I will learn to love the skies I'm under



I'm a Christ lover, tea drinker, sushi aficionado, indian/thai/chinese/ japanese food eater, humor interjector, video editor, laugher, movie lover, web designer, watercolor dabbler, british comedy enthusiast, doodler, nature appreciator, fantasy/memoir/comic reader, deep conversationalist, dreamer, music jammer, wannabe traveler.
This tumblr is just a result of the fact I'm a hoarder of pretty and funny things I find on the internet. In terms of entertainment it is usually Castle, BBC's Sherlock, Game of Thrones, Mad Men, and movies.
And, if you're lucky, there may be original thoughts or photographs.

Life is pure adventure, and the sooner we realize that, the quicker we will be able to treat life as art.

—Maya Angelou

Only those who will risk going too far can possibly find out how far one can go.

—T.S. Eliot

Life can only be understood backwards; but it must be lived forwards.

—Søren Kierkegaard

Unbeing dead isn’t being alive.

—E.E. Cummings

I’ve wondered, though, if one of the reasons we fail to acknowledge the brilliance of life is because we don’t want the responsibility inherent in the acknowledgment. We don’t want to be characters in a story because characters have to move and breathe and face conflict with courage. And if life isn’t remarkable, then we don’t have to do any of that; we can be unwilling victims instead of grateful participants.

—Donald Miller, A Million Miles in a Thousand Years: What I Learned While Editing My Life

I may not have gone where I intended to go, but I think I have ended up where I needed to be.

—Douglas Adams, The Long Dark Tea-Time of the Soul

These woods are lovely, dark and deep,
But I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep,
And miles to go before I sleep.

—Robert Frost

Don’t part with your illusions. When they are gone you may still exist, but you have ceased to live.

—Mark Twain

To do the useful thing, to say the courageous thing, to contemplate the beautiful thing: that is enough for one man’s life.

—T.S. Eliot, The Use of Poetry and the Use of Criticism

Be not the slave of your own past - plunge into the sublime seas, dive deep, and swim far, so you shall come back with new self-respect, with new power, and with an advanced experience that shall explain and overlook the old.

—Ralph Waldo Emerson  (via a-woman-determined)

As a single footstep will not make a path on the earth, so a single thought will not make a pathway in the mind. To make a deep physical path, we walk again and again. To make a deep mental path, we must think over and over the kind of thoughts we wish to dominate our lives.

—Henry David Thoreau (via alighthouseofwords)
