Only You Can Write Your Story

Leah.17.NYC.
Life is good. Don't let other people or challenges digress you. Only you can write your story, make it worth reading.

“You will walk differently alone, dear, through a thicker atmosphere, forcing your way through the shadows of chairs, through the dripping smoke of the funnels. You will feel your own reflection sliding along the eyes of those who look at you. You are no longer insulated; but I suppose you must touch life in order to spring from it.”

 F. Scott Fitzgerald, Tender Is the Night (via wordsnquotes)

“Writing isn’t about making money, getting famous, getting dates, getting laid, or making friends. In the end it’s about enriching the lives of those who will read your work, and enriching your own life as well. It’s about getting up, getting well, and getting over. Getting happy, okay? Getting happy. …this book…is a permission slip: you can, you should, and if you’re brave enough to start, you will. Writing is magic, as much the water of life as any other creative art. The water is free.
So drink.
Drink and be filled up.”

Stephen King, On Writing: A Memoir of the Craft (via wordsnquotes)

booksquoteslove:

it’s so hard to choose one favorite book, but i’ve narrowed it down to:

White Oleander by Janet Fitch
Those Who Save Us by Jenna Blum
Pride and Prejudice and Emma by Jane Austen
The Chaperone by Laura Moriarity
and i shamelessly love the all of the Tortall books by Tamora Pierce

my (current) favorite quote is:

“We wear clothes, and speak, and create civilizations, and believe we are more than wolves. But inside us there is a word we cannot pronounce and that is who we are.” ― Anthony Marra, A Constellation of Vital Phenomena

“I missed you every hour. And you know what the worst part was? It caught me completely by surprise. I’d catch myself just walking around to find you, not for any reason, just out of habit, because I’d seen something that I wanted to tell you about or because I wanted to hear your voice. And then I’d realize that you weren’t there anymore, and every time, every single time, it was like having the wind knocked out of me.”
