Jobs fill your pocket. Adventures fill your soul.Jaime Lyn Beatty (via franki-e)
I prefer winter and fall, when you feel the bone structure of the landscape. Something waits beneath it; the whole story doesn’t show.Andrew Wyeth (via likeafieldmouse)
The road has its own reasons and no two travelers will have the same understanding of those reasons. If indeed they come to an understanding of them at all.Cormac McCarthy, The Crossing (via likeafieldmouse)
I spent so long trying to convince myself that you were the rainstorm that would wash me away, pour me with affection, and cleanse me brand new.
I spent so long trying to convince myself you were the sea of gentle waves that would ease their way towards my sandy shore pulling back lightly once you reached my grasp, but always coming back for more.
I spent so long trying to convince myself that every storm is calming and every sea is harmless.
You are a rainstorm.
But you’re the lightning that struck me until my heart stopped and I found myself shaking on the floor.
You are the sea.
But you’re the tsunami that drags me underneath to the darkest part of the ocean until I forget how to breathe and drown in the lost hope you’ll give me air again.
I spent so long trying to convince myself you were just the safety I needed,
that I forgot to warn myself you were only the danger I wanted.
Why do they always teach us that it’s easy and evil to do what we want and that we need discipline to restrain ourselves? It’s the hardest thing in the world—to do what we want. And it takes the greatest kind of courage. I mean, what we really want.Ayn Rand (via observando)
