“Try to imagine a life without timekeeping. You probably can’t. You know the month, the year, the day of the week. There is a clock on your wall or the dashboard of your car. You have a schedule, a calendar, a time for dinner or a movie. Yet all around you, timekeeping is ignored. Birds are not late. A dog does not check its watch. Deer do not fret over passing birthdays. an alone measures time. Man alone chimes the hour. And, because of this, man alone suffers a paralyzing fear that no other creature endures. A fear of time running out.”
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.
From the ashes a fire shall be woken,
A light from the shadows shall spring;
Renewed shall be blade that was broken,
The crownless again shall be king.
Either you want me around or you don’t. I have no time to stick around for people who are unsure of my worth. If you miss me, you should’ve known better than to let me leave. -absentions (via absentions)
He was the only person I ever met whose soul I could clearly see in his eyes. And I had more faith in him than I’ve ever had in another human being. -Beth Harbison, Always Something There to Remind Me (via cigareht)
