“Don’t stop until you’re satisfied. You want an explanation? Ask. You want to be successful? Work. Don’t settle for results you don’t want. Don’t stop until you’re satisfied.”—(the best advice a teacher has ever given me)
“People get drunk, they hook up with the wrong person and pretend to be okay. People act tough and get mad. People will do anything to distract their heart. They will do anything to distract it from missing someone.”—November Depth (via drapetomania) (via -revive)
“Oh shut up. Every time it rains, it stops raining. Every time you hurt, you heal. After darkness, there is always light and you get reminded of this every morning but still you choose to believe that the night will last forever. Nothing lasts forever. Not the good or the bad. So you might as well smile while you’re here.”—I Wrote This For You (via unoceanic)
What's a good way to get over someone you're in love with?
Lose any contact. Don’t talk, don’t send messages, avoid seeing them. Delete everything. Messages, email, facebook, number. Everything. After you’ve done that, you’ll be hurt like hell. Like a piece of you has been ripped out. But that’s normal. Remember that you’re not the first or the last that feels this kind of pain. Cry your heart out, cry as much as you can, because even if you don’t believe it, this will help you. I’m not gonna lie to you. This won’t be easy. But if you really want to move on, you can. That doesn’t mean you’ll truly forget that person. There will always be days or nights when you’re gonna remember them. When you cry and cry and wonder why that happened the way it did. But after a while, you’ll feel different. You’ll smile again, you’ll want a relationship again. Someone that cares, someone that listen, someone that’s there for you, not like that person was. Because even if you loved that person with all your heart, it failed you, it broke you, and having a broken heart is one of the hardest things in this world.
“Stop waiting for friday, for summer, for a boy to fall in love with you. Happiness is achieved when you stop waiting for it and make something of the moment you’re in right now.”—e-stablish (via fusels)
“It’s that thing when you’re with someone, and you love them and they know it, and they love you and you know it… but it’s a party… and you’re both talking to other people, and you’re laughing and shining… and you look across the room and catch each other’s eyes… but - but not because you’re possessive, or it’s precisely sexual… but because… that is your person in this life. And it’s funny and sad, but only because this life will end, and it’s this secret world that exists right there in public, unnoticed, that no one else knows about. It’s sort of like how they say that other dimensions exist all around us, but we don’t have the ability to perceive them. That’s - That’s what I want out of a relationship. Or just life, I guess.”—Frances, Ha (via theimperfectideal)
“One of my philosophy professors lectured wildly about love once, yelling: “When you’re in love with someone, that person is the lighthouse of your universe.” (I scrawled it inside Science and Poetry in pencil—lighthouse of your universe—as if I would ever forget that phrase.) He was a delightful caricature of his position. I could swear he literally tore his hair out while howling at us. He went on, “Nothing means as much without that person.” One of the men in the class repeated, incredulous, half-laughing, “So you’re saying you can’t enjoy, like, a vacation, without someone if you’re really in love with them?” “Of course not.” the professor replied. “Not completely. You recognize beauty, but beauty means less if they don’t witness it with you. Beauty is less. You see something sublime and your first thought is that they should be there with you. It’s not as good without them. They illuminate. They make everything more.”—Unknown (via perfect)
