I want to have more sex, travel more, drink more wine and love life.
— Zoe Saldana (via cultivate-solitude)
Whoever wants music instead of noise, joy instead of pleasure, soul instead of gold, creative work instead of business, passion instead of foolery, finds no home in this trivial world of ours.
— Hermann Hesse (via theoldeurope)
And you tried to change, didn’t you? Closed your mouth more. Tried to be softer, prettier, less volatile, less awake… You can’t make homes out of human beings. Someone should have already told you that. And if he wants to leave, then let him leave. You are terrifying, and strange, and beautiful. Something not everyone knows how to love.
— Warsan Shire, For Women Who Are Difficult To Love (via afwul)
