9068 "Incredible change happens in your life when you decide to take control of what you do have power over instead of craving control over what you don’t."
— Steve Maraboli, Life, the Truth, and Being Free (via larmoyante)
37 "Be patient toward all that is unsolved in your heart and try to love the questions themselves, like locked rooms and like books that are now written in a very foreign tongue. Do not now seek the answers, which cannot be given you because you would not be able to live them. And the point is, to live everything. Live the questions now. Perhaps you will then gradually, without noticing it, live along some distant day into the answer."
— Rainer Maria Rilke (via mkmicho)
72 "The greatest challenge to any thinker is stating the problem in a way that will allow a solution."

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. You think you can get rid of things, and people too—leave them behind. You don’t yet know about the habit they have, of coming back.
Time in dreams is frozen. You can never get away from where you’ve been."
— The Blind Assassin by Margaret Atwood (via crimsun)

— Julia Gregson, East of the Sun (via lunaoki)
37590 "Stop trying to “get it together.” The biggest lie we’re told when we’re growing up is that soon as we’re adults, as soon as we’re in college, finish college, get that job, have that steady income, find that someone special, “find ourselves,” find that perfect house, get that retirement fund, have those children, everything will fall into place. Here’s a secret: it won’t. Every new development in your life, good or bad, big or small, will come with its own very special set of challenges. The sooner you accept that, the better off you’ll be."
