"When you reach for the stars, you are reaching for the farthest thing out there. When you reach deep into yourself, it is the same thing, but in the opposite direction. If you reach in both directions, you will have spanned the universe."
-Vera Nazarian, The Perpetual Calendar of Inspiration (via wordsnquotes)
"My life is a struggle between my need for acceptance, my fear of rejection, and a desire to not care at all."
-Anonymous (via wnq-writers)
"الألم وألوان الخيبة والكآبة لا توجد لتحزننا ولتجردنا من القيمة والكرامة، وإنما وجدت لتزيدنا نضجاً وصفاءً"
Hermann Hesse, Peter Camenzind
- Translation: ”Suffering and disappointments and melancholy are there not to vex us or cheapen us or deprive us of our dignity but to mature and transfigure us.”
