“I beg you to have patience with everything unresolved in your heart and try to love the questions themselves as if they were locked rooms or books written in a very foreign language. Don’t search for the answers, which could not be given to you now, because you would not be able to live them. And the point is, to live everything. Live the questions now. Perhaps then, someday far in the future, you will gradually, without even noticing it, live your way into the answer.”—Rainer Maria Rilke, from Letters To A Young Poet, translated from the German by Stephen Mitchell (Random House, 1984) (via A Poet Reflects) (via seenecdoche)
humans are so cute, when we say goodbye we put our arms around each other and to show we love someone we bring them flowers. we say hello by holding each other’s hand, and sometimes tiny little dewdrops form in our eyes. for pleasure we listen to arrangements of sounds, press our lips together, smoke dried leaves, get drunk off of old fruit. we’re all just little animals, falling in love and having breakfast beneath billions of stars :~)
“I mean, if you were to find a shattered mirror, find all the pieces, all the shards and all the tiny chips, and have whatever skill and patience it took to put all that broken glass back together so that it was complete once again, the restored mirror would still be spiderwebbed with cracks, it would still be a useless glued version of its former self, which could show only fragmented reflections of anyone looking into it. Some things are beyond repair. And that was me.”—Elizabeth Wurtzel, Prozac Nation (via havte)
Next time, I won’t let myself fall for someone. I refuse, until I see them fall for me first. And I know that might sound wrong, but if you’ve been hurt countless times then you will understand where I am coming from. You’ve been hurt because you believe that everyone else out there is like you, a giver. When in reality a lot of people you will come across, are takers. So wait, hold out for someone great who will give you the world just as you do for them.
I hate the gender binary I hate it when I have to struggle with myself about gender and I especially hate it when I have to struggle with other people about it because I’m confused enough as it is and I’m not an expert byee
