“If you’re feeling frightened about what comes next, don’t be. Embrace the uncertainty. Allow it to lead you places. Be brave as it challenges you to exercise both your heart and your mind as you create your own path towards happiness, don’t waste time with regret. Spin wildly into your next action. Enjoy the present, each moment, as it comes; because you’ll never get another one quite like it. And if you should ever look up and find yourself lost, simply take a breath and start over. Retrace your steps and go back to the purest place in your heart… where your hope lives. You’ll find your way again.” —Everwood (via julie911)

“It’s not just about the knowledge that you’re importing. It’s also about the flow of the words and use of the language. There’s a beauty in it. There’s an art in it.” — Patrick Pfeiffer on writing books (via unendingvoyage)
