The saddest word
in the whole wide world
is the word almost.
He was almost in love.
She was almost good for him.
He almost stopped her.
She almost waited.
He almost lived.
They almost made it.

You’re not a bad person for the ways you tried to kill your sadness.
I really needed to hear that right now. (via danger)
Of all man’s instruments, the most wondrous, no doubt, is the book. The other instruments are extensions of his body. The microscope, the telescope, are extensions of his sight; the telephone is the extension of his voice; then we have the plow and the sword, extensions of the arm. But the book is something else altogether: the book is an extension of memory and imagination.
Jorge Luis Borges (via observando)
It is necessary to have a strong desire for even the seemingly unattainable things. Never let the impossibility of the task ahead smother the fire in you. Truly, it’s astonishing what you can achieve for yourself while chasing the things you desire the most. Even if you never catch them.
Beau Taplin || T h e C h a s e (via afadthatlastsforever)
I hope you have the courage to pursue someone who is worth pursuing, and not someone who is convenient. Convenience is impatience disguised as your desires, you are worth more than what time has told you, you are worthy of finding someone who will wait for you; don’t settle for what is easy, settle for what is good.
