“I’m a person that has high highs and low lows … A lot of things make me sad. Sometimes it’s almost easier to be sad. But you end up finding a balance and I think that as I get older I am learning what I can do for myself to make me happy.”—Mary-Kate Olsen (via onlinecounsellingcollege)
right now, i’m lost in a transition. the old is dead, and i don’t know what the new is. the only way to find the new is to start different things and see if there’s something that can come out of experimentation. it’s somewhat unsettling, but it’s a hopeful thing in a way. i’ve been here before, lots of times.
“But sometimes we get sad about things and we don’t like to tell other people that we are sad about them. We like to keep it a secret. Or sometimes we are sad but we don’t really know we are sad. So we say we aren’t sad. But really we are.”—Mark Haddon, The Curious Incident of the Dog In the Night-Time (via fushigikid)
“I go through phases. Somedays I feel like the person I’m supposed to be, and then somedays, I turn into no one at all. There is both me and my silhouette. I hope that on the days you find me and all I am are darkened lines, you still are willing to be near me.”—Mary Kate Teske (via fawun)
“Everything she does comes from within, from some dark impulse. I guess that’s what makes her so thrilling to watch. So dangerous. Even perfect at times. But also so damned destructive.”—Black Swan (2010) dir. by Darren Aronofsky (via ohdreaming)
“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 wanduring)
