"If flowers can teach themselves how to bloom after winter passes,
so can you."

"It is okay to be at a place of struggle. Struggle is just another word for growth. Even the most evolved beings find themselves in a place of struggle now and then. In fact, struggle is a sure sign to them that they are expanding; it is their indication of real and important progress. The only one who doesn’t struggle is the one who doesn’t grow. So if you are struggling right now, see it as a terrific sign — celebrate your struggle."
- Neale Donald Walsch (via seabois)
"You are mysterious. I love you. You’re beautiful, intelligent, and virtuous, and that’s the rarest known combination."

"You shouldn’t try to stop everything from happening. Sometimes you’re supposed to feel awkward. Sometimes you’re supposed to be vulnerable in front of people. Sometimes it’s necessary because it’s all part of you getting to the next part of yourself."
- Cecelia Ahern, The Book of Tomorrow (via seabois)
"Bring me warm rain and dried lavender and you. I want you most of all."

"You either like me or you don’t. It took me twenty-something years to learn how to love myself, I don’t have that kinda time to convince somebody else."

"I think the big mistake in schools is trying to teach children anything, and by using fear as the basic motivation. Fear of getting failing grades, fear of not staying with your class, etc. Interest can produce learning on a scale compared to fear as a nuclear explosion to a firecracker."
- Stanley Kubrick (via seabois)
"How odd, I can have all this inside me and to you it’s just words."
- David Foster Wallace (via seabois)

- Charlotte Brontë, Jane Eyre (via seabois)
"Go all the way with it. Do not back off. For once, go all the goddamn way with what matters."
- Ernest Hemingway (via seabois)
"Our culture has accepted two huge lies. The first is that if you disagree with someone’s lifestyle, you must fear or hate them. The second is that to love someone means you agree with everything they believe or do. Both are nonsense. You don’t have to compromise convictions to be compassionate."
- Rick Warren (via seabois)
