"The point is, not to resist the flow. You go up when you’re supposed to go up and down when you’re supposed to go down. When you’re supposed to go up, find the highest tower and climb to the top. When you’re supposed to go down, find the deepest well and go down to the bottom. When there’s no flow, stay still. If you resist the flow, everything dries up. If everything dries up, the world is darkness."

haruki murakami

"Why should you worry about the future? You don’t even know the present properly. Take care of the present and the future will take care of itself."

Ramana Maharshi (via larmoyante)

"Hope may be the thing that pulls you forward, may be the thing that keeps you going, but that it’s dangerous, that it’s painful and risky, that it’s making a dare in the world and when has the world ever let us win a dare?"

Patrick Ness, The Knife of Never Letting Go (via quotes-shape-us)
