Let me be, was all I wanted. Be what I am, no matter how I am.
Henry Miller, Stand Still Like the Hummingbird (via observando)
More stories. More stories. Keep going! As long as we’re telling stories, we’re alive. As long as stories keep coming, with or without a point, dog stories, eel stories, scarecrow stories, rat stories, flood stories, recipe stories, stories full of lies and schoolbook stories, as long as stories have power to entertain us, no hell can take us in. Your turn, Walter. Tell stories as long as you love your life.

Relax. You will become an adult. You will figure out your career. You will find someone who loves you. You have a whole lifetime; time takes time. The only way to fail at life is to abstain.
Johanna de Silentio (via keepingupwiththekardacheyennes)
I’m not anyone, I’m just myself; whatever I am, I am something, and now I’m something you can’t help.
Ray Bradbury, The Martian Chronicles (via astrophil-to-stella)
You couldn’t relive your life, skipping the awful parts, without losing what made it worthwhile. You had to accept it as a whole—like the world, or the person you loved.
