For a star to be born, there is one thing that must happen: a gaseous nebula must collapse.
This is not your destruction.
This is your birth.
I give myself very good advice, but I very seldom follow it
—Alice in Wonderland (via be-your-own-anchor-scott)
There were no sex classes. No friendship classes. No classes on how to navigate a bureaucracy, build an organization, raise money, create a database, buy a house, love a child, spot a scam, talk someone out of suicide, or figure out what was important to me. Not knowing how to do these things is what messes people up in life, not whether they know algebra or can analyze literature.
—William Upski Wimsatt (via perfect)
Songs are as sad as the listener.
—Jonathan Safran Foer (via psych-facts)
