There is no exquisite beauty without some strangeness in the proportion. Edgar Allen Poe (via tiredofbeingsexy)
β€œTo get the full value of joy you must have someone to divide it with.”
― Mark Twain
To laugh often and much; To win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children; To earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends; To appreciate beauty, to find the best in others; To leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch, or a redeemed social condition; To know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded. — Ralph Waldo Emerson (via themixedtape-cm)
