If a nation values anything more than freedom, it will lose its freedom; and the irony of it is that if it is comfort or money that it values more, it will lose that too.
— ~ W. Somerset Maugham (via lustymaster)
How slow life is, how violent hope is.
— Guillaume Apollinaire (via likeafieldmouse)
Hard things are put in our way, not to stop us, but to call out our courage and strength.
