“I am speaking with a mouth full of words that do not belong
to me I crawl across the page and I don’t know if I’m dying or dead.”

“I am learning peacefulness, lying by myself quietly
As the light lies on these white walls, this bed, these hands.
I am nobody; I have nothing to do with explosions.”

—   Sylvia Plath, from Tulips (via violentwavesofemotion)

“You may not control all the events that happen to you, but you can decide not to be reduced by them. Do not complain. Make every effort to change things you do not like. If you cannot make a change, change the way you have been thinking.”

—   Maya Angelou, from Letter To My Daughter (via violentwavesofemotion)
