With freedom, books, flowers, and the moon, who could not be happy?

Oscar Wilde (via feellng)

When you consider things like the stars, our affairs don’t seem to matter very much, do they?

Virginia Woolf (via observando)

So, what if, instead of thinking about solving your whole life, you just think about adding additional good things. One at a time. Just let your pile of good things grow.

Rainbow Rowell, from ‘Attachments
(via istruggleandemerge)

You are angry at him,
not because he left
but because he did not take you with him.
You are angry at him,
not because he broke your heart
but because you did not see it coming.
You are angry with him,
not because he used you
but because he made a fool out of you.

You are angry at him
because you cannot forget him
no matter how hard you try.
You are angry at him
for coming back when
you have been trying so hard to leave.
You are angry at him
for being the broken down house
that feels like home.

You are angry at him,
not just because
he always manages to pick the door
no matter how many times you’ve changed the lock,
but because you are more angry with yourself
for being too weak
to shut him out.

M.D.L, You Are Angry

(via mingdliu)

‎Hold yourself responsible for a higher standard than anybody else expects of you. Never excuse yourself. Never pity yourself. Be a hard master to yourself-and be lenient to everybody else.

Henry Ward Beecher (via observando)
