"When a man is getting better he understands more and more clearly the evil that is still left in him. When a man is getting worse he understands his own badness less and less. A moderately bad man knows he is not very good: a thoroughly bad man thinks he is all right. This is common sense, really. You understand sleep when you are awake, not while you are sleeping. You can see mistakes in arithmetic when your mind is working properly: while you are making them you cannot see them. You can understand the nature of drunkenness when you are sober, not when you are drunk. Good people know about both good and evil: bad people do not know about either."
C.S Lewis from Mere Christianity
"Some want to live within the sound of church or chapel bell; I want to run a rescue shop within a yard of hell."
"Every man has his secret sorrows which the world knows not; and often times we call a man cold when he is only sad."
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow (via thatkindofwoman)
"I wanna have friends that I can trust, that love me for the man I’ve become not the man I was."
The Avett Brothers // The Perfect Space (via eugcho)
"If there’s no one beside you when your soul embarks, then I’ll follow you into the dark."
I just want to be a reflection of You.
"There are some people who could hear you speak a thousand words, and still not understand you. And there are others who will understand — without you even speaking a word."
Yasmin Mogahed (via wanduring)
