Do not try to be pretty. You weren’t meant to be pretty; you were meant to burn down the earth and graffiti the sky. Don’t let anyone ever simplify you to just “pretty.”
One day, whether you
you will stumble upon
someone who will start
a fire in you that cannot die.
However, the saddest,
most awful truth
you will ever come to find––
is they are not always
with whom we spend our lives.
Beau Taplin, “The Awful Truth” (via coffeekaling)
My father had taught me to be nice first, because you can always be mean later, but once you’ve been mean to someone, they won’t believe the nice anymore. So be nice, be nice, until it’s time to stop being nice, then destroy them.
― Laurell K. Hamilton (via psych-quotes)
Try to say nothing negative about anybody for three days, for forty-five days, for three months. See what happens to your life.
Yoko Ono (via c-oquetry)
