It has been said that time heals all wounds. I do not agree. The wounds remain. In time, the mind, protecting its sanity, covers them with scar tissue, and the pain lessens, but it’s never gone.

Fernando Pessoa, The Book of Disquiet (via larmoyante)
Our disrespect for thinking: someone sitting in a chair, gazing out of a window blankly, always described as ‘doing nothing’.
Alain de Botton (via johnsteinbeck-)
A book can teach you, a conversation can assure you, a poem can seduce you, a genius can inspire you but only you can save yourself.
Anthony Anaxagorou (via thenocturnals)
There are no happy endings.
Endings are the saddest part.
So just give me a happy middle
and a very happy start.
