Quote reblogged from observando with 704 notes

To be nobody but
yourself in a world
which is doing its best day and night to make you like
everybody else means to fight the hardest battle
which any human being can fight and never stop fighting.
— e.e. cummings (via observando)

Quote reblogged from observando with 885 notes

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I’ve tasted of desire,
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice
I think I know enough of hate
To say that for destruction ice
Is also great
And would suffice.
— Robert Frost (via observando)

Quote reblogged from WORDS N QUOTES with 476 notes

Without their chloroplasts plants would be left like the rest of us, to eat what they find. Instead they hold out their green palms and catch light. If there is magic in the world, surely this is it: the descendants of tiny creatures in leaves, capable of ingesting the sun.

Rob Dunn, “The Glory of Leaves,” National Geographic

Quote reblogged from a chest full of heartache with 6 notes

I try to make myself realize that I have learned the difference between right and wrong. That there is such a thing as right and wrong. But instead I’ve learned that these are things - this “right”, this “wrong”- these are things that we are told. Simply told to believe. These are things we have not tested. And while most of the things we are told may be true, it is not until we have tested them, taunted them, flaunted them, that we truly know they are right. Or wrong. Or true. Or false. Or somewhere in-the-fucking-between. And I think I know now a little better which is which. And I also know I’ll never quit testing this world. I’ll never rely on common knowledge. Or common denominators. Or even common sense, for that matter.

I suspect the truth is that we are waiting, all of us, against insurmountable odds, for something extraordinary to happen to us.

Oh how it burns it burns it burns
The sun has been planted inside of me
And it rises it rises it rises
With each spark that comes from my heart
Ignited by the match from the outside world

and when I feel again
It’s the ocean lapping against the edges of my soul
That calms calms me calms me.
