Fulton J. Sheen (via observando)


"You cannot find peace by avoiding life."

Virginia Woolf (via observando)

"Never tell the truth to people who are not worthy of it."

Mark Twain (via observando)


We’re picking up cues from our culture about the way we live our lives and the pace at which we live our lives. Rest isn’t a priority, because so often rest is confused with laziness.


Rest, instead of being something passive, is actually an act of resistance. We live in The City That Never Sleeps — so resting may be the most countercultural and spiritual thing we do with our lives.

"I’m not upset that you lied to me, I’m upset that from now on I can’t believe you."

Friedrich Nietzsche (via observando)

"Blinded, I was blindsided."

Bon Iver

"The gods envy us. They envy us because we’re mortal, because any moment may be our last. Everything is more beautiful because we’re doomed. You will never be lovelier than you are now. We will never be here again."

Homer (via thatlitsite)


"You can’t make fire feel afraid."
