There is poetry and there is beauty in real sympathy; but there is more — there is action. The noblest and most powerful form of sympathy is not merely the responsive tear, the echoed sigh, the answering look; it is the embodiment of the sentiment in actual help.
— Octavius Winslow (via misswallflower)
Everything is more beautiful
because we’re doomed.
You will never be lovelier than you are now.
We will never be here again.
— Homer, The Iliad (via quotes-shape-us)
