Henry Miller on growing old, the perils of success, and how to be young at heart
An early-morning walk is a blessing for the whole day.
Henry David Thoreau  (via h-o-r-n-g-r-y)
Men are afraid that women will laugh at them. Women are afraid that men will kill them.
Margaret Atwood  (via thatkindofwoman)
I like messy people; people who don’t fit in a box or stay between the lines, but who’s integrity is greater than any rule book and who’s loyalty is stronger than blood.
Jim Wern  (via yudoku)
To forgive is the highest, most beautiful form of love. In return, you will receive untold peace and happiness
― Robert Muller (via thatkindofwoman)
Vulnerability sounds like truth and feels like courage. Truth and courage aren’t always comfortable, but they’re never weakness.
Brene Brown (via h-o-r-n-g-r-y)
Very often we don’t go elsewhere because we are looking for another person. We go elsewhere because we are looking for another self. It isn’t so much that we want to leave the person we are with as we want to leave the person we have become.
Esther Perel (via thatkindofwoman)
So called ‘late-bloomers’ get a bad rap. Sometimes the people with the greatest potential often take the longest to find their path because their sensitivity is a double edged sword- it lives at the heart of their brilliance, but it also makes them more susceptible to life’s pains. Good thing we aren’t being penalized for handing in our purpose late. The soul doesn’t know a thing about deadlines.

Self Purification Through Self Observation
Vipassana Meditation (via new-ancient)
Above all, don’t lie to yourself. The man who lies to himself and listens to his own lie comes to a point that he cannot distinguish the truth within him, or around him, and so loses all respect for himself and for others. And having no respect he ceases to love.
Fyodor Dostoyevsky, The Brothers Karamazov (via observando)
Man is the only creature that consumes without producing. He does not give milk, he does not lay eggs, he is too weak to pull the plough, he cannot run fast enough to catch rabbits. Yet he is lord of all the animals. He sets them to work, he gives back to them the bare minimum that will prevent them from starving, and the rest he keeps for himself.
― George Orwell   (via thatkindofwoman)
So many people glorify and romanticize “busy”. I do not. I value purpose. I believe in resting in reason and moving in passion. If you’re always busy/moving, you will miss important details. I like the mountain. Still, but when it moves, lands shift and earth quakes.
