These violent delights have violent ends
I’m not excited, but should I be? Is this the fate that half of the world has planned for me?
Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, The Kiss. 1893, oil on cardboard. Private collection.
I think the saddest people always try their hardest to make people happy because they know what it’s like to feel absolutely worthless and they don’t want anyone else to feel like that.
Robin Williams (via allhopeisgon-e)
In the midst of hate, I found there was, within me, an invincible love. In the midst of tears, I found there was, within me, an invincible smile. In the midst of chaos, I found there was, within me, an invincible calm. I realized, through it all…that in the middle of winter, I finally found that within me there lies an invincible summer. And that makes me happy. For it says that no matter how hard the world pushes against me, within me, there’s something stronger—something better, pushing right back.

If you ever figure me out, please teach me who I am.
