what an inspiring quote

5

What we take for granted about our sense of self, everything we see, everything we remember, is nothing more than a construct of the mind.

be unapologetically you.

they say he stole her,
as if Persephone were only something to be coveted
and not a goddess in her own right,
as if she were not as feared in their realm as he.

they say that he corrupted her,
that Hades’s flower wilted under the stench of his death
but they forget that Spring is rebirth,
that if anyone could be touched by the underworld and flourish,
that it would be her.


they say that he tricked her,
that she did not want to stay.
but they forget how the winter drags on,
how each year it creeps in sooner,
leaving bones aching for a hint of her warmth,
and it is not because he will not let her leave
it is because
she does not want to go.

—  C.B. 
I’ve decided that it’s possible to love someone for entirely selfless reasons, for all of their flaws and weaknesses, and still not succeed in having them love you back. It’s sad, perhaps, but not tragic, unless you dwell forever in the pursuit of their elusive affections.
—  Cammie McGovern, Say What You Will

People will judge you regardless of what you do. You might as well be judged doing something you care about. 

  • {Twice on Kim Shinyoung's Radio Show}
  • Tzuyu: I changed my cellphone yesterday
  • Kim Shinyoung: Oh really? From a Samsung 6 to a Samsung 7?
  • Tzuyu: An apple.
  • All of Twice: [Bursts out laughing]
  • {Later, Back at the Dorm}
  • Nayeon: You know, today on the radio show, you used the wrong word for apple when you were talking about your new phone. You said apple, meaning the fruit, instead of Apple, meaning the phone.
  • Tzuyu: No I meant what I said.
  • Tzuyu: [Holds up an apple]
  • Nayeon: Tzuyu that's not a cellphone, you can't make calls on that.
  • Tzuyu: Oh yeah?
  • Tzuyu: [Taps on the apple]
  • The apple: 911 what's your emergency.
  • Nayeon: [Horrified expression while The X-Files theme plays in the background]

It’s nice wanting to make others happy, however at the end of the day you are the one living your life; make sure what you do brings happiness to yourself too.

Life lessons I’ve re-learned through Rogue One

- Small deeds always have great consequences

- Disobeying a superior can be necessary if you feel it is right

- A bit of faith is better than none when facing tough times

- It is never too late to fight for something

- It is better to act unsuccessfully than not act at all

- Trust goes both ways

- Spreading/doing harmful actions for a “good cause” doesn’t make you faultless

- We can all become heroes in the simplest ways, but when these small heroes are brought together, their voice can be heard
