"You will always be getting praise and blame, but do not let either affect the poise of the mind: follow the calmness, the absence of pride."

Buddha (via thecalminside)

(via jheneaiko)

"I have had to experience so much stupidity, so many vices, so much error, so much nausea, disillusionment and sorrow, just in order to become a child again and begin anew. I had to experience despair, I had to sink to the greatest mental depths, to thoughts of suicide, in order to experience grace."

Hermann Hesse, Siddhartha  (via 19040825)
