A great book should leave you with many experiences, and slightly exhausted at the end. You live several lives while reading.

Relief: That feeling of a weight being lifted off your shoulders—a weight you didn’t truly realize how much was pushing you further into the ground. That feeling of being on the same page as someone else so that you don’t have to be scared of your own self. Of knowing that at least you’ve got one less worry and one more supporter on your hike and a half that is progress. 

You shouldn’t try to stop everything from happening. Sometimes you’re supposed to feel awkward. Sometimes you’re supposed to be vulnerable in front of people. Sometimes it’s necessary because it’s all part of you getting to the next part of yourself.

Cecelia Ahern, The Book of Tomorrow (via simply-quotes)

My favorite thing about the Doctor after he regenerates is when he makes fun of himself.

Yes, Twelve. Those ARE quite the eyebrows.

I’m Scottish. I can complain about things. Give me your coat, I’m cold.

People need to be encouraged. People need to be reminded of how wonderful they are. People need to be believed in—told that they are brave and smart and capable of accomplishing all the dreams they dream and more. Remind each other of this.

I’ve learned a lot this year.. I learned that things don’t always turn our the way you planned, or the way you think they should. And I’ve learned that there are things that go wrong that don’t always get fixed or get put back together the way they were before. I’ve learned that some broken things stay broken, and I’ve learned that you can get through bad times and keep looking for better ones, as long as you have people who love you.
