“Growing up, I took so many cues from books. They taught me most of what I knew about what people did, about how to behave. They were my teachers and my advisors.”—Neil Gaiman, The Ocean at the End of the Lane (via bookmania)
It’s a big word for me.
I feel it everywhere.
Almost, but not quite.
I’m hoping hard for that.”—~ Joan Bauer, Almost Home (via conflictingheart)
“An amazing thing happens when you get honest with yourself and start doing what you love, what makes you happy. Your life literally slows down. You stop wishing for the weekend. You stop merely looking forward to special events. You begin to live in each moment and you start feeling like a human being. You just ride the wave that is life, with this feeling of contentment and joy. You move fluidly, steadily, calm and grateful. A veil is lifted, and a whole new perspective is born.”—(via blonde-buddha)
