"There will always be a part of me that is dirty and sloppy, but I like that, just like all the other parts of myself."
"Loneliness is black coffee and late-night television; solitude is herb tea and soft music. Solitude, quality solitude, is an assertion of self-worth, because only in the stillness can we hear the truth of our own unique voices." Pearl Cleage
"One of the basic rules of the universe is that nothing’s perfect. Perfection simply doesn’t exist. The cosmos had taken its first step toward the beautiful place it is today all thanks to irregularity, imperfections and luck of order. So the next time someone complains that you have made a mistake, tell him that may be a good thing. Because without imperfection, neither you nor I would exist."
Stephen Hawking (via likeafieldmouse)
"Things that matter are not easy. Feelings of happiness are easy. Happiness is not. Flirting is easy. Love is not. Saying you’re friends is easy. Being friends is not."
David Levithan (via hellanne)
"I’ve got a bad case of the 3:00 am guilts -you know, when you lie in bed awake and replay all those things you didn’t do right? Because, as we all know, nothing solves insomnia like a nice warm glass of regret, depression and self-loathing."
