No matter what anybody tells you, words and ideas can change the world.

We don’t read and write poetry because it’s cute. We read and write poetry because we are members of the human race. And the human race is filled with passion. And medicine, law, business, engineering, these are noble pursuits and necessary to sustain life. But poetry, beauty, romance, love, these are what we stay alive for.

(Dead Poets Society, 1989)

Me
That initial anger she had felt turned to sadness, and now it had become something else, almost a dullness of sorts. Even though she was constantly in motion, it seemed as if nothing special ever happened to her anymore. Each day seemed exactly like the last, and she had trouble differentiating among them.
Nicholas Sparks, Message in a Bottle (via quotes-shape-us)
I always break somewhere in i love you;
for how could they speak of it
like it’s just a spoonful of honey
when the skies & even the universe
aren’t enough to encompass its profundity.
Confession #5 | spilledraindrops (via spilledraindrops)
The unhappiest people in this world, are those who care the most about what other people think.

Suddenly this defeat.
This rain.
The blues gone gray
And the browns gone gray
And yellow
A terrible amber.
In the cold streets
Your warm body.
In whatever room
Your warm body.
Among all the people
Your absence
The people who are always
Not you.


I have been easy with trees
Too long.
Too familiar with mountains.
Joy has been a habit.
Now
Suddenly
This rain.

Jack Gilbert (via quotes-shape-us)
Everybody knows the river comes
The river goes but you stopped here
You stopped here for me
You took my heart in tow
How could I let you go
Kina Grannis, Dear River (via quotes-shape-us)

I want us to be together without bothering about ourselves- to be really together because we ARE together, as if it were a phenomenon, not a thing we have to maintain by our own effort.
D.H. Lawrence, Women in Love (via quotes-shape-us)
No one knows for certain how much impact they have on the lives of other people. Oftentimes, we have no clue. Yet we push it just the same.
Jay Asher, Thirteen Reasons Why (via quotes-shape-us)
Dear Future You,
Hold on. Please.
Love, Me.
Dear Current You,
I’m holding on. But it hurts.
Love, Me.
Dear Past You,
I held on. Thank you.
Love, Me.
pleasefindthis, I Wrote This For You (via quotes-shape-us)
In school we learn that mistakes are bad, and we are punished for making them. Yet, if you look at the way humans are designed to learn, we learn by making mistakes. We learn to walk by falling down. If we never fell down, we would never walk.
Robert T. Kiyosaki, Rich Dad, Poor Dad (via quotes-shape-us)
I write to give myself strength. I write to be the characters that I am not. I write to explore all the things I’m afraid of.
Joss Whedon (via quotes-shape-us)
Mental pain is less dramatic than physical pain, but it is more common and also more hard to bear. The frequent attempt to conceal mental pain increases the burden: it is easier to say “My tooth is aching” than to say “My heart is broken.”
C.S. Lewis, The Problem of Pain (via quotes-shape-us)
