And it’s always because they think love has hurt them when in actuality, it was a person, it was a thing, a wrong decision, a bad mistake, an accident. So don’t let go of love, hold on because I promise you it’s always worth your while.” 16h

People you thought were going to be there forever aren’t, and people you never imagined you’d be speaking to are now some of your closest friends. Life makes little sense, and the more we grow the less sense it will make. So make the most of it now, before it all changes once again, because in the near future, all of this is only going to be memories.” 2d

nick_cabrales_photos "In a past life we were birds. We were always flying south to be warmer. I do not remember how we got separated, but I remember looking back and you were no longer there. It became cold without you, no matter where we flew.
In our first life we were bees. We made our home in the wrong place and that time, I left first. I don’t know how long you lived without me.

In the life just before this one we were vines, twisting and turning around our favorite trees. We were always too far away to touch, to embrace, to become entwined.

But now, we are human and we no longer know how to love one another. Our hands touch, but we don’t feel a thing. We look at each other, but I am afraid we are too tired to try this again.

I thought we could love each other through infinity, but I was wrong" - Amanda Helm, Becoming Human

It's about embracing the pain that you'll experience at the end of a race and not being afraid. I think people think too hard and get afraid of a certain challenge." 1w

nick_cabrales_photos “This life is what you make it. No matter what, you’re going to mess up sometimes, it’s a universal truth. But the good part is you get to decide how you’re going to mess it up. Girls will be your friends - they’ll act like it anyway. But just remember, some come, some go. The ones that stay with you through everything - they’re your true best friends. Don’t let go of them. Also remember, sisters make the best friends in the world. As for lovers, well, they’ll come and go too. And babe, I hate to say it, most of them - actually pretty much all of them are going to break your heart, but you can’t give up because if you give up, you’ll never find your soul mate. You’ll never find that half who makes you whole and that goes for everything. Just because you fail once, doesn’t mean you’re gonna fail at everything. Keep trying, hold on, and always, always, always believe in yourself, because if you don’t, then who will, sweetie? So keep your head high, keep your chin up, and most importantly, keep smiling, because life’s a beautiful thing and there’s so much to smile about.” 2w

nick_cabrales_photos “Let me tell you something you already know. The world ain’t all sunshine and rainbows. It’s a very mean and nasty place. And I don’t care how tough you are. It will beat you to your knees and keep you permanently there if you let it.
You, me, or nobody is gonna hit as hard as life, but it ain’t about how hard you hit, it’s about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward, how much you can take and keep moving forward. That’s how winning is done. Now if you know what you are worth, go out and get what you are worth, but you gotta be willing to take the hits and not pointing fingers, saying you ain’t where you want to be because of him or her or anybody. Cowards do that, and that ain’t you. You’re better than that.” –Rocky Balboa

Just the way they should.” (missing living in the middle of Seattle ) 3w

nick_cabrales_photos “The thing I find interesting 
about the city is that 
it’s surprisingly intimate.
Among the crowds, cabs, and chaos
there is a comfort in quantity.
A simple agreement between 
the multitude that 
the individual must be valued 
in order to progress the system.
Each person will go their own way, 
but because everyone will go their own way, a connection is created 
that creates an atmosphere where
no individual is ever alone.”
