From now on I live for myself. I have been living for others for many years. I have wasted so much time and gotten nothing in return. I will fade out these activities and start living for myself. I can’t get back all the years but I can get back my life.
Henry Rollins (via thatkindofwoman)
The best years of your life are the ones in which you decide your problems are your own. You do not blame them on your mother, the ecology, or the president. You realize that you control your own destiny.
Albert Ellis (via thatkindofwoman)
The gods envy us. They envy us because we’re mortal, because any moment may be our last. Everything is more beautiful because we’re doomed. You will never be lovelier than you are now. We will never be here again.
Homer, The Iliad (via peelsofpoetry)
She tried on different men and living with them as if they
were new shoes. After walking around in them a while, checking them for comfort
and what they did for her, she invariably shook her head no for one reason or
another, took them off, and then asked to try on another pair she had seen in
