And here’s the “kicker”:
A week before Lincoln was shot, he was in Monroe, Maryland.

I WILL NEVER CEASE TO REBLOG THIS
Nineteen things I’ve learned before I turned nineteen. 1. Always carry $5 and a lighter with you (even if you don’t smoke). 2. Ask every person you meet how their day is going. Genuinely ask with the soul intention of learning how their day is. Ask the coffee shop employee. Ask the person next to you in line at Walmart. Ask your distant friend. Ask everyone. 3. Take many photos of yourself. Take photos of yourself when you’re happy. Take photos of yourself when you’re sad. Take photos of yourself because there are millions of trees in the world, and we all look at the same sky, but there is only one of you. 4. Stay in contact with your parents. Try not to hate them. They are the reason you have the ability to feel anything at all. Try not to hate your parents. 5. Opening your skin will not set your demons free. Open your heart. Open your mind. Open your hands. 6. Nobody knows anybody completely. That’s okay. 7. Be gentle, but be aggressive. Take a stand. Nobody hears your voice if you stay silent. 8. Respect everybody. We are all humans trying to survive. We all deserve respect. 9. Wearing black will ALWAYS make you feel better about yourself. 10. Always give tips, whether it be a couple extra dollars or a piece of mind. You never know how much you could be helping someone. 11. Change is the only thing consistent in life. Do not allow that bother you. Embrace chance and move with life, whichever direction it chooses to take you. 12. Smile often. Smile at strangers. Smile at your friends. Smile when nobody is looking and you’re alone in your bedroom. Smile when somebody is rambling to you. 13. Body image means nothing. Your body is merely just a seatbelt in the car. Your body is here to protect you. You choose the direction you go, and your body will not hold you back. Only you can hold yourself back. 14. Don’t hold grudges. Don’t allow yourself to hate anybody. Forgive them. Learn to love them for the person you never got to see them to be. Believe that a beautiful human exists in that person. Wish them well. 15. Drink orange juice. Lot’s of it. 16. Don’t allow the opinions of others to choose your destiny. We are all simply trying to live our own life. 17. Sing all the time. Sing off key. Sing in a silly voice. Sing like you’re on stage. Sing no matter who is around. Singing is breathing for the soul. Sing. 18. Take time to think. Write your feelings down. Write letters to the people you love. Texting is overrated and not as heartfelt as a nice handwritten letter. 19. Live for yourself. Breathe for yourself. Do everything in your life for nobody but you. This is your life. This is it.” –
If a person has ugly thoughts, it begins to show on the face. And when that person has ugly thoughts every day, every week, every year, the face gets uglier and uglier until you can hardly bear to look at it.
A person who has good thoughts cannot ever be ugly. You can have a wonky nose and a crooked mouth and a double chin and stick-out teeth, but if you have good thoughts it will shine out of your face like sunbeams and you will always look lovely.” – Roald Dahl, The Twits (via starfetti)
not with someone, is perhaps
the most intimate you will
ever be with another human.
In sleep, we are completely
defenseless. We are soft
and supple and childlike.
Our hard exteriors falls away
when the sand hits our eyes.
The way you sleep, with your
face softened and your arms
wrapped around my waist,
is the most beautiful thing
I have ever seen. I am not an
artist, but I may become one
just so that I can capture that
moment.” – I Miss Sleeping Next To You. (via frauneu)
