"If you hate your parents, the man, or the establishment, don’t show them up by getting wasted and wrapping your car around a tree. If you really want to rebel against your parents: outlearn them, outlive them, and know more than they do."
"Always be yourself. Express yourself, have faith in yourself. Don’t go looking for a successful personality and just duplicate it."
"I wish more people cared about the earth as much as they cared about who they believed created it."
"I’m like a book you have to read. A book can’t read itself to you. It doesn’t even know what it’s about."
George, A Single Man by Christopher Isherwood (via literaryquotations)
"We’re born alone, we die alone. And while we’re here, we’re absolutely, completely sealed in our own bodies…it kind of freaks me out to think about it. We can only experience the outside world through our own slanted perception of it. Who knows what you are really like? I just see what I think you’re like."
"I always marvel at the humans’ ability to keep going. They always manage to stagger on even with tears streaming down their faces."
