Herthen
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.
Albert Camus, The Stranger (via tbmlister)
Be a true representative of the goodness in your heart, and don’t expect it to be easy or even noticed.

Steve Almond, My Life in Heavy Metal

I call myself a peaceful warrior because the battles we fight are on the inside.
Dan Millman (via basketballbunnie)
Be faithful to that which exists within yourself.
Andre Gide (via quotesandnonsense)
I have been bent and broken, but — I hope — into a better shape.
Charles Dickens, Great Expectations (via oh-girl-among-the-roses)
There’s so much more to life than finding someone who will want you, or being sad over someone who doesn’t. There’s a lot of wonderful time to be spent discovering yourself without hoping someone will fall in love with you along the way, and it doesn’t need to be painful or empty. You need to fill yourself up with love. Not anyone else. Become a whole being on your own. Go on adventures, fall asleep in the woods with friends, wander around the city at night, sit in a coffee shop on your own, write on bathroom stalls, leave notes in library books, dress up for yourself, give to others, smile a lot. Do all things with love, but don’t romanticize life like you can’t survive without it. Live for yourself and be happy on your own. It isn’t any less beautiful, I promise.

I am not this hair
I am not this skin
I am the soul that lives within.
