“Don’t let yourself feel worthless: often through life you will really be at your worst when you seem to think best of yourself; and don’t worry about losing your “personality,” as you persist in calling it: at fifteen you had the radiance of early morning, at twenty you will begin to have the melancholy brilliance of the moon, and when you are my age you will give out, as I do, the genial golden warmth of 4 p.m.”—F. Scott Fitzgerald, This Side of Paradise (via mortuaires)
I saw her today, I saw her face. It was the face of love, and I knew I had to run away… And get down on my knees and pray, that they go away and still it begins, needles and pins. Because of all my pride, the tears I gotta hide.
She’s worth to him than me, let her go ahead, take his love instead, and one day she will see.
She’ll feel those needle and pins. Hurtin’ her, hurtin’ her.. ♪♫
“There is no reality except the one contained within us. That is why so many people live such an unreal life. They take the images outside of them for reality and never allow the world within to assert itself.”—Hermann Hesse (via vanished)
“You remember and dwell on all the things you’ve lost and ignore all the things you haven’t. Because your scars are like stars. Yet the night stays perfectly black.”—Iain Thomas, I Wrote This For You (via 4mbivalent)
