The daily routine of most adults is so heavy and artificial that we are closed off to much of the world. We have to do this in order to get our work done. I think one purpose of art is to get us out of those routines. When we hear music or poetry or stories, the world opens up again.Ursula LeGuin (via nathanielstuart)
I thought I was broken and I thought I was used up and I thought I had nothing left to give. I’d given everything and I didn’t really know what was left. But there’s a part of us that is unbreakable. You always find it again.Emma Watson (via wherethewildwordsgrow)
I was just thinking about someone else touching you and now I can’t decide on whether I want to break their hands or my own.i just want you all to myself, i’m sorry (via the-psycho-cutie)
If you can’t solve it, it isn’t a problem- it’s Reality. And sometimes Reality is the hardest thing to understand, and the thing that takes the longest to realize.
Stumbled upon this quote, and thought, this is exactly what I’m facing with my family. These situations have gone beyond problem status that can be fixed, and into the realm of Reality. And I can’t shift Reality.
