“There will be a few times in your life when all your instincts will tell you to do something, something that defies logic, upsets your plans, and may seem crazy to others. When that happens, you do it. Listen to your instincts and ignore everything else. Ignore logic, ignore the odds, ignore the complications, and just go for it.”—Remember When (Judith McNaught)
“You’re like the sea.
Beautiful on the surface, without a doubt.
But underneath the waves,
that’s where you are pure art in my eyes.
The further you dive, the more you learn.
The thing is, I don’t think anyone has ever had the lung capacity to really get to explore you.
The caverns and curves that compose your deepest and darkest secrets could be enough to crush any diver.
But I am not any diver.
I can hold my breath.
Let me delve into your sea,
I will not steal your treasures for they are yours to keep.
Share them with me, and let me appreciate you from the ground up.
I promise you, I can hold my breathe.”—(via thewrongcoast)
“Nothing is free. Everything has to be paid for. For every profit in one thing, payment in some other thing. For every life, a death. Even your music, of which we have heard so much, that had to be paid for. Your wife was the payment for your music. Hell is now satisfied.”—Ted Hughes, “The Tiger’s Bones”
