"I would rather be ashes than dust!
I would rather that my spark should burn out
    in a brilliant blaze than it should be stifled by dry-rot.
I would rather be a superb meteor, every atom
    of me in magnificent glow, than a sleepy and permanent planet.
The function of man is to live, not to exist.
I shall not waste my days trying to prolong them.
I shall use my time.”

    - Jack London

Give me the complex character.

blogofimpossiblethings:

Give me the complex character. Give me the flawed character. Give me the character who fails, who falls, or who doesn’t try at all. Give me the character all the other characters hate. The one who’s broken, who’s cruel, who’s afraid. Give me the character who drinks too much or thinks too little; who has to fight to succeed if they do succeed in the end. Give me the character who I’d never want to be, and yet who’s the most like me.

47 notes → "Usually we walk around constantly believing ourselves. ‘I’m okay,’ we say. ‘I’m alright.’ But sometimes the truth arrives on you and you can’t get it off. That’s when you realize that sometimes it isn’t even an answer—it’s a question. Even now, I wonder how much of my life is convinced." -Markus Zusak (via pluviam)

And when people try to minimize your pain they are doing you a disservice. And when you try to minimize your own pain you’re doing yourself a disservice. Don’t do that. The truth is that it hurts because it’s real. It hurts because it mattered. And that’s an important thing to acknowledge to yourself. But that doesn’t mean that it won’t end, that it won’t get better. Because it will." -John Green (via venebelle)
