The most intimate reactions of human beings have been so thoroughly reified that the idea of anything specific to themselves now persists only as an utterly abstract notion: personality scarcely signifies anything more than shining white teeth and freedom from body odour and emotions. The triumph of advertising in the culture industry is that consumers feel compelled to buy and use its products even though they see through them.Theodor Adorno, The Culture Industry: Enlightenment as Mass Deception (via fuckyeahexistentialism)
No matter how good things are, there will always be solitary nights you spend in your bedroom, in a car, or in a party full of your closest friends when it feels like the walls are caving in.Dan Campbell (via lolaandwillow)
I go to seek a Great Perhaps.François Rabelais (via observando)
Lonely people read a great deal, but say little and hear little. Life for them is mysterious; they are mystics and often see the devil where he is not."A Doctor’s Visit" by Anton Chekhov (via philosophicalmeandering)
But there are moments when one has to choose between living one’s own life, fully, entirely, completely — or dragging out some false, shallow, degrading existence that the world in its hypocrisy demands.Oscar Wilde (via onlinecounsellingcollege)
"How can anyone be confident in themselves without being delusional?"
I speak to everyone in the same way, whether he is the garbage man or the president of the university.Albert Einstein (via observando)
Every great story on the planet happened when someone decided not to give up, but kept going no matter what.Spryte Loriano (via observando)

Right now everything looks so strange to me, as if I don’t belong here. It’s me that’s out of place. And the worst thing is that I feel there’s somewhere I do belong, but I just can’t find it
L. J. Smith, The Awakening (via psych-facts)

Stop comparing where you’re at with where everyone else is. It doesn’t move you farther ahead, improve your situation, or help you find peace. It just feeds your shame, fuels your feelings of inadequacy, and ultimately, it keeps you stuck. The reality is that there is no one correct path in life. Everyone has their own unique journey. A path that’s right for someone else won’t necessarily be a path that’s right for you. And that’s okay. Your journey isn’t right or wrong, or good or bad. It’s just different. Your life isn’t meant to look like anyone else’s because you aren’t like anyone else. You’re a person all your own with a unique set of goals, obstacles, dreams, and needs. So stop comparing, and start livingDanielle Koepke (via lailadot)

Better to write for yourself and have no public, than to write for the public and have no self.Cyril Connolly (via observando)

I am standing on a piece of waste land. Why I have not been set down in a better country I do not know. Am I not worth it?Franz Kafka, from The Blue Octavo Notebooks (via kafkaesque-world)
