“ Sometimes I imagine my own autopsy. Disappointment in myself: right kidney. Disappointment of others in me: left kidney. Personal failures: kishkes. When the clocks are turned back and the dark falls before I’m ready, this, for reasons I can’t explain, I feel in my wrists. And when I wake up and my fingers are stiff, almost certainly I was dreaming of my childhood. Yesterday I saw a man kicking a dog and I felt it behind my eyes. I don’t know what to call this, a place before tears. The pain of forgetting: spine. The pain of remembering: spine. All the times I have suddenly realized that my parents are dead, even now, it still surprises me, to exist in the world while that which made me has ceased to exist: my knees. To everything a season, to every time I’ve woken only to make the mistake of believing for a moment that someone was sleeping beside me: a hemorrhoid. Loneliness: there is no organ that can take it all. ”
“ I’m a bit awkward, and I’m a bit neurotic, and I’m a bit scared of people who are cleverer than me, and I’m scared of being judged and scared of getting it wrong, you know? But I just make it as if I never get it wrong, and people kind of believe me. —Matty Healy ”

You tell me I am not like most girls and learn to kiss me with your eyes closed. Something about the phrase, something about how I have to be unlike the women I call sisters in order to be wanted makes me want to spit your tongue out, like I am supposed to be proud you picked me, as if I should be relieved you think I am better than them. —Rupi Kaur
You want APOLOGIES, Girl, you might hold your Breath until you stop Breathing, Forever, Forever THE ONLY THING YOU'LL TASTE, is this CURSE on your lips I hope they taste of me FOREVER Format:SecretlyBrokenAndSilentlyHoping
She was never crazy, she just lived too vibrantly. Always contained “too much” energy, constantly had a fire in her eyes, her vitality would radiate onto others. The intensity of her spirit was just too much to take in at one time. Her character wasn’t flawed, it just underlined the flaws in everyone else’s personality.
I’m often difficult to love. I go through dark periods like the moon and I hide from myself. But I promise I will kiss your wounds when they’re hurting. Even if they’re in your soul, I can find them with the light in my fingertips. I will lead you to the river so you can remember how beautiful it feels to be moved by something that is out of your control. And when our dark periods match, we can breathe with the grass and look at the night sky. The stars will remind us of the beauty in our struggles and we won’t feel lost anymore. — Emery Allen
You know when sometimes you meet someone so beautiful and then you actually talk to them and five minutes later they're as dull as a brick? Then there's other people, when you meet them you think, "Not bad. They're okay." And then you get to know them and... and their face just sort of becomes them. Like their personality's written all over it. And they just turn into something so beautiful.

"The Taliban, like, they're using the name of Islam in a really weird way. I've been a Muslim my entire life and I've been educated, my mom's been educated, my aunts are educated, they're doctors, lawyers and whatnot. That [the Taliban] doesn't mean anything- like what are they even talking about? I think every religion,universally, teaches peace and love. Using a religion to promote your violent agenda doesn't mean anything or relate to anything from the actual religion. It's complete b u l l s h i t . I'm like 10 or 11 years old and we were at the airport and we got screened for 4 hours. A mom, a small 4 year old daughter and an 11 year old chubby overweight kid who's playing his video games. Oh yeah, we're definitely a threat. ISIS representing us is like me telling you "Hey you know the KKK? It represents every white American in the United States." ISIS does not represent me, my family, my friends, or the religion I follow." - One of the kids from "Teens React to Malala Yousafzai (youtube)

'And when people try to minimise your pain they are doing you a disservice. And when you try to minimise your own pain you are doing yourself a disservice. Don't do that. The truth is that it hurts because it's real. It hurts because it mattered. And that's an important thing to acknowledge to yourself. But that doesn't mean that it won't end, it won't get better, because it will.' ~ John Green
