nobody can save you but
yourself
and you’re worth saving.
it’s a war not easily won
but if anything is worth winning then
this is it.

think about it.
think about saving your self.

The man who does not value himself, cannot value anything or anyone. — The Virtue of Selfishness - Ayn Rand (via sprvxn)
i If a single person in a country is cold or hungry, the leader is at fault — Paul J Meyer (via vanishlikesome)
Every villain is a hero in his own mind. — Tom Hiddleston (via lovely-little-quotes)
In the name of the best within you, do not sacrifice this world to those who are its worst. In the name of the values that keep you alive, do not let your vision of man be distorted by the ugly, the cowardly, the mindless in those who have never achieved his title. Do not lose your knowledge that man’s proper estate is an upright posture, an intransigent mind and a step that travels unlimited roads. Do not let your fire go out, spark by irreplaceable spark, in the hopeless swamps of the approximate, the not–quite, the not–yet, the not–at–all. Do not let the hero in your soul perish, in lonely frustration for the life you deserved, but have never been able to reach. Check your road and the nature of your battle. The world you desired can be won, it exists, it is real, it is possible, it’s yours. — Ayn Rand (via itsquoted)
A creative man is motivated by the desire to achieve, not by the desire to beat others. — Ayn Rand (via dffect)
Thinking is not an automatic function. — Ayn Rand

I swear, by my life and my love of it, that I will never live for the sake of another man, nor ask another man to live for mine. — Ayn Rand (via ig-narus)
