I don’t know why my body is so intent on sabotaging my brain, when my brain is perfectly capable of sabotaging itself.

Alma Wheatley, Queen’s Gambit

Never, ever, ever use a borrowed voice.
If you spend your whole life being someone else, who’s gonna be you?

Dan Sherry, Handsome Devil

oh, the irony.

Und ich falle
Ich falle
Bitte fangt mich nicht auf
Lasst mich fallen
Mich fallen
den Absturz nehm ich in Kauf

Marco Michalzik & Manuel Steinhoff: Ikarus

Announcing who you are to the world is pretty terrifying because — what if the world doesn’t like you?

I’m done living in a world where I don’t get to be who I am.

I get to exhale now.
I get to be more ME than I have been in a very long time.

Love, Simon

Was ich brauche, ist der Löwenzahn im Frühling. Das leuchtende Gelb, das für die Wiedergeburt steht und nicht für Zerstörung. Ein Versprechen, dass das Leben weitergeht, ungeachtet unserer Verluste. Dass es wieder gut werden kann.

Suzanne Collins. Flammender Zorn.

Never say goodbye because goodbye means going away, and going away means forgetting.

J. M. Barrie: Peter Pan.

Des Menschen Herz erdenkt sich seinen Weg; aber der HERR allein lenkt seinen Schritt.

Sprüche 16,9

It’s not about doing things different from others, it’s about doing things different from yourself.

(frei nach) Benjamin Reichen, Åbäke

You know the great thing, though, is that change can be so constant you don’t even feel the difference until there is one. It can be so slow that you don’t even notice that your life is better or worse, until it is. Or it can just blow you away, make you something different in an instant.

George Monroe. Life As A House

Okay, I’m going to say something out loud that I’ve been doing a pretty good job of not saying out loud lately.
What you and Tony have, what I thought — for a second — you and I had, what I know that Marshall and Lily have, I want that. I do. I keep waiting for it to happen. I’m waiting for it to happen and I guess I’m just tired of waiting.
And that is all I’m going to say on that subject.

Ted Mosby. How I Met Your Mother. Season 4. Ep 23.
