the mind manifesting life

Azar Nafisi, Reading Lolita in Tehran (via ohteenscanrelate)

You get a strange feeling when you’re about to leave a place. Like you’ll not only miss the people you love but you’ll miss the person you are now at this time and this place, because you’ll never be this way ever again.

Hunter S. Thompson  (via lazyyogi)

(via dee-lirium)

We are all alone, born alone, die alone, and — in spite of True Romance magazines — we shall all someday look back on our lives and see that, in spite of our company, we were alone the whole way. I do not say lonely — at least, not all the time — but essentially, and finally, alone. This is what makes your self-respect so important, and I don’t see how you can respect yourself if you must look in the hearts and minds of others for your happiness.

Lao Tzu (via darksideoftheshroom)

A good traveler has no fixed plans and is not intent on arriving.

Rumi (via purplebuddhaproject)

My soul is from elsewhere, I’m sure of that, and I intend to end up there.
