"I take great care of myself by carefully shutting myself away"
Vincent Van Gogh in a letter to his brother, Theo. [letter] (via satanforsatin)
"When we least expect it, life sets us a challenge to test our courage and willingness to change; at such a moment, there is no point in pretending that nothing has happened or in saying that we are not yet ready. The challenge will not wait. Life does not look back. A week is more than enough time for us to decide whether or not to accept our destiny."
