"I always forget that this is my life. The fact that I have control of my future seems so unreal to me but this is indeed my life, and I can do whatever I want to do. If I want to smile, I can smile. If I want to jump, I can jump. I can stop breathing any time but of course I wouldn't; this moment is too beautiful. I'm alive, I'm my own person. It's exhilarating." -anon

"There's somethings I'll never understand. I'll never understand the goosebumps i get when first stepping into hot water. I'll never understand the dreams i have with strangers in them, people I've never met or seen. I'll never understand why someone can keep going back to what hurt them. but what i do understand is that once we understand everything the world loses its shine. curiosity killed the cat, but the cat had nine lives." -anon

"Hate to burst your bubble but you’re never going to reach that door. You’re better off going backwards and advancing twice as fast in the opposite direction. At least you’ll get somewhere!" -anon

“Jesus, I’m not going to be one of those people who sits around talking about what they’re gonna do. I’m just going to do it. Imagining the future is a kind of nostalgia…” -Looking for alaska

"i don’t believe in originality. you take inspiration from whatever moves you and you find your voice in those things." -Tim Walker

"Your idea of me is fabricated with materials you have borrowed from other people and from yourself. What you think of me depends on what you think of yourself. Perhaps you create your idea of me out of material you would like to eliminate from your own idea of yourself. Perhaps your idea of me is a reflection of what other people think of you. Or perhaps what you think of me is simply what I think of you?" -472239364(blog name)

"20 years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did do. so throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sail. Explore. Dream."

"It’s the unknown we fear when we look upon death and darkness, nothing more." -Albus Dumbledore

"The first couple years that you're making stuff, what you're making isn't so good - it's not that great. It's trying to be good, it has ambition to be good, but it's not quite that good. But your taste, the things that got you into the game, your taste is still killer and your taste is good enough that you can tell that what you're making is kind of a disappointment to you. A lot of people never get past that phase and a lot of people at that point quite.

And the thing I would just like to say to you with all my heart is that most everybody I know who does interesting creative work, they went through a phase of years where they has really good taste and they could tell what they were making wasn't as good as they wanted it to be. We knew that it didn't have the special thing that we wanted it to have and the thing to do is - everybody goes through it right now, if you're just getting out of that phase or if you're just starting off and you're entering into that phase, you've got to know it's totally normal and the most important possible thing you can do is do a lot of work. Do a huge volume of work."

“Stepping onto a brand-new path is difficult, but not more difficult than remaining in a situation, which is not nurturing to the whole woman.” ― Maya Angelou
