I mean, they say you die twice. One time when you stop breathing and a second time, a bit later on, when somebody says your name for the last time.

Look at you. You’re young. And you’re scared. Why are you so scared? Stop being paralyzed. Stop swallowing your words. Stop caring what other people think. Wear what you want. Say what you want. Listen to the music you want to listen to. Play it loud as fuck and dance to it. Go out for a drive at midnight and forget that you have school the next day. Stop waiting for Friday. Live now. Do it now. Take risks. Tell secrets. This life is yours. When are you going to realize that you can do whatever you want?

When I was a boy and I would see scary things in the news, my mother would say to me, ‘Look for the helpers. You will always find people who are helping.’ To this day, especially in times of disaster, I remember my mother’s words and I am always comforted by realizing that there are still so many helpers — so many caring people in this world.
Fred Rogers (via themightierthor)
…Thinking hard right now about the helpers, and the helped.
If you’re in Boston, I’m thinking about you. Stay safe.

There is some good in this world, and it’s worth fighting for.

Be loveable if you want love,
because a pretty face isn’t enough
The Art of Love by Ovid (via speightdaysaweek)
When I had money I had friends
Whom only money binds;
When I was poor I had the friends
Whom only hardship finds.

I dare not call thee foe,
For I have nothing if I let thee go.
Faith in the face is shoddy
and everyone needs something more than body.
Ovid’s “The Art Of Love”
Advice is a dangerous gift, even from the wise to the wise, and all courses may run ill.
The Fellowship of the Ring by J.R.R. Tolkien
