Maybe you can afford to wait. Maybe for you there’s a tomorrow. Maybe for you there’s one thousand tomorrows, or three thousand, or ten, so much time you can bathe in it, roll around it, let it slide like coins through you fingers. So much time you can waste it.
But for some of us there’s only today. And the truth is, you never really know.
The inability to communicate one’s thoughts is in very truth the most terrible of all kinds of loneliness.Friedrich Nietzsche (via purplebuddhaproject)
What horrifies me most is the idea of being useless: well-educated, brilliantly promising, and fading out into an indifferent middle age.Plath, Sylvia. The Unabridged Journals of Sylvia Plath. (via wordsnquotes)
If you admire somebody, you should go ahead and tell them. People never get the flowers while they can still smell them.Kanye West (via northglow)
Why do people have to be this lonely? What’s the point of it all? Millions of people in this world, all of them yearning, looking to others to satisfy them, yet isolating themselves. Why? Was the earth put here just to nourish human loneliness?Haruki Murakami, Sputnik Sweetheart (via introspectivepoet)
Let me tell you this: if you meet a loner, no matter what they tell you, it’s not because they enjoy solitude. It’s because they have tried to blend into the world before, and people continue to disappoint them.Jodi Picoult, My Sister’s Keeper (via blackbruise)
