The truth is, once you learn how to die, you learn how to live.
Tuesdays with Morrie, Mitch Albom (via fuckyeahliteraryquotes)
The most important thing in life is to stop saying ‘I wish’ and start saying ‘I will.’ Consider nothing impossible, then treat possiblities as probabilities.
David Copperfield, Charles Dickens (via fuckyeahliteraryquotes)
When I look at the lives of the poets, I understand what’s wrong with me. They were willing to make the sacrifices that I’m not willing to make. They were so tortured, so messed up. I’m only a little messed up.
Nicholson Baker, The Anthologist (via newspaperblackout)

Why, what’s the matter,
That you have such a February face,
So full of frost, of storm and cloudiness?
Much Ado About Nothing by William Shakespeare (via melancholynotes)

Sometimes fate is like a small sandstorm that keep changing directions. You change direction but the sandstorm chases you. You turn again, but the storm adjusts. Why? Because this storm is not something that blew in from far away, something that has not to do with you. This storm is you. Something inside of you.
Kafka on the Shore by Haruki Murakami (via oursilences)

What I thought was an end turned out to be a middle.
What I thought was a brick wall turned out to be a tunnel.
What I thought was an injustice
turned out to be a color of the sky.
A Color of the Sky (excerpt) by Tony Hoagland (via melancholynotes)
