The greater your capacity to love, the greater your capacity to feel the pain.
Jennifer Aniston (via picsandquotes)
The sense of unhappiness is so much easier to convey than that of happiness. In misery we seem aware of our own existence, even though it may be in the form of a monstrous egotism: this pain of mine is individual, this nerve that winces belongs to me and to no other. But happiness annihilates us: we lose our identity.
Graham Greene, The End of the Affair (via stxxz)
I decided that my existence would be one of books and silence.
Carlos Ruiz Zafón (via stxxz)
Scar tissue is stronger than regular tissue. Realize the strength, move on.
Henry Rollins (via stxxz)
Every time I have a problem, I watch it go up in smokes.
