Putting things off is the biggest waste of life: it snatches away each day as it comes, and denies us the present by promising the future. The greatest obstacle to living is expectancy, which hangs upon tomorrow and loses today. You are arranging what lies in Fortune’s control, and abandoning what lies in yours. What are you looking at? To what goal are you straining? The whole future lies in uncertainty: live immediately.
“I never wish to be easily defined. I’d rather float over other people’s minds as something strictly fluid and non-perceivable; more like a transparent, paradoxically iridescent creature rather than an actual person.”—Franz Kafka (via iwanderaimlessly)
“Please know that there are much better things in life than being lonely or liked or bitter or mean or self conscious. We are all full of shit. Go love someone just because, I know your heart may be badly bruised, or even the victim of numerous knifings but it will always heal even if you don’t want it to, it keeps going. There are the most fantastic, beautiful things and people out there, I promise. It’s up to you to find them.”—Chuck Palahniuk (via quotediary)
Currently No. 1 in the UK beating out the likes of Pharrell and Ellie Goulding, “Rather Be” is a smooth amalgamation of feeling, a recurring classical melody, and vocals. Nowadays, its hard to find an original tune in this ambiguous “electro plus vocal” realm. With “Rather Be,” Clean Bandit kills it and makes sure there’s no sound you’d rather hear.
“Of course I’ll hurt you. Of course you’ll hurt me. Of course we will hurt each other. But this is the very condition of existence. To become spring, means accepting the risk of winter. To become presence, means accepting the risk of absence.”—Antoine de Saint-Exupéry,The Little Prince (via escepticismos)
For a friend of mine who is hurting right now. Love you.
The beauty of covers are that the cheery R&B style of Gnarls Barkley can be transformed into a heartfelt acoustic song. Daniela Andrade’s uses her wonderful voice to illuminate the sublime beauty of the lyrics. After listening to this I realized that Crazy is about the insanity of life, the people who think they are control but aren’t, and the solace we can find in accepting the world in all of its crazed glory. I love this cover so much.
“I remember when I lost my mind. There was something so pleasant about that place.”
“I’ve been sitting here thinking about all the things I wanted to apologize to you for. All the pain we caused each other, everything I put on you, everything I needed you to be or needed you to say. I’m sorry for that. I’ll always love you because we grew up together. You made me who I am. I just wanted you to know that there will be a piece of you in me always and I’m grateful for that. Whatever someone you become, wherever you are in the world, I’m sending you love.”—Her (via anditslove)
