Mind Altering Substance
But there’s a story behind everything. How a picture got on a wall. How a scar got on your face. Sometimes the stories are simple, and sometimes they are hard and heartbreaking.
Mitch Albom (via kari-shma)
Compassion hurts. When you feel connected to everything, you also feel responsible for everything. And you cannot turn away. Your destiny is bound with the destinies of others. You must either learn to carry the Universe or be crushed by it. You must grow strong enough to love the world, yet empty enough to sit down at the same table with its worst horrors.
Andrew Boyd (via evolution0fconsciousness)
Strong words outlast the paper they are written upon.
Joseph Bruchac (Code Talker)
All our young lives we search for someone to love. Someone who makes us complete. We choose partners and change partners. We dance to a song of heartbreak and hope. All the while wondering if somewhere, somehow, there’s someone perfect who might be searching for us.
Kevin Arnold, narrating in The Wonder Years (1988)
Not until we are lost do we begin to understand ourselves.
Henry David Thoreau (via crashinglybeautiful)
Except a living man, there is nothing more wonderful than a book! A message to us from the dead—from human souls we never saw, who lived, perhaps, thousands of miles away. And yet these, in those little sheets of paper, speak to us, arouse us, terrify us, teach us, comfort us, open their hearts to us as brothers.
