fave quote(s)
We are a diverse community by virtue of our individuality. Never underestimate a small act of kindness, live day-to-day.

The epitome of autonomy. Many unfathomable emotions, one infallible imagination. ♡I Sing The Body Electric.♡ Even when people are watching me, I am left to my own devices. I'm a college student/musician. This is a miscellany/personal blog.
"I do think that men can forget a lost love quickly. I know that women would find it much harder."
— Jane Austen, Persuasion (via observando)
"Have you ever been in love? Horrible isn’t it? It makes you so vulnerable. It opens your chest and it opens up your heart and it means that someone can get inside you and mess you up. You build up all these defenses, you build up a whole suit of armor, so that nothing can hurt you, then one stupid person, no different from any other stupid person, wanders into your stupid life…You give them a piece of you. They didn’t ask for it. They did something dumb one day, like kiss you or smile at you, and then your life isn’t your own anymore. Love takes hostages. It gets inside you. It eats you out and leaves you crying in the darkness, so simple a phrase like ‘maybe we should be just friends’ turns into a glass splinter working its way into your heart. It hurts. Not just in the imagination. Not just in the mind. It’s a soul-hurt, a real gets-inside-you-and-rips-you-apart pain. I hate love."
— Neil Gaiman (via observando)
watched Divergent at the cinema with my lil sis yesterday and I realized something.

Divergents can lie to others, but it’s difficult for them to lie to themselves.

"Although forgiveness is very hard, it is necessary. Holding onto anger and old hurts hardens your heart and hurts only you. Ask for help in letting go of the anger. Ask to see the situation through the eyes of compassion. Allow yourself to feel the lightness of forgiveness."
"There are no bad people, only people with bad ideas. Have compassion towards such people, and help them sober up from the influence of bad ideas."
"When you focus on problems, you will have more problems. When you focus on possibilities, you will have more opportunities."
"There are times when a change of direction is for your highest good. It takes courage to change direction. Choose the path your heart agrees with and walk with your head high and your eyes open. Don’t be afraid."
"You can’t rid the world of sorrow, but you can choose to live in joy. Sorrow is with us not because we are bad at stopping it, but simply because it’s part of being human. What matters is not whether good or bad things happen - both will, but your relationship to them. Just think back over the last 24 hours, - what had you taken hard that you could have taken lightly?"
"Your pains are God’s way to rouse you from slumber. Pain is your wake-up call to awaken, to look deeper into yourself, to adjust the course of your life. God tries to be as gentle as possible, and only if you ignore the call does the pain get stronger."
