"Food doesn’t taste better or worse when documented by Instagram. Laughter is as genuine over Skype as it would be sharing a sofa. Pay attention. Take in nature, hold someone’s hand, read a book. But don’t ever apologize for snapping a photo of a sunrise after a hike, or blogging about the excitement of having a crush, or updating your goodreads account. All of these things are good and should be celebrated. Smile at strangers on the sidewalk and like your friends’ selfies. It’s all good for the human spirit."

"Sofrer dói. Dói e não é pouco. Mas faz um bem danado depois que passa."
Caio Fernando Abreu. (via auroriar)


"I’m not fascinated by people who smile all the time. What I find interesting is the way people look when they are lost in thought, when their face becomes angry or serious, when they bite their lip, the way they glance, the way they look down when they walk, when they are alone and smoking a cigarette, when they smirk, the way they half smile, the way they try and hold back tears, the way when their face says they want to say something but can’t, the way they look at someone they want or love… I love the way people look when they do these things. It’s… beautiful."
Clemence Poesy. (via painfulvalley)

"I think it's brilliant."

"It is a lonely feeling when someone you care about becomes a stranger."
— Lemony Snicket, When Did You See Her Last? (via poetrea)

"Eu me sentia viva com aqueles mundos imaginários. Não sei explicar exatamente por que. Eu lia sobre super-heróis e ria por causa da beleza e da feiura de cada pessoa daquele universo fictício. Eu assistia um filme sobre o futuro e a ciência, e chorava por toda a dor que havia ali. Eu ouvia uma história sobre uma vida de aleatoriedades terríveis e maravilhosas, e isso me enchia de admiração.
Às vezes, olhar para a realidade nos faz esquecer que nós não somos os únicos pontos de vista existentes. A vida acontece fora da nossa visão, mas só a ficção parecia me fazer lembrar disso."
