What is normal? Normal is only ordinary; mediocre. Life belongs to the rare, exceptional individual who dares to be different.
V.C. Andrews, My Sweet Audrina (via quotes-shape-us)
Everyone gets scared at times. It’s only the fools who won’t admit it.
Jennifer A. Nielsen, The Runaway King (via quotes-shape-us)
You must make a decision that you are going to move on. It wont happen automatically. You will have to rise up and say, ‘I don’t care how hard this is, I don’t care how disappointed I am, I’m not going to let this get the best of me. I’m moving on with my life.
Joel Osteen, Your Best Life Now: 7 Steps to Living at Your Full Potential (via quotes-shape-us)
Those days are gone, and good fucking riddance to them; unhappiness really meant something back then. Now it’s just a drag, like a cold or having no money. If you really wanted to mess me up, you should have got to me earlier.
Nick Hornby, High Fidelity (via quotes-shape-us)
You know I’m old in some ways-in others-well, I’m just a little girl. I like sunshine and pretty things and cheerfulness-and I dread responsibility.
F. Scott Fitzgerald, This Side of Paradise (via quotes-shape-us)
I don’t think I could love you so much if you had nothing to complain of and nothing to regret. I don’t like people who have never fallen or stumbled. Their virtue is lifeless and of little value. Life hasn’t revealed it’s beauty to them.
Boris Pasternak, Doctor Zhivago (via quotes-shape-us)
It is a curious thought, but it is only when you see people looking ridiculous that you realize just how much you love them.
Agatha Christie, An Autobiography (via quotes-shape-us)
There is a vitality, a life force, an energy, a quickening that is translated through you into action, and because there is only one of you in all time, this expression is unique. And if you block it, it will never exist through any other medium and will be lost.
Martha Graham (via quotes-shape-us)
Each contact with a human being is so rare, so precious, one should preserve it.
Anaïs Nin (via quotes-shape-us)
