I am tired of trying to hold things together that cannot be held. Trying to control what cannot be controlled. I am tired of denying myself what I want for fear of breaking things I cannot fix. They will break no matter what we do.Erin Morgenstern, The Night Circus (via imagesofinnocence)
Philosophy has no end in view save truth; faith looks for nothing but obedience.Baruch Spinoza, b. 1632; from Tractatus Theologico-Politicus (via whats-out-there)
It’s unnerving how quickly I can go from feeling like I have everything under control to feeling so stressed out that I can’t even handle my thoughts, and then back again. It’s a constant game of tug of war.
