"You must live in the present, launch yourself on every wave, find your eternity in each moment. Fools stand on their island of opportunities and look toward another land. There is no other land; there is no other life but this."

Henry David Thoreau (via purplebuddhaproject)

If you want respect you have to earn it. You shouldn’t give respect to just anyone. You can acknowledge whatever they say, take it, but at the end of the day you don’t have to respect them necessarily. You can come off heartless, you can come off as indifferent, but the whole matter of it all is knowing when to not take (pardon my language), when to not take someone’s shit. You can come off mean, you can come off cruel, and you may be called selfish and feel a bit selfish, but you should never have to settle nor tolerate someone’s pessimism or negativity or brokenness if it means harming you mentally or physically. People will always be spiteful and use their own problems against you to justify their self-worth and that’s where the line has to be drawn. It may be bittersweet that these type of people may exist and leave you, but let them leave. If they really acknowledged your existence or respected you, they wouldn’t use their own broken soul or insecurities or pain to inflict on you. Respect yourself, you owe it to yourself to not allow those people to put you down.

You can put me down, you can say whatever you want, but one thing’s for certain is that your presence, your negativity, your bitterness, your anger, and your spitefulness, it has nothing on me. I will not bend my pride nor my respect for myself for you.

"Asking women to respect themselves in order to ‘earn’ the right to be treated like a human being is total horseshit. But suggesting that you have the right to treat her exactly as you please because she didn’t adhere to your archaic views of feminine propriety is misogyny, plain and simple."

Clementine Ford (via jkwithers)

"You have to learn to say no without feeling guilty. Setting boundaries is healthy. You need to learn to respect and take care of yourself."

"We all die. The goal isn’t to live forever, the goal is to create something that will."

 You are a generous and moral (not to confuse with moralizing) person. You always work on self-improvement. You are very ambitious and have very high standards. People might think that communicating with you is difficult, but for you, it isn’t easy to be who you are. You work very hard but you are not in the least selfish. You work because you want to improve the world. You have a great capacity to love people until they hurt you. But even after they do… you keep loving. Very few people can appreciate everything you do as well as you deserve. ” interesting~

"We can never judge the lives of others, because each person knows only their own pain and renunciation. It’s one thing to feel that you are on the right path, but it’s another to think that yours is the only path."

Nothing can be beautiful.

Not all the spaces inside you need to be filled.

Who you still have the chance to be, lives in the spaces you give yourself.
