“You must acquire the trick of ignoring those who do not like you. In my experience, those who do not like you fall into two categories: The stupid and the envious. The stupid will like you in five years time. The envious, never.”—Rochester, The Libertine
“There’s too much going on, but it’s calm under the waves, in the blue of my oblivion; under the waves, in the blue of my oblivion. Is that why they call me a sullen girl? A sullen girl. They don’t know I used to sail the deep and tranquil sea. But he washed me ashore, and he took my pearl, and left an empty shell of me.”—Fiona Apple, Sullen Girl
“I was such a better person than I am now. I’m serious. I was happy, I was open, I was curious. But I’ll tell you this - I knew it was ending. I was overwhelmed with sadness when I realized I was gonna change, and it’s all most likely gonna get worse. Like a nostalgia for the present, I couldn’t shake it.”—George Zinavoy; The Art of Getting By (2011)
“Be careful what you water your dreams with. Water them with worry and fear and you will produce weeds that choke the life from your dream. Water them with optimism and solutions and you will cultivate success. Always be on the lookout for ways to turn a problem into an opportunity for success. Always be on the lookout for ways to nurture your dream.”—Lao Tzu (via heoro)
It would be sensible of me…even highly advised…to have jumped in the shower 20 minutes ago and pulled together an outfit by now, seeing as how I’m supposed to be gone in less than an hour with friends…. but I’m not sensible at all, because I’m a pisces. So here I am tumbling when I should be doing “more important” things. Typical Erika Shit.
