"We look up at the same stars, and see such different things.”
— George R. R. Martin (via seabois)
"I’m ashamed of myself because I know I should be better and I have no idea how to get there.”

"You have to work on getting higher. It’s like the big condors that fly in the thermals. The Universe is going to come along and bang you around a little bit and bring you down once in a while, so you just look around for good vibes and rise in them. When you blunder out of the good vibes into the bad vibes, try to be graceful about it until you find a place where you can rise a little. But if you keep wanting to get higher and you keep wanting to get higher… There’s a thing about that, invented by Suzuki-roshi, which is the theory of minimum desire. And he says you should desire desirelessness until the desire for desirelessness becomes a desire, and then you better level off about there. Desiring altitude is what makes the come-downs on the other side seem so heavy. Say, “I do not seek after enlightenment; neither do I linger in a place where no enlightenment exists.”
— Stephen Gaskin, Hey Beatnik! This is the Farm Book (1974)
"It’s kinda sad isn’t it?
That someone could hurt you so much that you have to write about it.”
— July 7th (via demorxlise)
"You don’t actually get over things… you incorporate them. They become part of everything you are. I don’t mean that you walk about crying all the time. But you change.”
Mark Matousek, When You’re Falling, Dive: Lessons in the Art of Living  (via mrsfscottfitzgerald)
