The ego says, ‘I shouldn’t have to suffer,’ and that thought makes you suffer so much more. It is a distortion of the truth, which is always paradoxical. The truth is that you need to say yes to suffering before you can transcend it.
 Eckhart Tolle (via purplebuddhaproject)
But I’ve got no more tears or explanations.
Anna Akhmatova, from White Flock (via violentwavesofemotion)
I will no longer mutilate and destroy myself in order to find a secret behind the ruins.
Hermann Hesse, Siddhartha (via larmoyante)
Experience is what you get when you didn’t get what you wanted.
Randy Pausch, The Last Lecture (p. 148)

My happiest hours are those in which I think nothing, want nothing, when I do not even dream, but lose myself in some spurious vegetable torpor, moss growing on the surface of life. Without a trace of bitterness I savour my absurd awareness of being nothing, a mere foretaste of death and extinction.
Fernando Pessoa (via blackestdespondency)
