"Be like the flower that gives its fragrance to even the hand that crushes it.”
- Imam Ali (a)The symbolism though… This is so powerful…
Sometimes, you read a book and it fills you with this weird evangelical zeal, and you become convinced that the shattered world will never be put back together unless and until all living humans read the book.
John Green, The Fault in Our Stars (via feellng)
Being alone is like being in total darkness.
And, I’d rather be there than in the warm embrace of the light, because eventually you start to see again in that total darkness.
But, you don’t see what only light can show you, you get to see what darkness can show you.
Something beyond reality. Something deeper.

You are so good. So good, you’re always feeling so much. And sometimes it feels like you’re gonna bust wide open from all the feeling, don’t it? People like you are the best in the world, but you sure do suffer for it.
Silas House, This is My Heart for You (via cxzmt)
You’re the only person I’ve ever met who can stand a bookstore as long as I can.
Junot Díaz (via flannel)
Do not be so sweet
That people will eat you up.
Nor so bitter that
They will spit you out.
