Develop an interest in life as you see it; the people, things, literature, music - the world is so rich, simply throbbing with rich treasures, beautiful souls and interesting people. Forget yourself.Henry Miller (via observando)
There are people who are generic. They make generic responses and they expect generic answers. They live inside a box and they think people who don’t fit into their box are weird. But I’ll tell you what, generic people are the weird people. They are like genetically-manipulated plants growing inside a laboratory, like indistinguishable faces, like droids. Like ignorance.C. JoyBell C. (via observando)
But sometimes it takes more courage to live than to shoot yourself.Albert Camus, A Happy Death (via coffeepeople)
Why do they always teach us that it’s easy and evil to do what we want and that we need discipline to restrain ourselves? It’s the hardest thing in the world—to do what we want. And it takes the greatest kind of courage. I mean, what we really want.Ayn Rand (via observando)

I discovered Magic Realism because of you.
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)
