"No great genius has ever existed without some touch of madness." -Aristotle
When you break your bone you don’t try to set it back in place yourself. You go to the hospital. Why is it that people think they can fix their brain, the most crucial part of their body, all by themselves.
My 11th grade math teacher (via sickofbeingsuicidal)
If a man walks in the woods for love of them half of each day, he is in danger of being regarded as a loafer. But if he spends his days as a speculator, shearing off those woods and making the earth bald before her time, he is deemed an industrious and enterprising citizen.
Henry David Thoreau (via occult101)
Finding your passion isn’t just about careers and money. It’s about finding your authentic self. The one you’ve buried beneath other people’s needs.
Kristin Hannah, Distant Shores (via ohteenscanrelate)
Here’s honesty. When you’re 25 and younger they say inexperienced to shut you up. When your 25 and older they say past your prime to shut you up. The whole point is for you to feel either too young or too old or too inexperienced or too weary from experience. Old dogs do learn new tricks. Young rattlesnakes do have better venom. The unskilled lack confidence. The skilled get lazy. Everyone has a hiccup. You want to be something, carve out a space big enough to sit in and get to it.
