You have to decide who you are and force the world to deal with you, not with its idea of you. — James Baldwin (via farewell-kingdom)

SAFE in their alabaster chambers,
Untouched by morning and untouched by noon,
Sleep the meek members of the resurrection,
Rafter of satin, and roof of stone.
Light laughs the breeze in her castle of sunshine;
Babbles the bee in a stolid ear;
Pipe the sweet birds in ignorant cadence,—
Ah, what sagacity perished here!
Grand go the years in the crescent above them;
Worlds scoop their arcs, and firmaments row,
Diadems drop and Doges surrender,
Soundless as dots on a disk of snow. — Emily Dickinson

I knew it wasn’t too important, but it made me sad anyway. — JD Salinger (via elliptical)
when people talk about the way girls dress and say “respect yourself ladies”
because like I respect myself I think I’m awesome I am an A+ human being
but I also know my ass looks great in this dress
It’s a terrible thing, I think, in life to wait until you’re ready. I have this feeling now that actually no one is ever ready to do anything. There is almost no such thing as ready. There is only now. And you may as well do it now. Generally speaking, now is as good a time as any.
— Hugh Laurie
