"The best feeling in the world comes when you start feeling good again after you’ve been feeling awful."
Oprah Winfrey (via raindropsonredroses)
"It is impossible to live without failing at something, unless you live so cautiously that you might as well not have lived at all - in which case, you fail by default."
J.K. Rowling (via quote-book)
I believe life is constantly testing us for our level of commitment,
and life’s greatest rewards are reserved for those who demonstrate
a never-ending commitment to act until they achieve.
This level of resolve can move mountains, but it must be constant and consistent.
As simplistic as this may sound, it is still the common denominator
separating those who live their dreams from those who live in regret.
"Your friend Lady Gaga was not a “cool” girl in school. And today I’m a strong, courageous woman. I didn’t discover myself until I was out of high school. When there’s nobody judging you every day, you’re forced to look inside and be who you truly are. At the end of the day, you won’t be happy until you love yourself."
Lady GaGa (Teen Vogue, September 2010)
"How strange it is. We have these deep terrible lingering fears about ourselves and the people we love. Yet we walk around, talk to people, eat and drink. We manage to function. The feelings are deep and real. Shouldn’t they paralyze us? How is it we can survive them, at least for a little while? We drive a car, we teach a class. How is it no one sees how deeply afraid we were, last night, this morning? Is it something we all hide from each other, by mutual consent? Or do we share the same secret without knowing it? Wear the same disguise?"
Don DeLillo (via shawarmageddon)
"You don’t have to forget. You just have to move on."
The Lazarus Project (2008)
"Because a real whore cannot admit to herself.. much less other people…"
Mrs. Griffith (Easy A)
"A life of obedience may not be easy, but it will be blessed."

"The way for a more productive, more inspired, more joyful life is getting enough sleep."
