Because words are nothing if they aren’t meant.
― (via floralliah)
But it is so easy to make the error of unfolding future sufferings, so far in front of one that one’s eyes must pass beyond them and never again return, while in reality, both today and later, one will stand with a palpable body and a real head, a real forehead that is, for smiting on with one’s hands.
The most authentic thing about us is our capacity to create, to overcome, to endure, to transform, to love and to be greater than our suffering.
― Ben Okri (via emotional-algebra)
