Life is the tragedy,’ she said bitterly. ‘You know how they categorize Shakespeare’s plays, right? If it ends with a wedding, it’s a comedy. And if it ends with a funeral, it’s a tragedy. So we’re all living tragedies, because we all end the same way, and it isn’t with a goddamn wedding.
― Robyn Schneider, The Beginning of Everything (via observando)
Oscar Wilde once said that to live is the rarest thing in the world, because most people just exist, and that’s all. I don’t know if he’s right, but I do know that I spent a long time existing, and now I intend to live.
Be softer with you. You are a breathing thing. A memory to someone. A home to a life.
Instead, pursue the things you love doing, and then do them so well that people can’t take their eyes off you.
A woman is only vulnerable when her nail polish is drying, and even then she can still pull a trigger.
― some great quote I heard somewhere once upon a time and that is very, very true (via dahlia—noir)
