I’d woken up early, and I took a long time getting ready to exist. -The Book of Disquiet (Fernando Pessoa)

I want things to hurt —
cigarette smoke to burn my lungs,
glass shards to cut my skin,
pavement to rasp against my knees.

I do not want beautiful;
I want a goddamn tragedy.

-Meggie C. Royer, from “Tragedies"  (via lyrexz)

The most basic and powerful way to connect to another person is to listen. Just listen. Perhaps the most important thing we ever give each other is our attention. -Rachel Naomi Remen  (via thatkindofwoman)

A warrior feeds her body well. She trains it, works on it. Where she lacks knowledge, she studies. But above all, she must believe in her strength of will and purpose and heart and soul. -David Gemmel  (via thatkindofwoman)

Do it.
Get on the plane, get the train,
Walk 300 miles.
Get to her front door and tell her
“I know this is crazy
But I need you now.”
Our lives are too short to always be sensible,
Get the girl.
Distance makes no difference if your eyes light up when she laughs. -FRS.  (via thatkindofwoman)
