You still have a lot of time to make yourself be what you want.
S.E. Hinton, The Outsiders  (via thenocturnals)

beccaliving:

Just a reminder that tattoos don’t have to mean anything. They do not require some intricate and moving backstory. Some people just appreciate having art on their skin…it’s as simple as that.

I remember it as October days are always remembered, cloudless, maple-flavored, the air gold and so clean it quivers.
― Leif Enger, Peace Like a River  (via budddha)
Every atom in your body came from a star that exploded. And, the atoms in your left hand probably came from a different star than your right hand. It really is the most poetic thing I know about physics: You are all stardust. You couldn’t be here if stars hadn’t exploded, because the elements - the carbon, nitrogen, oxygen, iron, all the things that matter for evolution and for life - weren’t created at the beginning of time. They were created in the nuclear furnaces of stars, and the only way for them to get into your body is if those stars were kind enough to explode…The stars died so that you could be here today.
― Lawrence M. Krauss (via wordsnquotes)
