My Better Self

“Well, turn out we’re not that much special, but there’s something special about feeling extraordinarily perfect just by being perfectly ordinary”

– Oryza Sativani

“When you have only two pennies left in the world, buy a loaf of bread with one, and a lily with the other.”

(this proverb continues such: the reason to do so is a penny for living and a penny for having a good reason to do so. (the Lily representing the ideal of beauty and aesthetics)

Chinese Proverb (via ashramof1)

“She is a year ago.
She is the ache in the empty,
the first time you changed your mind
and the last time you were sorry about it.
She is a city sleeping beside you,
warm and vast and familiar, streetlights
yawning and stretching,
and you have never. You have never.
You have never loved someone like this.
She is your first stomach ache.
Your first panic attack and your
favorite cold shower.
A mountain is moving somewhere
inside of you, and her handprints are all over it.
Here. Here. Here, you love her.
In the fractured morning, full of
too tired and too sad, she is the first
foot that leaves the bed.
She is the fight in you, the winning
and the losing battle
floating like a shipwreck in your chest.
When they ask you what your favorite moment is,
You will say Her.
You will always say Her.”

Caitlyn Siehl, Her, Her, Her (via alonesomes)

“Everything we call real is made of things that cannot be regarded as real. If quantum mechanics hasn’t profoundly shocked you, you haven’t understood it yet.”

Niels Bohr (via utcjonesobservatory)

Although, Richard Feynman reassured us in stating, "I think I can safely say that nobody understands quantum mechanics."
