We see the world, not as it is, but as we are — or, as we are conditioned to see it. When we open our mouths to describe what we see, we in effect describe ourselves, our perceptions, our paradigms.

What if I told you I’m incapable of tolerating my own heart?

— Virginia Woolf, Night and Day (via mrsfscottfitzgerald)

Try to let what is unfair teach you… What is unfair can be a stern but invaluable teacher… You can be shaped, or you can be broken. There is not much in between. Try to learn. Be coachable. Try to learn from everybody, especially those who fail. This is hard.

— David Foster Wallace; Infinite Jest (via wordpainting)

Make sure you marry someone who laughs at the same things you do.

— J.D.Salinger (via beaswellgirl)
