I can’t think of anything but nights with you. I want them warm and silvery, when we can be together all our lives.Zelda Fitzgerald to Scott Fitzgerald, 1919 (via moncheriiee)
I was the shyest human ever invented, but I had a lion inside me that wouldn’t shut up.
~ Ingrid Bergman
I keep reading about all of these movies coming out and quotes from people saying, “We don’t take off our clothes — we’re classy. It’s like burlesque without the strip.” And I’m like what are you talking about? There is no burlesque without the strip. The trick is can you be classy, sophisticated, elegant AND take off your clothes? Every man wants to be with the American pinup. I want to be her. ▬ Dita Von Teese.
If people are sending out negative energy and not meeting your expectations, it is important to send them unconditional love. They are simply being themselves, doing the best they know how. You will find great inner peace when you do not need others to act in a certain way to be happy yourself. When you send someone unconditional love, it is no longer possible for you to be harmed by his or her negative energy.Orin (via slychedelic)
In many shamanic societies, if you came to a medicine person complaining of being disheartened, dispirited, or depressed, they would ask one of four questions. When did you stop dancing? When did you stop singing? When did you stop being enchanted by stories? When did you stop finding comfort in the sweet territory of silence?Gabrielle Rothou (via lucifelle)
When you sit in a café, with a lot of music in the background and a lot of projects in your head, you’re not really drinking your coffee or your tea. You’re drinking your projects, you’re drinking your worries. You are not real, and the coffee is not real either. Your coffee can only reveal itself to you as a reality when you go back to your self and produce your true presence, freeing yourself from the past, the future, and from your worries. When you are real, the tea also becomes real and the encounter between you and the tea is real. This is genuine tea drinking.Thich Nhat Hanh (via hippiewitch)
