“Don’t take anything personally. Nothing others do is because of you. What others say and do is a projection of their own reality, their own dream.
When you are immune to the opinions and actions of others, you won’t be the victim of needless suffering.”

“I surrender. I surrender to it all. Even in the midst of broken hearts and new beginnings, love knows no limits, no bounds, no endings. There is so much beauty here on this strange planet, and who would have thought we’d be lucky enough to witness it?”

“Oh well, what the hell, you obviously want to be alone, so I’ll leave you alone. Go ahead and think away to your heart’s content! But don’t get me wrong. I’m not totally mad at you. I’m just sad. You were so nice to me when I was having my problems, but now that you’re having yours, it seems there’s not a thing I can do for you. You’re all locked up in that little world of yours, and when I try knocking on the door, you just sort of look up for a second and go right back inside.”

—   Haruki Murakami, Norwegian Wood (via larmoyante)

“Nostalgia in reverse, the longing for yet another strange land.”

—   Vladimir Nabokov, from Mary (McGraw Hill, 1970, first published in 1926)

“Can the hungry go on a hunger strike? Non-violence is a piece of theatre. You need an audience. What can you do when you have no audience? People have the right to resist annihilation.”

sometimes when I’m angry or stressed or sad I think about whales just swimming around in the ocean, doing whale shit. like, they’re the biggest goddamn mammals on the planet. they don’t have time for little problems. there’s too much chill-ass whale shit to do.
basically what I am saying is that whales are my happy place.
