❝ We are very good at preparing to live, but not very good at living. We know how to sacrifice ten years for a diploma, and we are willing to work very hard to get a job, a car, a house, and so on. But we have difficulty remembering that we are alive in the present moment, the only moment there is for us to be alive. ❞

❝ Stop calling me “someone’s daughter”.
I’m someone.
That should be enough reason not to hurt me. ❞

This is a good idea.

❝ When I’m old and gray, I want to have a house by the sea. And paint. With a lot of wonderful chums, good music, and booze around. And a damn good kitchen to cook in. ❞

I’m not even in high school yet but THIS ^^^

(via believe-you-can-do-anything)

There’s always been something good that results from making art.

Whether you are trained or not, I think every one should at least try to find the medium that’s best for them. 

Immersing in art, expressing yourself in whatever form you choose, is always an escape and I believe it’s therapy like no other. 

A lot of people tend to disregard art, and most see very little of what it can contribute to a person. 

Confiding in art, has always lead me to a level where you can be more in touch with your spirituality. I think it’s one of the best human experience, to encounter it. 

Whether it is in a form of movement, words, strokes, or notes. 

you should go ahead and do it. 

Art is a part of us; after all, we are more than just rational beings and flesh isn’t the only one that thirsts.


Claude Monet, Islet of Nettles; 1897
