"I quote others only to better express myself" -Michel de MontaIgne

Language is a cracked kettle on which we bang out tunes to make the bears dance, when what we long for is to move the stars to pity.
Sometimes, someone says something really small and it just fits right into this empty place in your heart.
Aren’t there enough words
flowing in your veins
to keep you going.
— Margaret Atwood, from “The Shadow Voice” (via the-final-sentence)

Words are, of course, the most powerful drug used by mankind

 Rudyard Kipling

Every form of addiction is bad, no matter whether the narcotic be alcohol, morphine or idealism.
— C.G. Jung (via wordsnquotes)
Other people are not medicine.
Stop looking at the past and all the things you can’t change. They’re done and over with. Now is the time for you to look to the future, grasp it by the hand, and decide where you want to go.
— Lacey Weatherford, Chasing Nikki (via wordsnquotes)
Sometimes, home has a heartbeat.
Beau Taplin || home.  (via afadthatlastsforever)
Please do not lose it,
this flame I have lit inside.
Breathe and burn with it.
