Only the gentle are ever really strong.
James Dean (via thatkindofwoman)
I thought that maybe if I wrote,
It would remove traces of you from my mind. That perhaps the paper would endure the pain instead
Learning to let go should be learned before learning to get. Life should be touched, not strangled. You’ve got to relax, let it happen at times, and at others move forward with it.
Ray Bradbury (via thatkindofwoman)
Praise be to Him who sends reminders when you forget.
Healing is a choice. It’s not an easy one, because it takes work to turn around your habits, but keep making the choice and shifts will happen.
Yehuda Berg (via thatkindofwoman)
I have naturally formed the habit of restraining my thoughts. A thoughtless word never escaped my tongue or pen. Experience has taught me that silence is part of the spititual discipline of a votary of truth. We find so many people impatient to talk. All this talking can hardly be said to be of any benefit to the world. It is too much waste of time. My shyness has been in reality my shield and buckler. It has allowed me to grow. It has helped me in my discernment of truth.
