“So I want to get myself attached to something bolted down, so these winds of circumstance won’t keep blowing me around. From when I land to when I leave, there’s enough time to sleep and sing; I keep running around when all I want, is to lay motionless.”—Bright Eyes, Motion Sickness (via thegirloflostthings) (via quote-book)

“I’m not going to lie, though I do it often. When someone matters, I’ll tell them the truth, just like the way I only smile when it’s needed. I don’t overuse things, because things easily lose their meaning that way. I think you’re an amazing person. You’re smart, clever, witty, incredible with words and with the colours that flutter from each stroke of your paintbrush. When I look in your eyes, I see the sky. You’re still a bird trapped in that cage of yours, and one day, I’ll be there to see you fly.”—~ Sleeping with ghosts (via gatekeeper)
“…Your light is seen, your heart is known, your soul is cherished by more people than you might imagine…If you knew how many others have been touched in wonderful ways by you, you would be astonished. If you knew how many people feel so much for you, you would be shocked…You are far more wonderful than you think you are… Rest with that. Rest easy with that. Breathe again. You are doing fine. More than fine. Better than fine. You’re doin’ great. So relax. And love yourself today.”—~ Neale Donald Walsch (via gatekeeper)
“If ever there is tomorrow when we’re not together.. there is something you must always remember. You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think. But the most important thing is, even if we’re apart.. I’ll always be with you.”—Winnie the Pooh | Submitted by: royalsadness (via quote-book)
“I heard what you said. I’m not the silly romantic you think. I don’t want the heavens or the shooting stars. I don’t want gemstones or gold. I have those things already. I want…a steady hand. A kind soul. I want to fall asleep, and wake, knowing my heart is safe. I want to love, and be loved.”—Shana Abé (via kari-shma) (via quote-book)
“I was paying attention even when I told myself I wasn’t. If his voice hasn’t been the melody of my life, it’s been the bass line, so subtle you don’t notice it until it’s missing.”—~ Vanishing Acts (via gatekeeper)
so we didn’t get any snow here. because i live in florida. even though most of my friends from school got to hang out in the blizzard. but we did go to a christmas party with fake snowflakes and a nifty little faux photobooth (a clothed closet and a mac). so these happened. and were fun.
last ones my fav. oh and yes, there were props provided.
A good woman will pick you apart A box full of suggestions for your possible heart But you may be offended and you may be afraid But don’t walk away, don’t walk away
I’ve grown tired of holding this pose I feel more like a stranger each time I come home So I’m making a deal with the devils of fame Saying “let me walk away, please” You’ll be free child once you have died From the shackles of language and measurable time And then we can trade places, play musical graves Till then walk away, walk away
“You may not be her first, her last, or her only. She loved before she may love again. But if she loves you now, what else matters? She’s not perfect - you aren’t either, and the two of you may never be perfect together but if she can make you laugh, cause you to think twice, and admit to being human and making mistakes, hold onto her and give her the most you can. She may not be thinking about you every second of the day, but she will give you a part of her that she knows you can break - her heart. So don’t hurt her, don’t change her, don’t analyze and don’t expect more than she can give. Smile when she makes you happy, let her know when she makes you mad, and miss her when she’s not there”— Bob Marley
