I write differently from what I speak, I speak differently from what I think, I think differently from the way I ought to think, and so it all proceeds into deepest darkness.

Franz Kafka

Everybody is identical in their secret unspoken belief that way deep down they are different from everyone else.

David Foster Wallace, Infinite Jest

I must learn to love the fool in me — the one who feels too much, talks too much, takes too many chances, wins sometimes and loses often, lacks self-control, loves and hates, hurts and gets hurt, promises and breaks promises, laughs and cries. It alone protects me against that utterly self-controlled, masterful tyrant whom I also harbor and who would rob me of my human aliveness, humility, and dignity but for my Fool.

Theodore Isaac Rubin

(via mommanatureschild)

I either eat too much or starve myself. Sleep for 14 hours or have insomniac nights. Fall in love very hard or hate passionately. I don’t know what grey is. I never did.

Hedonist Poet

The moment you start clinging to things, you have missed the target—you have missed. Because things are not the target, you, your innermost being, is the target—not a beautiful house, but a beautiful you; not much money, but a rich you; not many things, but an open being, available to millions of things.

Osho

(via quotestuff)

No man, for any considerable period, can wear one face to himself and another to the multitude, without finally getting bewildered as to which may be the true.

Nathaniel HawthorneThe Scarlet Letter

(via quotestuff)

Do not be too moral. You may cheat yourself out of much life. Aim above morality. Be not simply good, be good for something.

Henry David Thoreau

Sometimes me think, ‘What is friend?’ and then me say, ‘Friend is someone to share the last cookie with.’
