Mine is “The world laughs in flowers” by Ralph Waldo Emerson.


If you want to know what a person is like, take a good look at how he treats his inferiors, not equals.



"Stay weird. Stay rude. Stay alive." ~Crime Junkies. Kept me safe in the city at night.

Literally every quote by ~John Green~ touches my soul.

Demand to see life's manager! Make life rue the day it thought it could give Cave Johnson lemons! Do you know who I am? I'm the man who's gonna burn your house down... with the lemons! I'm gonna get my engineers to invent a combustible lemon that burns your house down!

I repeat this to myself when I have anxiety attacks, it helps me to calm down:

"Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, but today is God's gift/a gift- that's why they call it the present."

Idk but it works
