Quote reblogged from hope. with 515 notes

You spend your whole life stuck in the labyrinth, thinking about how you’ll escape it one day, and how awesome it will be, and imagining that future keeps you going, but you never do it. You just use the future to escape the present.
— Alaska Young, Looking for Alaska (John Green)

Quote reblogged from xerox candy bar with 345 notes

Fiction allows us to slide into these other heads, these other places, and look out through other eyes. And then in the tale we stop before we die, or we die vicariously and unharmed, and in the world beyond the tale we turn the page or close the book, and we resume our lives.
— Neil Gaiman, American Gods (via pavorst)

Post reblogged from or just some human sleep with 156 notes

"The Aliens," by Charles Bukowski

hateshiploveship:

you may not believe it
but there are people who go through life
with very little friction
or distress.
they dress well
eat well
sleep
well.

they
are contented
with their family
life.

they
have moments of
grief but all in all
they are undisturbed
and ofte feel
very good.

and when they die
it is an easy death
usually in their
sleep.

you may not believe it but
such people do
exist.

but I
am not
one of them.

oh no
I am not
one of them
I am not even
near to being
one of them
but they are
there

and I am
here

Quote reblogged from xerox candy bar with 218 notes

Do not put statements in the negative form.
And don’t start sentences with a conjunction.
If you reread your work, you will find on rereading that a
great deal of repetition can be avoided by rereading and editing.
Never use a long word when a diminutive one will do.
Unqualified superlatives are the worst of all.
De-accession euphemisms.
If any word is improper at the end of a sentence, a linking verb is.
Avoid trendy locutions that sound flaky.
Last, but not least, avoid cliches like the plague.
— William Safire, Great Rules of Writing (via pavorst)

want to fix you
save you

This is my own reminder that I am free and I need to free myself from the things that hurt me, and that no one can tell me how to live my life, for it is mine and no one else’s.
