“I understand the impulse: the impulse to want to put out your hand and want someone to be there at the end of your reach. To want someone to be close to. To want to kiss or touch, even if it’s wrong. The point is, you can’t control these feelings. Even if they’re wrong, they’re still there.”—Dawson’s Creek (via quotewhore)
“I fell in love with her courage, her sincerity, and her flaming self respect. And it’s these things I’d believe in, even if the whole world indulged in wild suspicions that she wasn’t all she should be. I love her and it is the beginning of everything.”—F. Scott Fitzgerald (via quotewhore)
I don’t want to live a quiet life. I don’t want to live a simple life. I want to travel and breathe the air that others are yet to breathe, love recklessly, fight tirelessly, live passionately. I want to look back knowing that the words I have said to people meant everything, that my thoughts are sincere and my heart honest. I’ll conquer my fears and my demons but not before contemplating their reason and complexity, simply to learn from my mistakes and better myself from the experience. I’ll live with no limit; laugh harder, stand stronger, love more tenderly. There is no restriction. Tomorrow is opportunity, yesterday will become a lesson in a history book and I’ll learn when to close it. I’ll fight for those who have touched my heart and farewell the ones that compromised my ability. My courage will become my strength and my determination will remove my blinkers and let me see a world that is beautiful.
Absolutely stoked. What an incredible last quarter. Dawes, Didak and Swan all shining through with the shining stars of Hawthorn fumbling.
3 point win to Collingwood to push them through to the Grand Final.
Listening to the boys sing the club song and then off to to bed.. Was worth staying up until 5.30am to hear it.
That’s the team I know and love.
