stand by you in all your troubles and disputes. A good world needs knowledge, kindliness, and courage; it does not need a regretful hankering after the past or a fettering of the free intelligence by the words uttered long ago by ignorant men."
Bertrand Russell, Why I am not a Christian (via wild-earth)

"

We talked through the long hours of the night. I spoke subtle circles around the way I felt, not wanting to be overbold. I thought she might be doing the same, but I could never be sure. It was like we were doing one of those elaborate Modegan court dances, where the partners stand scant inches apart, but - if they are skilled - never touch.

Such was our conversation. But not only were we lacking touch to guide us, it was as if we were also strangely deaf. So we danced very carefully, unsure what music the other was listening to, unsure, perhaps, if the other was dancing at all.

"
The Name of the Wind (Patrick Rothfuss)
