Boredom is the fear of sitting in silence and being comfortable with it.
Rakishi, “things my father wouldn’t say.” cir. 1940 (via 1924us)
I have counseled many young men to break up with the woman they were dating because they had made her their life. She was the sun of his universe, around which he orbited. A man needs a much bigger orbit than a woman. He needs a mission, a life purpose, and needs to know his name. Only then is he fit for a woman, for only then does he have something to invite her into.
John Eldredge, Wild At Heart (via srtrf)
If you are to die, realize that your life was a victory, and though you have lost, you first gained.
Rakishi, “things my father said.” cir. 1944. (via 1924us)
I’m just tired; I just want the world to be quiet for a bit.
