"You are still young, free.. Do yourself a favor. Before it’s too late, without thinking too much about it first, pack a pillow and a blanket and see as much of the world as you can. You will not regret it. One day it will be too late."”

— Jhumpa Lahiri, The Namesake

I never play characters that are like me because I’m a boring person. I wouldn’t want to see me in a movie.

My favourite actress of all time!

“It’s much easier to not know things sometimes. Things change and friends leave. And life doesn’t stop for anybody. I wanted to laugh. Or maybe get mad. Or maybe shrug at how strange everybody was, especially me. I think the idea is that every person has to live for his or her own life and than make the choice to share it with other people. You can’t just sit there and put everybody’s lives ahead of yours and think that counts as love. You just can’t. You have to do things. I’m going to do what I want to do. I’m going to be who I really am. And I’m going to figure out what that is. And we could all sit around and wonder and feel bad about each other and blame a lot of people for what they did or didn’t do or what they didn’t know. I don’t know. I guess there could always be someone to blame. It’s just different. Maybe it’s good to put things in perspective, but sometimes, I think that the only perspective is to really be there. Because it’s okay to feel things. I was really there. And that was enough to make me feel infinite. I feel infinite.”

— Stephen Chbosky, The Perks of Being a Wallflower

Be confident. Be compassionate. Be intelligent. Be humble. Be generous. The universe returns to you what you put out.

Hayatlarımız hayallerimizle paralel biçimde ilerler. Ama asla tam olarak bağdaşmaz.

Bazı insanlar başlanmışken bitirilmek için okunan kitaplara benzer. Sonunda ne olacak diye merak edip okursun ama sonunda hiçbir şey olmaz.

"Şimdi acının ne olduğunu gerçekten biliyordum. Ayağını bir cam parçasıyla kesmek ve eczanede dikiş attırmak değildi bu. Acı,insanın birlikte ölmesi gereken şeydi. Kollarda,başta en ufak güç bırakmayan,yastıkta kafayı bir yandan öbür yana çevirme cesaretini bile yok eden şeydi.

Jose Mauro de Vasconcelos, Şeker Portakalı

things life is too short for:

- hating yourself
- pretending to laugh at “jokes” that are actually just bigoted statements
- not singing along to your favorite songs
- waiting hours to text someone back just to look cool
- bad coffee
- bad books
- mean people
- body shaming
- letting other people dictate your life
- larry’s storyline
