"Sometimes, I feel the past and the future pressing so hard on either side that there’s no room for the present at all."
Evelyn Waugh (via stuzie)
"You cannot convince people to love you. This is an absolute rule. No one will ever give you love because you want him or her to give it. Real love moves freely in both directions. Don’t waste your time on anything else."
Cheryl Strayed, Tiny Beautiful Things (via coyotegold)
"When people hurt you over and over, think of them like sand paper. They may scratch and hurt you a bit, but in the end, you end up polished and they end up useless."
Chris Colfer (via moaka)
