"Before I can live with other folks I’ve got to live with myself. The one thing that doesn’t abide by majority rule is a person’s conscience."
- Harper Lee, To Kill a Mockingbird (via feellng)
"She moves a goddess, and she looks a queen."
- Homer, The Iliad (Poetic Interpretation by Alexander Pope) (via camilla-macauley)
"For really to think about someone means thinking about that person every minute of the day, without letting one’s thoughts be diverted by anything—by meals, by a fly that settles on one’s cheek, by household duties, or by a sudden itch somewhere. But there are always flies and itches. That’s why life is difficult to live."
- Albert Camus, The Plague (via feellng)
