“I don’t want people to matter to me too much. Sometimes it hurts too much to think about them. Ones you love who don’t love you, ones who are dead or hate you, ones who you think about but never get to be with. I like people but when I get too close, it fucks me up and I can’t get things done.”—Henry Rollins (via lifeisashorttrip-)
“And the work of righteousness shall be peace; and the effect of righteousness, quietness and assurance forever. And my people shall dwell in a peacable habitation, and in sure dwellings, and in quiet resting places.”—Isaiah 32: 17-18 (via godsradicaldaughter)
“There is a reason I said I’d be happy alone. It wasnt because I thought I would be happy alone. It was because I thought if I loved someone and then it fell apart, I might not make it. It’s easier to be alone. Because what if you learn that you need love? And then you don’t have it. What if you like it? And lean on it? What if you shape your life around it? And then it falls apart? Can you even survive that kind of pain? Losing love is like organ damage. It’s like dying. The only difference is, death ends. This? It could go on forever.”—Meredith Grey - Grey’s Anatomy (via quote-book)
“Light thinks it travels faster than anything, but it is wrong. No matter how fast light travels, it finds the darkness has always gotten there first, and is waiting for it.”—Sir Terence David John “Terry” Pratchett (via mynameismystery)
I don’t know how much longer I can justify the reasons for me feeling like you don’t listen. I don’t want to progress, and find myself still feeling like you don’t listen, and me still making excuses for you.
“Night is purer than day; it is better for thinking and loving and dreaming. At night everything is more intense, more true. The echo of words that have been spoken during the day takes on a new and deeper meaning.”—Elie Wiesel, Dawn (via gyri)
“You must have some vision for your life. Even if you don’t know the plan, you have to have a direction in which you choose to go. You want to be in the driver’s seat of your own life because if you are not, life will drive you.”—Oprah Winfrey (via kari-shma)
