If you want something you’ve never had, you must do something you’ve never done… — Kivan Polimis (via thepiquant)
I have loved the stars too fondly to be fearful of the night. — Galileo Galilei (via cavesoflilith)
When you want something bad enough, you make the time—regardless of your other obligations. The truth is most people just don’t want it bad enough. Then they protect their ego with the excuse of time. Don’t let yourself off the hook with excuses. It’s entirely your responsibility to make your dreams come true. Besides, the perfect time never arrives. You’re always too young or old or busy or broke or something else. If you constantly fret about timing things perfectly, they’ll never happen. — Fried, Jason (2010). Rework (Kindle Locations 360-361). Crown Business. Kindle Edition. (via ario)
In the passionate dark of dawn, on the path between death and life, within view of the watchful stars and within earshot of the beautiful, obscure anthems, a voice told of the trials and joys promised to our alley. —
Naguib Mahfouz, The Harafish
I love this book. I love Naguib Mahfouz.
Destiny is real. And she’s not mild-mannered. She will come around and hit you in the face and knock you over and before you know what hit you, you’re naked- stripped of everything you thought you knew and everything you thought you didn’t know- and there you are! A bloody nose, bruises all over you, and naked. And it’s the most beautiful thing. — C. JoyBell C. (via danseurs)
