The Omniscient Transcendentalist
“If you’re always questioning and allowing yourself to be humble enough to take your licks and accept the idea that your work can always be improved, then you’re much more inclined to learn from other people’s projects and become better.”

I think in general, no matter what crap people have to go through, there’s always relative peace eventually

Like everyone eventually finds someone they’re compatible with, or stability in their personal life or social circle

and it’s this belief that keeps me going, that one day I’m going to have the happiness I’ve always dreamed of. It’s just a work in progress.

“How intense can be the longing to escape from the emptiness and dullness of human verbosity, to take refuge in nature, apparently so inarticulate, or in the wordlessness of long, grinding labour, of sound sleep, of true music, or of a human understanding rendered speechless by emotion!”

- Boris Pasternak, Doctor Zhivago (via japan-overload)
