“Do your own thing, wherever you have to do it and whenever you want. Drop out. Leave society as you have known it. Leave it utterly. Blow the mind of every straight person you can reach. Turn them on, if not to drugs, then to beauty, love, honesty, fun.”—Hippie Code
“In Greek, “nostalgia” literally means “the pain from an old wound”. It’s a twinge in your heart, far more powerful than memory alone. This device isn’t a spaceship, it’s a time machine. It goes backwards and forwards, it takes us to a place where we ache to go again.”—Don Draper (via sade) (via junglejustine)
It’s a damn shame when you expect the best out of people and set your standards high (because why would you bother being in a genuine friendship/relationship with someone if it isn’t the creme de la creme, or the cream of the crop, anyway?) only to be disappointed because some people fail to man up and rise to the occasion.
“There are people who deserve you and people who don’t. If you have someone in your life who takes you for granted or doesn’t give you the respect that you deserve, leave them in the past where they belong. Surround yourself with people who challenge your mind and bring out the best in you. As for the ones who only exist to bring you down or cheapen your potential; let them find people who are better-suited to their own qualities and principles. Hold yourself to the highest standard possible. People who don’t measure up don’t deserve your time. People who can’t see past their own cowardice or their own arrogance don’t deserve your time. Anyone who doesn’t treat you the way you treat yourself doesn’t deserve your time. And if you are treating yourself in a way that gives people permission to take advantage of you, start showing yourself the exact same respect that you should be demanding of everyone else.”—
“This is Sammy Davis Jr. Jr… She is Grandfather’s Seeing Eye bitch. Father purchased her for him not because he believes Grandfather is blind, but because a Seeing Eye bitch is also a good thing for people who pine for the opposite of loneliness. In truth, Father did not purchase her at all, but merely retrieved her from the home for forgetful dogs. Because of this, she is not a real Seeing Eye bitch, and is also mentally deranged.”—
when people invade my space and/or use my things without my permission or consent.
I’m guessing this is all due to my having so little while growing up and forming the need to protect what’s “mine” as I was able to acquire more things. But, despite however selfish I may be or come across, I feel it is only common courtesy to mind your own business and not to touch other peoples’ things. I’ve always been one for manners and fiddling and using shit thats not yours without permission shows a definite neglect for personal space and lack of respect. I know this is a pretty miniscule thing compared to the grander picture of life, but life is composed of all the little things, right? I mean if you keep being a rude prick all your life, these little things will add up and will eventually bite you in the ass. It’s only a matter of time. I just don’t understand how people can be so rude.
Besides.. If you’re gonna do this, don’t be dumb enough to get caught and try to smooth talk your way out of it. Just shut up I definitely caught you red handed. I also think its total crap for you to be using my shit when you forbid me to use yours. What kind of double standard world do you think you’re fucking living in where I’m involved? Furthermore, don’t try to talk to me after annoying the living crap out of me and expect me to answer your stupid questions. The only thing I want to do that involves you is back hand your face.
“Love is the free exercise of choice. Two people love each other only when they are quite capable of living without each other but choose to live with each other.”—The road less traveled (M Scott Peck)
