Two years ago, I was afraid of wanting anything. I figured wanting would lead to trying and trying would lead to failure. But now I find I can’t stop wanting. I want to fly somewhere on first class. I want to travel to Europe on a business trip. I want to get invited to the White House. I want to learn about the world. I want to surprise myself. I want to be important. I want to be the best person I can be. I want to define myself instead of having others define me. I want to win and have people be happy for me. I want to lose and get over it. I want to not be afraid of the unknown. I want to grow up and be generous and big hearted, the way people have been with me. I want an interesting and surprising life.

It’s not that I think I’m going to get all these things, I just want the possibility of getting them. College represents possibility. The possibility that things are going to change. I can’t wait.

I know I have the body but of a weak and feeble woman; But I have the heart and stomach of a king, and of a king of England.

“Oh," the girl said, shaking her head. "Don’t be so simple. People adore monsters. They fill their songs and stories with them. They define themselves in relation to them. You know what a monster is, young shade? Power. Power and choice. Monsters make choices. Monsters shape the world. Monsters force us to become stronger, smarter, better. They sift the weak from the strong and provide a forge for the steeling of souls. Even as we curse monsters, we admire them. Seek to become them, in some ways." Her eyes became distant. "There are far, far worse things to be than a monster.…” Jim Butcher, Ghost Story (via generaldarius)

Vijjaka*, who considered herself to be Sarasvati incarnate, said ‘Not knowing me Vijjaka whose skin is as dark as the petals of a dark blue lotus flower, in vain did Dandin declare that Sarasvati is all white”.

Don’t buy that “love is a serious word” crap. Love freely and carelessly. Love yourself. Love that lady bird that just flew past. Love that cutie that served you lunch at a café that you’ll probably never see again. Love every single cat you see. But don’t force it. And if/when you stop loving someone or something, don’t try to fight it.
