Success is not permanent & failure is not fatal. -Mike Ditka
I love you just the way you are
but you don’t see you like I do.
You shouldn’t try so hard to be perfect.
Trust me, perfect should try to be you.
And it’s okay if you have to go away
just remember the telephone works both ways
And if I never ever hear them ring
If nothing else I’ll think the bells inside
Have finally found you someone else and that’s okay
Cause I’ll remember everything you sang
For the past 10 years, my mom has never been able to take a trip outside of the little dreary city-town we moved to from Taiwan. I hardly have any time and trying to get a day off is equivalent to breaking an arm for me at work— but I felt it was important. You should always take the opportunity to be with your parents. This is important.
John Green, The Fault in Our Stars (via kushandwizdom)
Sometimes, you read a book and it fills you with this weird evangelical zeal, and you become convinced that the shattered world will never be put back together unless and until all living humans read the book.
Oscar Wilde (via kushandwizdom)
Most people are other people. Their thoughts are someone else’s opinions, their lives a mimicry, their passions a quotation.
