'cause if you're like someone else,
what do they need you for?'
don't be shy... just ask!
“ Sometimes we love with nothing more than hope. Sometimes we cry with everything except tears. ”

“ Everything is temporary. ”
“ It is a distinct craving
for air not yet smelled
and hills not yet climbed.
You are small,
you are nothing in
the scheme of it all.
That is comforting to me,
that you are merely a stone
pushed along in this river. ”
“ If you were to press your heart close up against somebody else’s heart eventually your hearts will start beating at the same time. And two little babies in an incubator, their hearts will beat at the same time. Love that. So if you have somebody in your life that is prone to anxiety, like myself, and if you happen to be a calm person, you could come up and hug me heart to heart and my heart hopefully would slow to yours. And I just love that idea. Or maybe yours would speed up to mine. But either way, we’ll be there together. ”
“ I began to realize how important it was to be an enthusiast in life. If you are interested in something, no matter what it is, go at it full speed ahead. Embrace it with both arms, hug it, love it and above all become passionate about it. Lukewarm is no good. ”
“ Love who you love while you have them. That’s all you can do. Let them go when you must. If you know how to love, you’ll never run out. ”
Ann Brashares, My Name Is Memory (via observando)
You are good at something, stop lying to yourself. You’re good at breaking down comic book plots, cooking ramen perfectly, making your friends happy, knowing the time without looking at a clock, getting the perfect ending at RPG’s, or figuring out the twist ending to movies. Don’t let society tell you your talents are meaningless because they don’t serve an economical purpose. Your talents reflect your interests and passions, and what’s important to you is important.
“ When you’re traveling, you are what you are, right there and then. People don’t have your past to hold against you. No yesterdays on the road. ”
