❝ My heart wants roots. My mind wants wings. I cannot bear their bickerings. ❞
— E. Y. Harburg    (via lucasta)
❝ This is what I like about photographs. They’re proof that once, even if just for a heartbeat, everything was perfect. ❞
— Jodi Picoult (via wordsthat-speak)
❝ …and I am out with lanterns, looking for myself. ❞
— Dickinson, Emily. The Letters of Emily Dickinson.  (via wordsnquotes)
❝ Despite what you may believe, you can disappoint people and still be good enough. You can make mistakes and still be capable and talented. You can let people down and still be worthwhile and deserving of love. Everyone has disappointed someone they care about. Everyone messes up, lets people down, and makes mistakes. Not because we’re inadequate or fundamentally inept, but because we’re imperfect and fundamentally human. Expecting anything different is setting yourself up for failure. ❞
— Daniell Koepke (via fairestregal)
