"It’s like the people who believe they’ll be happy if they go and live somewhere else, but who learn it doesn’t work that way. Wherever you go, you take yourself with you. If you see what I mean.”
— Silas, The Graveyard Book, Neil Gaiman (via readingandrighting)
"No matter how far you travel, you can never get away from yourself.”

"Be brave.
Courage isn’t measured by the
number of people you’ve turned away
or by the counts of the nights you’ve
spent alone because you refuse to
give someone the chance to love you.
Being alone is not poetic;
you’ve got to let them in.
Let them peel back your skin
and waltz into your bloodstream
and love them,
love them,
love them.”
— Emily Palermo, “A Lesson in Entropy” (via theilliteratewrites)
"I have to say that although it broke my heart, I was, and still am, glad I was there.”

"I hope there are days when you fall in love with being alive.”

"I think,
along the way
I broke my own heart.”
