“There are a few moments in your life when you are truly and completely happy, and you remember to give thanks. Even as it happens you are nostalgic for the moment, you are tucking it away in your scrapbook.”—David Benioff, When the Nines Roll Over (via simply-quotes)
“Every second that you spend on doubting your worth, every moment that you use to criticize yourself; is a second of your life wasted, is a moment of your life thrown away. It’s not like you have forever, so don’t waste any of your seconds, don’t throw even one of your moments away.”—C. Joybell C. Kristen Rosenau | Pastry Affair
“I’m afraid of time… I mean, I’m afraid of not having enough time. Not enough time to understand people, how they really are, or to be understood myself. I’m afraid of the quick judgements or mistakes everybody makes. You can’t fix them without time. I’m afraid of seeing snapshots, not movies.”—Ann Brashares (via uglypnis)
“Whatever you choose, however many roads you travel, I hope that you choose not to be a lady. I hope you will find some way to break the rules and make a little trouble out there. And I also hope that you will choose to make some of that trouble on behalf of women.”—Nora Ephron
“I imagine you working on me as an algebra problem, reducing me to fractions, crossing out common denominators, until there’s nothing left on the page but a line that says x = whatever it is that is wrong with me.”—Patricia McCormick, Cut (via quoted-books)
“One day it’s 12:27 am, and you’re sad. Not because of how life is treating you or anything, it’s just because you want someone next to you. Someone who at the end of the day will look at you and smile, asking what you want to have for dinner. You’ll realize that you are longing for love, a comfortable and simple love, one that gives you a reason to shut off the computer, and just have a conversation. You want a companion who will be there, who will be willing to give you space, and who will also keep you close. It’s hard, because as you think, the clock slowly turns to 12:30am, and you are just tired of trying, and you just want it to happen. But it will, and you’ll look back at these late nights, and smile; wishing you could tell your single self that it’s going to be okay, that all the “no’s” were leading you to a beautiful yes. So, as it gets later, you just need to remember that your sadness will be replaced with an overwhelming gratitude that you are loved; and that will be better than all the missed opportunities, and made up dreams that you had.”—T.B. LaBerge // It’s 12:34 am and I’m a little sad (via tblaberge)
“For someone who was never meant for this world, I must confess I’m suddenly having a hard time leaving it. Of course, they say every atom in our bodies was once part of a star. Maybe I’m not leaving… maybe I’m going home.”—Gattaca 
what would you do if you have to decide between what your parents want for you and what you want for your future? I'm scared because they are more mature than I am, so maybe what they want is the best for me.
I was in this position once. I wanted to go to uni, my parents didn’t really see the point. I did it anyway. They thought I should pick a different course. Studied what I wanted to anyway. Luckily they were supportive once I made my mind up. I spent the next three years making amazing memories, doing some crazy crazy shit, finding the best friends I’ll ever have (practically sisters), and I learned a few things along the way too.
I was talking to my cousin about uni a few months back and she was saying that the whole family has said it brought me out of my shell, and couldn’t have done more for me as a person. That’s not saying it wasn’t incredibly tough at times. Some of the hardest things that ever happened to me happened there, but following my own ambitions changed my life. I’m honestly not saying everything always worked out or that I always ended up where I wanted to be, or that I didn’t almost back out a few times, but I’m glad I can say (cue Frank Sinatra) I did it my way.
The thing is, i know my parents had my back if it didn’t work out. I wasn’t doing something they found offensive or hurtful to who they are so that helped. The same as your parent I know they wanted what they thought was best for me, but I wanted what was best for me too and I think I accomplished it. It’s hard to say more than that without knowing your circumstances, I can only tell you my experiences about making a decision that didn’t necessarily have my parents full backing. This is more a story than advice, since I don’t know more about your situation but I hope it does a little bit to help.
