A tumblr dedicated to quotes I enjoy, songs I like, and any pictures I find aesthetically pleasing. Many of the quotes here are originally posted, but nothing is of original content unless stated otherwise.

You can browse through the tags which can be found on the navigation bar along with other links.

You can also always message me, but for some reason I don't get a notification that shows I have a message/submission. So I apologize in advance for delayed responses.

❝ Maybe who we are isn’t so much about what we do, but rather what we’re capable of when we least expect it. ❞

- Jodi Picoult, My Sister’s Keeper

❝ For what it’s worth: it’s never too late or, in my case, too early to be whoever you want to be. There’s no time limit, stop whenever you want. You can change or stay the same, there are no rules to this thing. We can make the best or the worst of it. I hope you make the best of it. And I hope you see things that startle you. I hope you feel things you never felt before. I hope you meet people with a different point of view. I hope you live a life you’re proud of. If you find that you’re not, I hope you have the courage to start all over again. ❞

- F. Scott Fitzgerald, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button

❝ The truth is, I pretend to be a cynic, but I am really a dreamer who is terrified of wanting something she may never get. ❞

- Joanna Hoffman

❝ We both have war inside us. Sometimes it keeps us alive. Sometimes it threatens to destroy us. ❞

- Veronica Roth, Insurgent

❝ Before you can change the world you must realize that you, yourself, are part of it. You can’t stand outside looking in. ❞

- The Dreamers (2003)

❝ And I’d choose you; in a hundred lifetimes, in a hundred worlds, in any version of reality, I’d find you and I’d choose you. ❞

- Kiersten White, The Chaos of Stars

❝ It has been said, ‘time heals all wounds.’ I do not agree. The wounds remain. In time, the mind, protecting its sanity, covers them with scar tissue and the pain lessens. But it is never gone. ❞

- Rose Kennedy

❝ It’s like the people who believe they’ll be happy if they go and live somewhere else, but who learn it doesn’t work that way. Wherever you go, you take yourself with you. ❞

- Neil Gaiman, The Graveyard Book

❝ A flower does not think of competing with the flower next to it. It just blooms. ❞

- from Zen Shin Talks

❝ Open your heart. Someone will come. Someone will come for you. But first you must open your heart. ❞

- Kate DiCamillo, The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane

❝ I’ve stopped being sorry for all my soft. I won’t apologise because I miss you, or because I said it, or because I text you first, or again. I think everyone spends too much time trying to close themselves off. I don’t want to be cool or indifferent, I want to be honest. If I love you at 5AM, I’d damn well rather that you know I felt it. If I love you two hours later, I’ll tell you then too. Listen, I won’t wait double the time it takes for you to text me back because I don’t want to. I don’t care enough to be patient with you. I’m happy, you made me feel that way, don’t you want to know? So that’s how it’s going to be. I’m going to leave myself as open as a church door. And I’m going to wake you up before the crack of dawn to tell you that I’m fucking joyful, no pretending, not from me, not ever. Would you like some coffee, would you please kiss me? Here, these are my hands, this is my mouth, it is all yours. ❞

- Azra.T, Don’t Wait Three Days to Text First

❝ Inherited wealth may be something easily squandered, but inherited poverty is a legacy almost impossible to lose. ❞
