"Never ruin an apology with an excuse."
"It’s a funny thing about coming home. Looks the same, smells the same, feels the same. You’ll realize what’s changed is you."
F. Scott Fitzgerald, “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button” (via jessicachu)
"The fact that you have a fancy college degree doesn’t mean you have to immediately use it.
The fact that you’re blue-haired and tattooed and pierced doesn’t mean that you’ll never be able to get a job.
Managing to make it through college does not validate you as a human being.
Forcing yourself to waste away in the one thing you believe you’re good at does not make for a full and happy life.
You don’t have to fit a mold.
You don’t need another person to complete you.
You don’t need dates and parties and wild nights at the bar to prove to everyone that you’re worth being around.
You don’t need someone to hold your hand every moment of every day.
And you don’t need to spend your time and energy obsessing over these things.
Because, at the end of the day, you are the one who has to live with the person you are. If you are proud of what you’re doing with your life, nothing should stop you from carrying on.
You are not obligated to meet anyone’s standards, ever.
Find happiness. Keep it.
And don’t let anyone ever tell you that what you’re doing isn’t good enough.
Because it is. It really is."
this pretty much sums up the book/movie

"When you do something noble and beautiful and nobody notices, do not be sad. For the sun every morning is a beautiful spectacle and yet most of the audience still sleeps."
