“If you want to write, you can. Fear stops most people from writing, not lack of talent, whatever that is. Who am I? What right have I to speak? Who will listen to me if I do? You’re a human being, with a unique story to tell, and you have every right. If you speak with passion, many of us will listen. We need stories to live, all of us. We live by story. Yours enlarges the circle.”

RICHARD RHODES (via advicetowriters.com)

This is 100% me right now with this book I am writing, I do not feel like I can do this book correctly and what right do I have to tell these stories.

MARGARET THATCHER TRIED TO THROW THE MINISTER OF MAGIC OUT THE WINDOW.

SHE WASN’T CALLED THE IRON LADY FOR NOTHING.

I’m sure at least for 20 years we will continue to find minor details like this about Harry Potter series

Watching through Buffy for the first time. Have reached season 6 and was not thrilled to see Riley turn up once more. But this episode hit me hard. When Buffy told Riley how hard it was to see him now he’s married and happy and got his life sorted, and she works in a fast-food diner and is lost and confused… 

this is why I stop myself from contacting my ex when I want to. Because I don’t want him to see that my life has not changed one bit since he left me five years ago, that I’m still a total mess. And time is running out. He’ll be leaving the country soon.

9PM
I have lived a thousand lives and I’ve loved a thousand loves. I’ve walked on distant worlds and seen the end of time. Because I read.
                                                        — George R.R. Martin

“The way sadness works is one of the strange riddles of the world. If you are stricken with a great sadness, you may feel as if you have been set aflame, not only because of the enormous pain, but also because your sadness may spread over your life, like smoke from an enormous fire. You might find it difficult to see anything but your own sadness, the way smoke can cover a landscape so that all anyone can see is black. You may find that if someone pours water all over you, you are damp and distracted, but not cured of your sadness, the way a fire department can douse a fire but never recover what has been burnt down.” Lemony Snicket, The Bad Beginning (via hypnone)

“Writers don’t write from experience, though many are resistant to admit that they don’t. I want to be clear about this. If you wrote from experience, you’d get maybe one book, maybe three poems. Writers write from empathy.” American activist, writer, educator and commentator, Nikki Giovanni (via ingridrdiaz)
