“There are plenty of others willing to call you a failure. A fool. A loser. A hopeless souse! Don’t you ever say it of yourself. You send out the wrong signal. That is what people pick up. Do you understand? If you care about something fight for it. You hit a wall, push through it. There’s something you need to know about failure, Tintin: You can never let it defeat you.”—Captain Haddock, The Adventures of Tintin (via quote-book)
So I went to this get together tonight and Justin Timberlake comes on.
Chick-“This is my husband! Him and Chris Brown.”
Me-“…are you serious?? Chris Brown…?”
Her- “Totally! He is so hot!”
Me- “Uh…maybe before he beat Rhianna.”
Her-“I don’t care! He can beat me all he wants!!”
ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME?! YOU ARE A DUMB CUNT. I CAN’T BELIEVE WE ARE THE SAME AGE YOU STUPID PERSON. YOUR VOICE IS ANNOYING. GO AWAY.
“I want you to tell me about every person you’ve ever been in love with. Tell me why you loved them, then tell me why they loved you. Tell me about a day in your life you didn’t think you’d live through. Tell me what the word “home” means to you and tell me in a way that I’ll know your mothers name just by the way you describe your bed room when you were 8. See, I wanna know the first time you felt the weight of hate and if that day still trembles beneath your bones.”—Andrea Gibson (via roscoe-)
“I thought that I had kind of beaten my issues, but when you struggle with depression or anxiety or anything else, you never really win. You always carry it with you and the point, I learned, isn’t to win. The point is to keep fighting. It turned out that “I’m not sad anymore” wasn’t a victory speech. It was a battle cry.”—Dan “Soupy” Campbell (via ialwayslovedyoubestsid)
“The feelings that hurt most, the emotions that sting most, are those that are absurd; the longing for impossible things, precisely because they are impossible; nostalgia for what never was; the desire for what could have been; regret over not being someone else; dissatisfaction with the world’s existence. All these half-tones of the soul’s consciousness create in us a painful landscape, an eternal sunset of what we are.”—Fernando Pessoa (via larmoyante)
