You are the known way leading always to the unknown,
and you are the known place to which the unknown is always
leading me back.
A beautiful day begins with a beautiful mindset. When you wake up, take a second to think about what a privilege it is to simply be alive and healthy. The moment you start acting like life is a blessing, I assure you it will start to feel like one.
Emil Sedlák / Pavúky III. 1988
If you say these words to me while holding me like this, I will marry you.
I want love to be simple. I want to trust without thinking. I want to be generous with my affection and patience and love unconditionally. It is easier to love a person with their flaws than to weed through them. I want to love the whole person, not parts; and this is how I want to be loved.
Jewel Kilcher (via h-o-r-n-g-r-y)
A wonderful fact to reflect upon, that every human creature is constituted to be that profound secret and mystery to every other.
Charles Dickens, A Tale of Two Cities (via beautifullitteraryquotes)
Each man had only one genuine vocation - to find the way to himself. (…) His task was to discover his own destiny - not an arbitrary one - and live it out wholly and resolutely within himself. Everything else was would-be existence, an attempt at evasion, a flight back to the ideals of the masses, conformity and fear of one’s own inwardness.
Hermann Hesse (via aplethoraofquotations)
I hope this won’t sound too confusing, but I do hereby and forever abandon abandoning all hope. Honestly, I give up on giving up.
Chuck Palahniuk, Damned (via hope-aholic)
I understand as I did back then that none of us really wants to be known, to be exposed, to be found out. We want to keep part of ourselves—the sources of our deepest vulnerabilities—hidden, both to ourselves and to others. And yet sometimes, despite our best efforts, our hearts peek out, and we want to sneak off and sit with our heads in our hands and softly let the words ‘oh boy’ exhale out of our mouths.
