Without dreams, we reach nothing. Without love, we feel nothing. And without God, we are nothing.
You have both war and poetry in your mind.
(via disenchanted-moon)
Reading is primarily a symptom. Of a healthy imagination, of our interest in this and other worlds, of our ability to be still and quiet, of our ability to dream during daylight.
Carmen Callil (among MANY others), Stop What You’re Doing and Read This (via quoted-books)
Fantasy is hardly an escape from reality. It’s a way of understanding it.
Lloyd Alexander (via observando)
Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could; some blunders and absurdities have crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day.
Ralph Waldo Emerson (via h-o-r-n-g-r-y)
He liked the mere act of reading, the magic of turning scratches on a page into words inside his head.
John Green, An Abundance of Katherines (via observando)

Can we stop waiting
for the life we want to live,
and live it instead?
