That major that she majored in don’t make no money
But she won’t drop out, her parents will look at her funny
“As I see it, you are living with something that you keep hidden deep inside. Something heavy. I felt it from the first time I met you.

“We’re all strangers connected by what we reveal, what we share, what we take away — our stories. I guess that’s what I love about books.

“I believe that introversion is my greatest strength. I have such a strong inner life that I’m never bored and only occasionally lonely. No matter what mayhem is happening around me, I know I can always turn inward.”
—Susan Cain (via onlinecounsellingcollege)
“Sometimes I lie awake at night, and I ask, ‘Where have I gone wrong’.
Then a voice says to me, ‘This is going to take more than one night.”
—Charles M. Schulz (via observando)
I think of all the people who have touched my life, and wonder if they reserved me a place in their heart just as much as I did to them.
