[wurd kuh-LEK-ter] noun. - a blog dedicated to collecting words and quotes of all sizes, shapes, and origins.
I have always had a fondness for words and quotes. I have amassed quite the a collection, and I am eager for it to continue growing. I keep quotes everywhere. Jotted in notebooks, typed into my phone, written on my bedroom walls, in word documents on my computer, scribbled away on pieces of paper... This blog is nothing more than my attempt to keep the quotes and words and other musings that I love so much all in one tidy, pretty, little place.
Feel free to share any words or quotes or poems you love by sending me a message (submit box not ask box). Please be sure to share the source of the quote if you know it, so that I don't have to go looking for the proper person to credit. Enjoy!
You’ll need coffee shops and sunsets and road trips. Airplanes and passports and new songs and old songs, but people more than anything else. You will need other people and you will need to be that other person to someone else, a living breathing screaming invitation to believe better things.Jamie Tworkowski (via calmitate)
Being honest may not get you a lot of friends but it’ll always get you the right ones.John Lennon (via despicable-g)
When you know who you are, you don’t look to the world to tell you. Similarly, you don’t fear other people since they cannot take anything from you. Your awareness of yourself as you really are is your liberation.(via despicable-g)
We have to allow ourselves to be loved by the people who really love us, the people who really matter. Too much of the time, we are blinded by our own pursuits of people to love us, people that don’t even matter, while all that time we waste and the people who do love us have to stand on the sidewalk and watch us beg in the streets!
C. JoyBell C.
Most of the world’s problems could be avoided if people just said what they fucking meant.Marilyn Manson (via wethinkwedream)
Mostly, I could tell, I made him feel uncomfortable. He didn’t understand me, and he was sort of holding it against me. I felt the urge to reassure him that I was like everybody else, just like everybody else. But really there wasn’t much point, and I gave up the idea out of laziness.Albert Camus, The Stranger (via c-ovet)
Relax. You will become an adult. You will figure out your career. You will find someone who loves you. You have a whole lifetime; time takes time. The only way to fail at life is to abstain.
Sometimes you climb out of bed in the morning and you think, I’m not going to make it, but you laugh inside — remembering all the times you’ve felt that way.~ Charles Bukowski (via conflictingheart)
Please know there are much better things in life than being lonely or liked or bitter or mean or self-conscious. We are all full of shit. Go love someone just because; I know your heart may be badly bruised, or even the victim of numerous knifings, but it will always heal, even if you don’t want it to; it keeps going. There are the most fantastic, beautiful things and people out there, I promise. It is up to you to find them.Chuck Palahniuk (via hellanne)
George Orwell, 1984
