It does not count if you believe in yourself when it’s easy to believe in yourself. It does not count if you believe the world can be a better place when the future looks bright. It does not count if you think you’re going to make it when the finish line is right in front of you.
It counts when it’s hard to believe in yourself, when it looks like the world’s going to end and you’ve still got a long way to go.
That’s when it counts. That’s when it matters the most.

"I’ve always hated the ‘Who are you?’ question. This is a philosophical inquiry. Answering that question is why we’re on earth. You can’t answer it in thirty seconds or in an elevator."
— Sandy Nathan, Numenon (via observando)
"I won’t beg someone to love me. I learned long ago that there is no use in hopeless pleas of trying to make someone stay. I am too good to chase someone who does not know my worth and I am too wild to keep waiting for someone who doesn’t acknowledge my value. I want to be loved unconditionally. I shouldn’t have to fight so hard for it. I do not have the time to prove to someone that I am worth it. I shouldn’t have to prove any of that; I am worth more than that."

"Today, no matter where I am going, no matter what I am doing, it is my dominant intent to see that which I want to see. Nothing is more important than that I feel good."

"I might think I can’t take it any more, that I can’t go on any more, but one way or another I get past that."
— Haruki Murakami, After Dark (via larmoyante)
"Life moves on, whether we act as cowards or heroes. Life has no other discipline to impose, if we would but realize it, than to accept life unquestioningly. Everything we shut our eyes to, everything we run away from, everything we deny, denigrate or despise, serves to defeat us in the end. What seems nasty, painful, evil, can become a source of beauty, joy, and strength, if faced with an open mind. Every moment is a golden one for him who has the vision to recognise it as such."
— Henry Miller (via kari-shma)
"It isn’t what you have or who you are or where you are or what you are doing that makes you happy or unhappy. It is what you think about it."

"Só disse que tenho saudade, não falei que ia ficar te esperando. To por aí, fazendo o que quero. Mas relaxa, levo sempre a saudade comigo."

It’s not the things you don’t want that drag you under. It’s the things you think you want.
Those, are the killers.
