When you live in the dark for so long, you begin to love it. And it loves you back, and isn’t that the point? You think, the face turns to the shadows, and just as well. It accepts, it heals, it allows.

But it also devours.
― Raymond Carver, Late Fragment  (via sharpmachine)

The only people I would care to be with now are artists and people who have suffered: those who know what beauty is, and those who know what sorrow is: nobody else interests me.
― Oscar Wilde (via psych-facts)


Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I’ve tasted of desire,
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice
I think I know enough of hate
To say that for destruction ice
Is also great
And would suffice.
― Robert Frost (via observando)
Just because someone desires you, it does not mean that they value you.

Read it over.


Let those words resonate in your mind.

Watch out for intellect,
because it knows so much it knows nothing
and leaves you hanging upside down,
mouthing knowledge as your heart
falls out of your mouth.

The moment you become friends with your inner Self, you realize that the failures or hindrances that you met earlier were caused more by your disconnected status with your inner Being.

Poetry is what gets lost in translation.
― Robert Frost (via observando)
Life is a balanced system of learning and evolution. Whether pleasure or pain; every situation in your life serves a purpose. It is up to us to recognize what that purpose could be.
― ― Steve Maraboli (via psych-quotes)
A thinker sees his own actions as experiments and questions—as attempts to find out something. Success and failure are for him answers above all.
― ― Friedrich Nietzsche (via psych-quotes)
Painting is poetry that is seen rather than felt, and poetry is painting that is felt rather than seen.
― Leonardo da Vinci (via observando)
