mariawein:

We need never be hopeless, because we can never be irreparably broken. We think that we are invincible because we are. We cannot be born, and we cannot die. Like all energy, we can only change shapes and sizes and manifestations.”

– John Green, Looking for Alaska

I just found this watercolour I did a few months back.

File under: Things to think when the realization of mortality causes extreme panic

It really is a realization all over again every time it grips me.

I can never read all the books I want; I can never be all the people I want and live all the lives I want. I can never train myself in all the skills I want. And why do I want? I want to live and feel all the shades, tones and variations of mental and physical experience possible in life. And I am horribly limited.

This is how I feel, and a part of what causes me to panic.
