"Now I’ll be bold
As well as strong
And use my head alongside my heart
Cause I will wait, I will wait for you"
— Mumford and Sons — I Will Wait
"I have the choice of being constantly active and happy or introspectively passive and sad. Or I can go mad by ricocheting in between."
— ― Sylvia Plath, The Unabridged Journals of Sylvia Plath
"This life is what you make it. Not matter what, you’re going to mess up sometimes, it’s a universal truth. But the good part is you get to decide how you’re going to mess it up. Girls will be your friends - they’ll act like it anyway. But just remember, some come, some go. The ones that stay with you through everything - they’re your true best friends. Don’t let go of them. Also remember, sisters make the best friends in the world. As for lovers, well, they’ll come and go too. And babe, I hate to say it, most of them - actually pretty much all of them are going to break your heart, but you can’t give up because if you give up, you’ll never find your soul mate. You’ll never find that half who makes you whole and that goes for everything. Just because you fail once, doesn’t mean you’re gonna fail at everything. Keep trying, hold on, and always, always, always believe in yourself, because if you don’t, then who will, sweetie? So keep your head high, keep your chin up, and most importantly, keep smiling, because life’s a beautiful thing and there’s so much to smile about."
— Marilyn Monroe
"You can’t connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future."
— Steve Jobs, 2005 Stanford University commencement speech
"Love is not an emotion. It is your very existence."
"Painting is not meant to decorate apartments, painting is an instrument of war."
"It is in vain to say human beings ought to be satisfied with tranquility: they must have action; and they will make it if they cannot find it."
— Jane Eyre
