"Allow yourself to be a beginner. No one starts off being excellent."
Wendy Flynn (via fawun)
"The world must accept her on her own terms or not at all."
"I remember
how seeing the shape of your mouth
that first time, I kept staring
until my blood turned to rain.

Some things take root
in the brain and just don’t
let go."
T.S Elliot, Slow Dance   (via grammatolatry)
"In general, people are not drawn to perfection in others. People are drawn to shared interests, shared problems, and an individual’s life energy. Humans connect with humans. Hiding one’s humanity and trying to project an image of perfection makes a person vague, slippery, lifeless, and uninteresting."
Robert Glover (via mirroir)
"7 Billion smiles, and yours is my favorite."
"I remember when I was younger and I wanted to be beautiful; now I’m older and I want to be intelligent. I want to burn hearts with brilliance and engulf souls with compassion. I want to be loved for my thoughts and nothing else."
