From quiet homes and first beginning,
Out to the undiscovered ends,
There’s nothing worth the wear of winning,
But laughter and the love of friends.

Addiction is an effect on human unhappiness and human suffering. When people are distressed they want to soothe their distress, when people are in pain they want to soothe their pain. So the real question is not why the addiction, but why the pain?

Most people think happiness is about gaining something, but it’s not. It’s all about getting rid of the darkness you accumulate.

People sometimes forget that we are the fruit of what we live through in our childhood and our adolescence; we are the product of many moments, and sometimes we close the door to them when we should have it always open.

I have sculpted your body from the dust on the doorknob.
I hoarded your name in my mouth for months.
I’ve been saving so many words for you.
My throat is a beehive pitched into the river. Look!
Look how long my love can hold its breath.

Sierra DeMulder, from "Your Love Finds Its Way Back" (via weissewiese)

your life is your life
don’t let it be clubbed into dank submission.
be on the watch.
there are ways out.
there is a light somewhere.
it may not be much light but
it beats the darkness.
be on the watch.
the gods will offer you chances.
know them.
take them.
you can’t beat death but
you can beat death in life, sometimes.
and the more often you learn to do it,
the more light there will be.
your life is your life.
know it while you have it.
you are marvelous
the gods wait to delight
in you.

Charles Bukowski, “The Laughing Heart” (via wordsnquotes)
