“Now you’re here and everything we touch explodes, bursts into bloom or burns to ash. History atomizes and negates itself with our every shared breath. I need you like life needs life. I want you bad like a natural disaster. You are all I see.”—Henry Rollins
“Everybody has a secret world inside of them. All of the people of the world, I mean everybody. No matter how dull and boring they are on the outside, inside them they’ve all got unimaginable, magnificent, wonderful, stupid, amazing worlds. Not just one world. Hundreds of them. Thousands maybe.”—Neil Gaiman
“There comes a time when we realize that our parents cannot save themselves or save us, that everyone who wades through time eventually gets dragged out to sea by the undertow - that, in short, we are all going.”—Looking for Alaska (via arcanethoughts)
“In public school, I’d known plenty of people who made it a habit to hate this kind of person or that kind - the geeks hated the preps, etc. - and it always seemed like a big waste of time to me.”—Looking for Alaska (via arcanethoughts)
I am constantly stuck in this place, in between my future and my past and I'm not sure which one I want more. Most of the time, part of me just wants to throw myself into the future and the other part wants me to hurl myself into my past.
There is no person in the world who is made to handle every punch that is thrown at them. We aren’t made that way. In fact, we are made to get mad, upset, be hurt, stumble, and fall. But that’s what makes us stronger in the end, by learning from what hurts us most.
“I was half in love with her by the time we sat down. That’s the thing about girls. Every time they do something pretty, even if they’re not much to look at, or even if they’re sort of stupid, you fall half in love with them, and then you never know where the hell you are.”—J.D. Salinger, The Catcher in the Rye (1945) (via writingsarah) (via quote-book) (via tearsandlaughter)
“I can’t hide who I am. I can’t say things I don’t mean, say that I like things I hate, or hate things I like. And more than anything, I can’t lie to myself. And in a moment of disappoint I can’t make excuses to make up for my behaviour…”—Key (via morningbreaks)
