"We are very good at preparing to live, but not very good at living. We know how to sacrifice ten years for a diploma, and we are willing to work very hard to get a job, a car, a house, and so on. But we have difficulty remembering that we are alive in the present moment, the only moment there is for us to be alive."
Thich Nhat Hanh (via obliteratedheart)
"I hope you read some fine books and kiss someone who thinks you’re wonderful, and don’t forget to make some art — write or draw or build or sing or live as only you can."
Neil Gaiman (via majortvjunkie)
"Sometimes you climb out of bed in the morning and you think, I’m not going to make it, but you laugh inside — remembering all the times you’ve felt that way."
Charles Bukowski (via sexreeducated)
"Life is about doing things that don’t suck with people who don’t suck."
John Green (via tuboddah)
"In your twenties, you’re practically a slave to your dreams. You abuse your body and mind to make your dreams come true."
