"Life will break you. Nobody can protect you from that, and living alone won’t either, for solitude will also break you with its yearning. You have to love. You have to feel. It is the reason you are here on earth. You are here to risk your heart. You are here to be swallowed up."

"What does seventy million years mean to beings who live one-millionth as long? We are like butterflies who flutter for a day and think it is forever."
— Carl Sagan, Cosmos pg. 27 (via wethinkwedream)
"You still have a lot of time to make yourself be what you want."
— S.E. Hinton, The Outsiders (via cutely-perverted)
