I would challenge you to a battle of wits, but I see that you are unarmed.
William Shakespeare (via ablogwithaview)

I learned to stop being so rough and tumble, independent because it kept me disconnected from people. I thought that would make me strong. I learned to be vulnerable and put myself out there to experience meaningful relationships with people. What I didn’t realize was how weak I actually was; I discovered how unprepared I was dealing when with people genuinely. In the end, I think I’m terrified of being myself.

Terrifyingly Devious, Deviously Terrifying.
And suddenly she became unsure if the vastness of her mind swallowed up the wholeness of her heart, leaving an ache that could no longer be remedied by another.

If you love a flower, don’t pick it up.
Because if you pick it up it dies and it ceases to be what you love.
So if you love a flower, let it be.
Love is not about possession.
Love is about appreciation.

Kenneth: To go it alone or to go with a partner? When you choose a partner, you have to have compromises and sacrifices, but it’s a price you pay. Do I want to follow my every whim and desire as I make my way through time and space? Absolutely. But at the end of the day, do I need someone when I’m doubting myself and I’m insecure and MY heart fails me? Do I need someone, who when the heat gets hot, has my back?

Darius: Sooo… Do you?

Kenneth: I do.

Big Machine- Mark Duplass Acoustic Version

Written by Ryan Miller

Safety Not Guaranteed Original Soundtrack


I love this song. I love this scene. I love Mark Duplass singing and I love that they left Aubrey Plaza’s lines before and after the song in for this version. This movie is just amazing and on Netflix and everybody should watch it. 

I’m so afraid that this is real and I love being scared by every second of it.
I was within and without, simultaneously enchanted and repelled by the inexhaustible variety of life.
Nick Caraway, F. Scott Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby
