Perhaps you will then gradually, without noticing it, live along some distant day into the answer." — Rainer Maria Rilke (via mkmicho)

43 "When you’re young, you think everything you do is disposable. You move from now to now, crumpling time up in your hands, tossing it away. You’re your own speeding car.
