Songs that give you the feeling you’re about to receive a divine revelation, as if you’re about to uncover a mystery. This is why I listen to music, that moment when different worlds collide and you’re about to uncover the secret.—Thomas Mars (via aestheticintrovert)
Gossip needn’t be false to be evil. There’s a lot of truth that shouldn’t be passed around.—Frank A. Clark (via creatingaquietmind)
Light thinks it travels faster than anything, but it is wrong. No matter how fast light travels, it finds the darkness has always gotten there first, and is waiting for it.—Terry Pratchett (via tvseriescriminalminds)
"Art and physics are much closer than you would think."
"Art is based on very clear, mathematical principles like proportion and harmony. At the same time, physicists need to be inventive, to have ideas, to have some fantasy."
Maybe I don’t like people as much as the rest of the world seems to… But occasionally, people will pleasantly surprise me and I’ll fall in love with them, so go figure.—(via jakegarland)
I don’t know where you are these days, what’s broken down and what’s beautiful in your life this season. I don’t know if this is a season of sweetness or one of sadness. But I’m learning that neither last forever. There will, I’m sure, be something that invades this current loveliness. That’s how life is. It won’t be sweet forever. But it won’t be bitter forever either. If everywhere you look these days, it’s wintery, desolate, lonely, practice believing in springtime. It always, always comes, even though on days like today it’s nearly impossible to imagine, ground frozen, trees bare and spiky. New life will spring from this same ground. This season will end, and something entirely new will follow it.—Shauna Niequist, Bittersweet (via emotional-algebra)
Not everything is supposed to become something beautiful and long-lasting. Sometimes people come into your life to show you what is right and what is wrong, to show you who you can be, to teach you to love yourself, to make you feel better for a little while, or to just be someone to walk with at night and spill your life to. Not everyone is going to stay forever, and we still have to keep on going and thank them for what they’ve given us.—Emery Allen (via aestheticintrovert)
Sometimes, you have to step outside of the person you’ve been and remember the person you were meant to be. The person you want to be. The person you are.—H.G. Wells (via aestheticintrovert)
