“The beauty of a woman is not in the clothes she wears, the figure that she carries, or the way she combs her hair. The beauty of a woman is seen in her eyes, because that is the doorway to her heart, the place where love resides. True beauty in a woman is reflected in her soul. It’s the caring that she lovingly gives, the passion that she shows & the beauty of a woman only grows with passing years.”—Audrey Hepburn
Disregard defeat. Don’t let it break you. Recollect your backbone and seize what you have. Let it build your foundation and make you stronger. Its only a loss if you let it be taken away from you and settle for less. Its not going to be easy everyday, but the best accomplishments come from being pushed down and standing right back up. You learn from it, soak in what you can take out of it and earn the knowledge you didn’t have prior to the situation. And eventually it gives you the tools to be the best of the biggest self-made product … you. You learn. That’s natural. Someone’s always going to have something to say no matter what you do, how you do it or how you feel.
“The problems of the world cannot possibly be solved by skeptics or cynics whose horizons are limited by the obvious realities. We need men who can dream of things that never were.”—John Keats (via talkativolive)
“Youth is not a time of life, it is a state of mind; it is not a matter of
rosy cheeks, red lips and supple knees; it is a matter of the will,
a quality of the imagination, a vigor of the emotions;
it is the freshness of the deep springs of life.”—Samuel Ullman
“what you are in love with, what seizes your imagination, will affect everything. it will decide what gets you out of bed in the mornings, what you do with your evenings, how you spend your weekends, what you read, who you know, what breaks your heart, and what amazes you. fall in love, stay in love, and it will decide everything.”— Pedro Arrupe.
i have a strong dislike for a hype... like some shit because YOU like it, not because its the thing to like. venture out and discover some things of your OWN and form your OWN opinion, good bad or indifferent..
“Socializing is as exhausting as giving blood. People assume we loners are misanthropes just sitting thinking, ‘Oh, people are such a bunch of assholes,’ but it’s really not like that. We just have a smaller tolerance for what it takes to be with others. It means having to perform. I get so tired of communicating.”—
“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, 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 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. That is why I love love”—Neil Gaiman (via lettertoafrica)
The outside differs little from the inside, with both surfaces a dull emptiness, an unresponsiveness- a blank stare, as fresh nicotine seeps out slowly from cracked lips, and eyes stay still like a pause in the wind as a life form, or so it seems - proves to be lacking in feeling perhaps as there is still some motion in this entity, but the mind is far away
