Jean-Luc Godard (via 13neighbors)
"People empty me. I have to get away to refill."
Charles Bukowski (via uglypoem)

"Many people - no matter what they may say or how they may conduct themselves - really don’t feel very good about themselves. They feel inadequate, like failures and rejects most of the time."
Kevin Leeman (via onlinecounsellingcollege)
"Most things about me are hard to explain, I guess, like how I’m mostly delusional and live in a half-imaginary world but am also a realist to the core. I’m just a bunch of contradictions most of the time and I don’t like it, but I also do."
Marianna Paige (via theselittlewondersstillremain)
"Things get bad for all of us, almost continually, and what we do under the constant stress reveals who/what we are."
Charles Bukowski, What Matters Most is How Well You Walk Through the Fire (via teddybearinsoul)
"I am aware that I am less than some people prefer me to be, but most people are unaware that I am so much more than what they see."
Douglas Pagels (via theselittlewondersstillremain)
"My main goal is to stay alive. To keep fooling myself into hanging around. To keep getting up every day. Right now I live without inspiration. I go day to day and do the work because it’s all I know. I know that if I keep moving I stand a chance. I must keep myself going until I find a reason to live. I need one so bad. On the other hand maybe I don’t. Maybe it’s all bullshit. Nothing I knew from my old life can help me here. Most of the things that I believed turned out to be useless. Appendages from someone else’s life.
Everything I have I would give to not know what I know. To not feel emptiness as my constant companion. To not look into this room and be reminded why I’m in it. I’m not getting enough air. The room feels so small all of a sudden. It’s pathetic to be this lonely and know it. To keep breathing. To be silent and alone. And to know."
Henry Rollins - Roomanitarian (via requiemforthepast)
"As an atheist, I see nothing “wrong” in believing in a god. I don’t think there is a god, but belief in him does no harm. If it helps you in any way, then that’s fine with me. It’s when belief starts infringing on other people’s rights when it worries me. I would never deny your right to believe in a god. I would just rather you didn’t kill people who believe in a different god, say. Or stone someone to death because your rulebook says their sexuality is immoral. It’s strange that anyone who believes that an all-powerful all-knowing, omniscient power responsible for everything that happens, would also want to judge and punish people for what they are."
Ricky Gervais (via theselittlewondersstillremain)
"When you feel perpetually unmotivated, you start questioning your existence in an unhealthy way; everything becomes a pseudo intellectual question you have no interest in responding whatsoever. This whole process becomes your very skin and it does not merely affect you; it actually defines you. So, you see yourself as a shadowy figure unworthy of developing interest, unworthy of wondering about the world - profoundly unworthy in every sense and deeply absent in your very presence."
Ingmar Bergman (via tat-art)
