Style is freedom of expression in what one wears. You just have to wear what appeals to you. Fashion is a big mix of amazing opinions, you take and you leave what you like and what you don’t like. It’s there to enjoy.

A poem begins with a lump in the throat; a homesickness or a love sickness. It is a reaching-out toward expression; an effort to find fulfillment. A complete poem is one where an emotion has found its thought and the thought has found words.

Robert Frost (via observando) —

The moment I met you, I knew I was in for something extraordinary.

Laurence Anyways (2012) dir. by Xavier Dolan (via violentwavesofemotion) —

Life moves on, whether we act as cowards or heroes. Life has no other discipline to impose, if we would but realize it, than to accept life unquestioningly. Everything we shut our eyes to, everything we run away from, everything we deny, denigrate or despise, serves to defeat us in the end. What seems nasty, painful, evil, can become a source of beauty, joy, and strength, if faced with an open mind. Every moment is a golden one for him who has the vision to recognise it as such.

Henry Miller (via kari-shma) —

Remember where you came from, where you’re going, and why you created this mess you got yourself into in the first place.

Ayn Rand is one of those things that a lot of us, when we were 17 or 18 and feeling misunderstood, we’d pick up. Then, as we get older, we realize that a world in which we’re only thinking about ourselves and not thinking about anybody else, in which we’re considering the entire project of developing ourselves as more important than our relationships to other people and making sure that everybody else has opportunity – that that’s a pretty narrow vision.

You have no idea

how difficult it is

to speak the same words

that I’ve already told you

a million times

in my head.
