“Experience shows that success is due less to ability than to zeal. The winner is he who gives himself to his work, body and soul.”

Charles Buxton

“It’s a person’s imperfections that make them perfect for someone else.”

Stephanie Perkins, Lola and the Boy Next Door (via simply-quotes)

“Life is hard. Life hurts. So what? You tough it out. You get through and then you’ll feel good again.”

Sue Grafton, D is for Deadbeat (via simply-quotes)

“I no longer have patience for certain things, not because I’ve become arrogant, but simply because I reached a point in my life where I do not want to waste more time with what displeases me or hurts me. I have no patience for cynicism, excessive criticism and demands of any nature. I lost the will to please those who do not like me, to love those who do not love me and to smile at those who do not want to smile at me. I no longer spend a single minute on those who lie or want to manipulate. I decided not to coexist anymore with pretense, hypocrisy, dishonesty and cheap praise. I do not tolerate selective erudition nor academic arrogance. I do not adjust either to popular gossiping. I hate conflict and comparisons. I believe in a world of opposites and that’s why I avoid people with rigid and inflexible personalities. In friendship I dislike the lack of loyalty and betrayal. I do not get along with those who do not know how to give a compliment or a word of encouragement. Exaggerations bore me and I have difficulty accepting those who do not like animals. And on top of everything I have no patience for anyone who does not deserve my patience.”

Meryl Streep (via maddierose)

The world has a valuable lesson to learn from this exquisite woman.

“Yet you still value the things you’ve lost the most. Because the things you’ve lost are still perfect in your head. They never rusted. They never broke. They are made of the memories you once had, which only grow rosier and brighter, day by day. They are made of the dreams of how wonderful things could have been and must never suffer the indignity of actually still existing. Of being real. Of having flaws. Of breaking and deteriorating. Only the things you no longer have will always be perfect.”

Iain Thomas, I Wrote This For You (via requiemforthepast)
