The only way to deal with an unfree world is to become so absolutely free that your very existence is an act of rebellion.
—Albert Camus (via raveenlemon)
You’ve got to follow your passion. You’ve got to figure out what it is you love, who you really are, and have the courage to do that. I believe that the only courage anybody ever needs is the courage to follow their own dreams.
I have found the paradox, that if you love until it hurts, there can be no more hurt, only more love.
— Mother Teresa
A kiss is a lovely trick designed by nature to stop speech when words become superfluous.
—Ingrid Bergman (via catthatgotyourtongue)
You know my name, not my story. You’ve heard what I’ve done, not what I’ve been through.
So, I guess we are who we are for a lot of reasons. And maybe we’ll never know most of them. But even if we don’t have the power to choose where we come from, we can still choose where we go from there. We can still do things. And we can try to feel okay about them.
And it hurts to want everything and nothing at the same time.
Goodbye to You
Build me a home
inside your open arms
The only place I ever will belong.
I Am Still Running
—Sitting, Waiting, Wishing
"Now I was sitting waiting wishing
That you believed in superstitions
Then maybe you’d see the signs
But Lord knows that this world is cruel
And I ain’t the Lord, no I’m just a fool
Learning loving somebody don’t make them love you”
