I was quiet, but I was not blind.
— Fanny Price, Mansfield Park (Jane Austen)
You are the universe, expressing itself as human for a little while.
— Eckhart Tolle (via everythingrelephant)
You watch the world bang door after door in your face, numbly, bitterly. You have forgotten the secret you knew, once, ah, once, of being joyous, of laughing, of opening doors.
— Sylvia Plath, The Unabridged Journals of Sylvia Plath (via requiemforthepast)
