“The important thing is not to stop questioning. Curiosity has its own reasons for existing. One cannot help but be in awe when he contemplates the mysteries of eternity, of life, of the marvelous structure of reality.”—Albert Einstein (via littlemiss) (via quote-book) (via amberowen)
“My heart, it’s like my chest can barely contain it, like it doesn’t belong to me anymore, it belongs to you. If you wanted it, I’d wish for nothing in exchange, no gifts, no goods, no demonstrations of devotion —nothing but knowing you love me too. Just your heart, in exchange for mine.”—Claire Danes, Stardust (via julie911) (via quote-book) (via lovelybluepony) (via loveisrain) (via amberowen)
“I would not leave you in your times of trouble. We never could have come this far. I took the good times, I’ll take the bad times, I’ll take you just the way you are.”—Billy Joel (via littlemiss) (via amberowen)
life keeps going even when others refuse to join in the potential fun. life never slows down or asks if she is in the way. life is strong, she keeps going even when others stop breathing. life is never surprised. i am finding out daily that nothing is new under the sun, as Solomon said it. it’s one thing to read it and believe it, but it’s totally different when you realize it within your own reality. nothing is new. you just have to nod and say, “oh, so this is what that feels like.” i’ve heard of that, but i didn’t realize that it would feel like this. essentially, everyone goes through the same things. the life changing things. high school is kind of life changing, college years, marriage, babies, babies grow up, marry and leave. then there’s death. now, i realize that this is a rough summary of the basic life changing moments in life. but my point is, life doesn’t stop and let you take a breather. she isn’t polite. so what’s the correct response? how do you finally let go of everyone you have held on for your total existence? how do you come to a solid foundation and say, “i am no longer responsible for you” ((well, i never was, but i feel responsible))? creamy chai. so good. it relaxes me. i have all kinds of thoughts swimming around in my brain today. sub conscience thoughts that have been begging to get out.
“The Christian is in a different position from other people who are trying to be good. They hope, by being good, to please God if there is one; or — if they think there is not — at least they hope to deserve approval from good men. But the Christian thinks any good he does comes from the Christ-life inside him. He does not think God will love us because we are good, but that God will make us good because He loves us; just as the roof of a greenhouse does not attract the sun because it is bright, but becomes bright because the sun shines on it.”—C.S. Lewis, Mere Christianity (via projectglockenspiel) (via loveisrain) (via amberowen)
“A jewel’s just a rock put under enourmous heat and pressure. Extraordinary things are always hiding in places people never think to look.”—Jodi Picoult (via autumnfringes) (via loveisrain) (via amberowen)
“ho! ho! ho! to the bottle i go
to heal my heart and drown my woe.
rain may fall and wind may blow,
and many wiles be still to go,
but under a tall tree i will lie,
and let the clouds go sailing by.”—J.R.R. Tolkien (via amberowen)
“Oh, how I wish you wouldn’t worry so. There’s hope in every breath. But when fear infects the bones, I’m told, the heart is always next.”—I wrote this for you blogspot (via iammybeloveds) (via amberowen)
