You will always be getting praise and blame, but do not let either affect the poise of the mind: follow the calmness, the absence of pride.
Buddha (via thecalminside)
It’s not about what you’re capable of, it’s about what you are willing to endure.
Orrin Woodward (via purplebuddhaproject)
Stop talking about love. Every asshole in the world says he/she loves somebody. It means nothing. It still doesn’t mean anything. What you feel only matters to you. It’s what you do to the people you say you love, that’s what matters. It’s the only thing that counts.
The Last Kiss
You think your pain and your heartbreak are unprecedented in the history of the world, but then you read.
James Baldwin (via books-foreverandalways)
I don’t need to write some long paragraph comparing your eyes to stars, or string together sentences about how your touch makes me shiver. Our love was fucking poetic before I messily scribbled down one word about you. I loved you with every bone in my entire fucking body and if that isn’t poetry, I don’t know what is.
