“Today I will do my best. If I have a good day, I will be proud of myself. If I have a bad day, I will not dwell on it, I will forgive myself, I will put it behind me and I will continue to move forward in my recovery.”

“Other people are not medicine.”

It took me 9 years to figure that out (via bridgesx)
“Nobody will stop you from creating. Do it tonight. Do it tomorrow. That is the way to make your soul grow - whether there is a market for it or not! The kick of creation is the act of creating, not anything that happens afterward. I would tell all of you watching this screen: Before you go to bed, write a four line poem. Make it as good as you can. Don’t show it to anybody. Put it where nobody will find it. And you will discover that you have your reward.”

Kurt Vonnegut

A faint clap of thunder
雷のかすかな拍手

Clouded skies
曇った空

Perhaps rain will come
おそらく雨が来る

If so, will you stay here with me?
もしそうなら、あなたは私と一緒にここに滞在します?

“You either like me or you don’t. It took me twenty-something years to learn how to love myself, I don’t have that kinda time to convince somebody else.”

ダイヤモンド / 寺山修司

I wrote down the word tree (木)
but it looked so pitiful all alone
so I added another tree (木)
and the trees became a forest (林)
When I look at the word lonely (淋)
I know why the trees are crying (涙)
It’s just because when love begins
loneliness comes in

 木という字を一つ書きました
一本じゃかわいそうだから と思って
もう一本ならべると
林という字になりました
淋しいという字を じっと見ていると
二本の木が なぜ涙ぐんでいるのか よくわかる
ほんとに愛しはじめたときにだけ
淋しさが訪れるのです 

“Sometimes I find myself sitting in one spot for hours, staring at nothing, thinking of nothing, feeling nothing, and, most disturbingly, caring about nothing.”

Mahbod Seraji, Rooftops of Tehran  (via odaro)
“I think about dying but I don’t want to die, not even close. In fact my problem is the complete opposite. I want to live, I want to escape. I feel trapped and bored and claustrophobic, theres so much to see and so much to do but I somehow still find myself doing nothing at all. I’m wasting every second, even now i’m writing this when I should be out there, I should be living. I’m still here in this metaphorical bubble of existence and I can’t quite figure out what the hell i’m doing or how to get out.”

(via oppajohns)
“Reading good books is like engaging in conversation with the most cultivated minds of past centuries who had composed them, or rather, taking part in a well-conducted dialogue in which such minds reveal to us only the best of their thoughts.”

René Descartes, A Discourse on the Method (via wordsnquotes)
“The sign of a beautiful person is that they always see beauty in others.”

Omar Suleiman (via cinness)
“You tilt your head back. You breathe. When your heart is broken, you plant seeds in the cracks and you pray for rain.”
