"Dissatisfaction. Uneasiness. A constant state of dysphoria. Neither happy, nor sad, just unvarying anxiety. About what you might ask. Well, nothing in particular. It’s quaint really, the thought of being trapped in your skin, forsaken in your mind, and uninhabited in your heart. Nothingness consumes your being in a yearning for a remedy but a remedy is what we cannot a find and that remedy is happiness"
"There are times when it will go so wrong that you will barely be alive, and times when you realise that being barely alive, on your own terms, is better than living a bloated half-life on someone else’s terms."
~ Jeanette Winterson, Why Be Happy When You Could Be Normal? (via feellng)
"There is a pleasure in the pathless woods,
There is a rapture on the lonely shore,
There is society, where none intrudes,
By the deep sea, and music in its roar:
I love not man the less, but Nature more."
