You will always be too much of something for someone: too big, too loud, too soft, too edgy. If you round out your edges, you lose your edge.
Apologize for mistakes. Apologize for unintentionally hurting someone — profusely. But don’t apologize for being who you are.
I align myself with people who support my growth. If you meet someone whose soul is not aligned with yours, send them love and move along.
Dr. Wayne Dyer
i’ll always love you ‘cause we grew up together and you helped make me who i am. i just wanted you to know there will be a piece of you in me always, and i’m grateful for that. whatever someone you become, and wherever you are in the world, i’m sending you love. you’re my friend to the end.

If you repeat something over and over again it loses its meaning; You watch the sunset too often it just becomes 6 pm, you make the same mistake over and over you stop calling it a mistake. If you just wake up wake up wake up wake up wake up wake up one day you’ll forget why
Phil Kaye from Repetition
When I drink a Glass of water, it’s thick and crawling with life. My mouth leads to the interior of my body — a caldron of disease, germs, and perversions of biology. I don’t exist individually. I’m made of millions of living creatures, eating each other, decomposing, eating each other.
Michael Gira, The consumer
I just ordered a bunch of cute things for my bedroom in my apartment and it makes me excited to have a new start.
For one, I won’t ever be living with my parents again (yay), I’ll have an entirely newly decorated bedroom that I will be able to feel comfortable to call home, begin fall classes that will solely be outdoor and environmental recreation courses, and a new job!
These next two weeks can’t go fast enough.
As the Secretary General of the United Nations, an organization of 147 member states who represent almost all of the human inhabitants of the planet Earth, I send greetings on behalf of the people of our planet. We step out of our solar system into the universe seeking only peace and friendship, to teach if we are called upon, to be taught if we are fortunate. We know full well that our planet and all its inhabitants are but a small part of the immense universes that surrounds us and it is with humility and hope that we take this step.
