Chance is always powerful. Let your hook be always cast; in the pool where you least expect it, there will be a fish.

Ovid (via beherenowandzen)

Be patient and tough; someday this pain will be useful to you.

Ovid (via beherenowandzen)

I am learning every day to allow the space between where I am and where I want to be to inspire me and not terrify me.

Tracee Ellis Ross   (via mymangotree)

Take hold of your own life.
See that the whole existence is celebrating.
These trees are not serious, these birds are not serious. The rivers and the oceans are wild, and everywhere there is fun, everywhere there is joy and delight. Watch existence, listen to the existence and become part of it.

Osho (via velvetbluejay)

People love talking, and I have never been a huge talker. I carry on an inner monologue, but the words often don’t reach my lips.

Gillian Flynn, Gone Girl (via thatkindofwoman)

She’s known sadness, and it has made her kind.

Nathan Filer, The Shock of the Fall  (via palebabyland)

To truly laugh, you must be able to take your pain and play with it.

Charlie Chaplin (via childrenofthetao)

No one’s life should be rooted in fear. We are born for wonder, for joy, for hope, for love, to marvel at the mystery of existence, to be ravished by the beauty of the world, to seek truth and meaning, to acquire wisdom, and by our treatment of others to brighten the corner where we are.

Dean Koontz, Life Expectancy (via observando)

Allow beauty to shatter you regularly. The loveliest people are the ones who have been burnt and broken and torn at the seams, yet still send their open hearts into the world to mend again, and again, and again.

Victoria Erickson (via venuschild)

It is never too late to turn on the light. Your ability to break an unhealthy habit or turn off an old tape doesn’t depend on how long it has been running; a shift in perspective doesn’t depend on how long you’ve held on to the old view.

When you flip the switch in that attic, it doesn’t matter whether its been dark for ten minutes, ten years or ten decades.

The light still illuminates the room and banishes the murkiness, letting you see the things you couldn’t see before.

Its never too late to take a moment to look.
