Listening for patterns in the sound
of an endless static sea.
"Haters hate because there’s something missing within them or within their lives that they see in you. They believe they can’t have it and that causes negative emotion within them. If they believed they could have it too, they would be inspired by you to get it themselves. It would be a positive emotion. The fact that it brings out hate or jealous is because they don’t believe they can. Belief in possibility is the difference between jealousy and inspiration.”
— Emily Maroutian (via wordsnquotes)
"So the universe is not quite as you thought it was. You’d better rearrange your beliefs, then. Because you certainly can’t rearrange the universe.”
— Isaac Asimov (via liberatingreality)
"I was happy, but happy is an adult word. You don’t have to ask a child about happy, you see it. They are or they are not. Adults talk about being happy because largely they are not. Talking about it is the same as trying to catch the wind. Much easier to let it blow all over you. This is where I disagree with the philosophers. They talk about passionate things but there is no passion in them. Never talk happiness with a philosopher.”

Does she have good style or is she just skinny? :: a real question y’all need to ask yourselves about some of these fashion bloggers…

"Please talk to me
About everything
Or anything
Or nothing in particular
Just so I know
I am still worth your words.”
— M.S. (via coffee-crinkled-pages)
"Who the fuck cares where you went to school or where you work? The question is: Is your everyday experience good, healthy, beautiful? Because I have to tell you, while it might be cool to work for a company like Google, Apple, or The New Yorker, if your job is stupid, stressful and your boss is an asshole, there is nothing good or prestigious about that. While it might seem right to go to a school like Berkeley, if classes are overcrowded and students are nervous, anxious, religious zealots from Orange County, are you sure you want to go there? What’s good about that? To believe in prestige is to privilege abstract, collective impression over palpable, daily experience. To which I say: fuck prestige. Do what serves your everyday vitality.”
