1. "It was only a sunny smile, and little it cost in the giving, but like morning light it scattered the night and made the day worth living."
    — F. Scott Fitzgerald (via observando)

  2. "He glanced back at the wall. How like a mirror, too, her face. Impossible; for how many people did you know who reflected your own light to you? People were more often—he searched for a simile, found one in his work—torches, blazing away until they whiffed out. How rarely did other people’s faces take of you and throw back to you your own expression, your own innermost trembling thought?"
    — Ray Bradbury, Fahrenheit 451 (via observando)

    So not gonna lie, I wasn’t terribly into Sailor Moon growing up. I occasionally caught an episode or two, only because my brother had a huge weird cartoon crush on her…. Anyway, I ramble. She is pretty fun to draw with all that hair so I thought I’d give this a shot for @Sketch_Dailies. 


  4. To Chloe

    When love shines from your blue,
     bright, open eyes,
     and with the pleasure of gazing into them
     my heart pounds and glows;
     and I hold you and kiss
     your rosy, warm cheeks,
     lovely maiden, and I clasp
     you trembling in my arms,
     maiden, maiden, and I press
     you firmly to my breast,
     which at the last moment,
     only at death, will let you go;
     then my intoxicated gaze is shadowed
     by a gloomy cloud,
     and I sit then, exhausted,
     but blissful, next to you.

  6. "It is not possible to know how far the influence of any amiable, honest-hearted duty-doing man flies out into the world, but it is very possible to know how it has touched one’s self in going by."
    — Charles Dickens (via observando)

  7. "The pursuit of happiness is a most ridiculous phrase; if you pursue happiness you’ll never find it."

  9. "

    Josh had told me a long time ago that he had this theory that an entire relationship was based on what occurred over the course of the first five minutes you know each other. That everything that came after those first minutes was just details being filled in. Meaning: you already knew how deep the love was, how instinctually you felt about someone.

    What happened in their first five minutes?

    Time stopped.

  13. "Put flowers on the table, open a window, and let the sun in. Smile to a small child, listen to the presence of nature, and be still."

  14. You’re not alone. Don’t let yourself get lonely. Just because no ones here, doesn’t mean you’re alone. Don’t isolate yourself. Go out. Do it yourself. Push yourself. You don’t need people to be in good company.
