No one has ever made himself great by showing how small someone else is.
We’re adults, but, like…adult cats. Someone should probably take care of us, but we can sort of make it on our own.
― my roommate, on the question “are we adults” (via disjunct)
Don’t you dare, for one more second, surround yourself with people who are not aware of the greatness that you are.
What’s terrible is to pretend that second-rate is first-rate. To pretend that you don’t need love when you do; or you like your work when you know quite well you’re capable of better.
― Doris Lessing, The Golden Notebook (via feellng)
