"Respect yourself enough to walk away from anything that no longer serves you, grows you, or makes you happy."
Robert Tew (via ba-c)
"I can get my head turned by a good-looking guy as much as the next girl. But sexy doesn’t impress me. Smart impresses me, strength of character impresses me. But most of all, I am impressed by kindness. Kindness, I think, comes from learning hard lessons well, from falling and picking yourself up. It comes from surviving failure and loss. It implies an understanding of the human condition, forgives its many flaws and quirks. When I see that in someone, it fills me with admiration."
Lisa Unger, Beautiful Lies (via creatingaquietmind)
Bruce: “I’m about to yawn.”
we’re the most beautiful when we aren’t looking to impress.
"Just look at life with more playful eyes. Don’t be serious. Seriousness becomes like a blindness. Don’t pretend to be a thinker, a philosopher. Just simply be a human being. The whole world is showering its joy on you in so many ways, but you are too serious, you cannot open your heart."
Osho (via ileu)
"Solitude, as I understand it, does not signify an unhappy state but rather, hidden royalty, profound incommunicability, yet a more or less somber knowledge of an unassailable singularity."
Jean Genet (via likeafieldmouse)
