The only real failure in life is not to be true to the best one knows.

—Buddha (via kushandwizdom)

There are times to stay put, and what you want will come to you, and there are times to go out into the world and find such a thing for yourself.

—Lemony Snicket, (via kushandwizdom)

I’m a fighter. I believe in the eye-for-an-eye business. I’m no cheek turner. I got no respect for a man who won’t hit back. You kill my dog, you better hide your cat.

Never say ‘no’ to adventures. Always say ‘yes,’ otherwise you’ll lead a very dull life.

—Ian Fleming (via quotes-shape-us)

Wisdom is like fire. People take it from others.

—African Proverb (via iamcharliesangel)
