The state of things makes my soul tired.
Here’s some real & beautiful things.
For the days when its hard to find any.

Don’t pull hatefulness close to your heart. Let whats unproductive and hurtful drop at the feet of your unarmored self.
— Brené Brown
Love and trust, in the space between what’s said and what’s heard in our life, can make all the difference in this world.
— Fred Rogers
All that is gold does not glitter,
Not all those who wander are lost;
The old that is strong does not wither,
Deep roots are not reached by the frost.
— J.R.R Tolkien
The individual has always had to struggle to keep from being overwhelmed by the tribe. If you try it, you will be lonely often, and sometimes frightened. But no price is too high to pay for the privilege of owning yourself.
— Friedrich Nietzsche
I opened myself to the gentle indifference of the world. 
— Albert Camus
Nothing can cure the soul but the senses, just as nothing can cure the senses but the soul.
— Oscar Wilde
The truth is rarely pure and never simple.
— Oscar Wilde
Never be a spectator of unfairness or stupidity. Suspect your own motives, and all excuses. Do not live for others any more than you would expect others to live for you.
— Christopher Hitchens
You’re never finished.
— Betty Friedan
It doesn’t happen all at once, you become. It takes a long time. That’s why it doesn’t happen often to people who break easily, or have sharp edges, or who have to be carefully kept. Generally, by the time you are Real, most of your hair has been loved off, and your eyes drop out and you get loose in the joints and very shabby. But these things don’t matter at all, because once you are Real you can’t be ugly, except to people who don’t understand.
