Be still, sad heart! and cease repining;
Behind the clouds is the sun still shining;
Thy fate is the common fate of all,
Into each life some rain must fall.
written by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
Always go with your passions. Never ask yourself if it’s realistic or not.

The truth is, I pretend to be a cynic, but I am really a dreamer who is terrified of wanting something she may never get.
written by Joanna Hoffman (via wordsthat-speak)
I’m a paradox. I want to be happy, but I think of things that make me sad. I’m lazy, yet I’m ambitious. I don’t like myself, but I also love who I am. I say I don’t care, but I really do. I crave attention, but reject it when it comes my way. I’m a conflicted contradiction. If I can’t figure myself out, there’s no way anyone else has.

Just think how many thoughts a blanket smothers while one lies alone in bed, and how many unhappy dreams it keeps warm.

I’m the type of person who doesn’t find it painful to be alone. I find spending an hour or two every day running alone, not speaking to anyone, as well as four or five hours alone at my desk, to be neither difficult nor boring. I’ve had this tendency ever since I was young. When given a choice, I much preferred reading books on my own or concentrating on listening to music over being with someone else.
