“The reason people find it so hard to be happy is that they always see the past better than it was, the present worse than it is, and the future less resolved than it will be.”—(via katttbt) (via thelatestresearch)
“Comedy is a dangerous business. If people find something funny you’re okay. But the moment you do something that’s meant to be funny and someone doesn’t find it funny, they become angry. It’s almost as if they resent the fact that you tried to make them laugh and failed. Nobody comes out of a mediocre performance of Hamlet seething with rage because it didn’t make them cry. But just listen to people coming out of a comedy that didn’t make them laugh.”—Terry Jones (via najmetender) (via g33ky)
Tumblr’s far too saturated with writings about love and about being different.
About it’s all so painful to “love someone who doesn’t love you”. About how you should be different.
About how nudity is sensuality. About how you should surrender yourself to love. About how love is irrational and that you should follow your heart. About how it’s so fucking difficult to let go of someone.
“'one felt as if there was an enormous well behind them, filled up with ages of memory and long, slow, steady thinking; but their surface was sparkling with the present; like sun shimmering on the outer leaves of a vast tree, or the ripples of a very deep lake. i don't know, but it felt as if something that grew in the ground -asleep you might say, or just feeling itself as something between root-tip and leaf-tip, between deep earth and sky had suddenly waked up, and was considering you with the same slow care it had given to its own inside affairs for endless years.'”—Lotr
christmas day was as great as it can be without my brother here. i miss him! i got everything i asked for..oh wait..thats cause i picked it out XD. i feel like i can’t get anything else for another year haha. i saw avatar which my dad has been stoked for for forever. it was excellent. probably my new favorite movie. i wish people could live that way, so spiritually inclined. mmagjdfad;a.
things dont seem to be going as planned though. i hope new years doesn’t suck because it would be hard to live up to last year. the way some things have played out so far though, it may not be the best thing ever. we’ll see i guess! a lot happened this year. but i’ll talk about that when i can look back when next year is today.
reading all of lotr is taking forever! i wonder at myself if maybe my attention span has changed as opposed to,maybe, i haven’t found a book thats grabbed my attention in a few years. either way, i’m finding it hard to sit down for hours upon hours and read :O
