The world says: “You have needs — satisfy them. You have as much right as the rich and the mighty. Don’t hesitate to satisfy your needs; indeed, expand your needs and demand more.” This is the worldly doctrine of today. And they believe that this is freedom. The result for the rich is isolation and suicide, for the poor, envy and murder.Fyodor Dostoyevsky, The Brothers Karamazov (via fy-perspectives)
I regret that it takes a life to learn how to live.Jonathan Safran Foer, Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close (via talithak0um)
