Don’t try to behave as though you were essentially sane and naturally good. We’re all demented sinners in the same cosmic boat - and the boat is perpetually sinking.

Aldous Huxley (via wordsnquotes)

True dignity is his whose tranquil mind
Virtue has raised above the things below;
Who, every hope and fear to heaven resign’d
Shrinks not, though fortune aims her deadliest blow.

James Beattie (via itsquoted)
