People are prettiest when they talk about something they really love with passion in their eyes.
In my eyes I see my past;
In your eyes I see my future.
How would you represent your favorite quote from Doctor Who?
"Yes, I shall come back. Until then, there must be no regrets, no tears, no anxieties. Just go forward in all your beliefs, and prove to me that I am not mistaken in mine.”
~The First Doctor played by William Hartnell, Doctor Who, 1966
I love this quote because it relates to anyone you meet in life, like teachers, friends, or even family members. When you have to leave someone who is so dear to you, you should stay strong. Yes, it hurts and I admit that I am not one for goodbyes at all. In fact, I was a wreck when one of my friends moved back to Japan. But we have to remember that we will meet again someday, so we shouldn’t worry or remain broken up about it.
Believe in others.
But most importantly, believe in yourself.
Times are bad. Children no longer obey their parents and everyone is writing a book.
Cicero, circa 43 BC (via amandaonwriting)
“Recency illusion is the belief or impression that something is of recent origin when it is in fact long-established.”
i love pulling out ancient quotes like this whenever someone starts complaining about This Generation and how we’re ruining the world
Everyone is writing a book
“I’ve done the living room in a different color,” says the other, who is not short. “It was one color, it is now different. I hope that I will feel differently as a result.”
“Hmm,” says the first. He never knows what to say to things like that. He wishes he did. He offers the man who is not short some fries instead, to indicate what he feels about their friendship, but cannot say.
The man who is not short eats a couple. He knows what the man who is not tall means by offering the fries, because they have worked together a long time. And also because the radio explained it to him, just then.
Outside, the blindfolded man sits in the car, the desert heat trapped within by the glass.
Don’t worry about it.

Episode 45 - A Story About Them
Time is tricky. You have whole months, even years, when nothing changes a speck, when you don’t go anywhere or do anything or think one new thought. And then you can get hit with a day, or an hour, or a half a second when so much happens it’s almost like you got born all over again into some brand-new person you for damn sure never expected to meet.

But you can’t hide.
From Vice’s mini documentary on the Suicide Forest in Japan x
Let someone love you just the way you are – as flawed as you might be, as unattractive as you sometimes feel, and as unaccomplished as you think you are. To believe that you must hide all the parts of you that are broken, out of fear that someone else is incapable of loving what is less than perfect, is to believe that sunlight is incapable of entering a broken window and illuminating a dark room.
do you ever get weirded out by the fact that everyone around you is constantly within their own mind and thinking a million secret thoughts and battling internal struggles just like you and that you’re not the only one who thinks these things and that the people around you aren’t just faces meant to fill up your life but they’re actually really deep people who have a lot more to them than you ever actually even think about
I either eat too much or starve myself. Sleep for 14 hours or have insomniac nights. Fall in love very hard or hate passionately. I don’t know what grey is. I never did.
I go through phases. Somedays I feel like the person I’m supposed to be, and then somedays, I turn into no one at all. There is both me and my silhouette. I hope that on the days you find me and all I am are darkened lines, you still are willing to be near me.
