"Here’s the idea. Sometimes life is light. Sometimes it’s terribly heavy. The mixture of the two, our humanity, and the compassion of those around us makes it bearable. Beautiful even. You are not alone."
— Sophia Bush (via playingbackathousandmemories)
"Albert Camus once wrote “Blessed are the hearts that can bend; they shall never be broken.” But I wonder if there’s no breaking then there’s no healing, and if there’s no healing then there’s no learning. And if there’s no learning then there’s no struggle. But struggle is a part of life. So must all hearts be broken?"
— Lucas Scott. (via miss-andrea)
"Do I wish I was doing better? Yeah, but I’m not alone in that. A lot of people are struggling right now. All I can do is keep trying, you know? Get up, work hard, pay the bills - hope for something better. I think there’s nobility in that."

We all want to be loved…to be happy. So why aren’t we? Because we’ve become experts at sabotaging our own happiness. Feeling like victims, when in fact it’s the choices we make, the bad habits, the vices, the inability to show love and compassion. These are the things that tear us down. We’re not victims. We’re assassins when it comes to love and happiness. - One tree hill
"Realize now that when your heart breaks, you got to fight like hell to make sure your still alive. Because you are. And that pain you feel? That’s life. The confusion and fear? That’s there to remind you, that somewhere out there is something better, and that something is worth fighting for."
