Introverts, in contrast, may have strong social skills and enjoy parties and business meetings, but after a while wish they were home in their pajamas. They prefer to devote their social energies to close friends, colleagues, and family. They listen more than they talk, think before they speak, and often feel as if they express themselves better in writing than in conversation. They tend to dislike conflict. Many have a horror of small talk, but enjoy deep discussions.
Susan Cain (via quotes-shape-us)
O coração, se pudesse pensar, pararia.

Fernando Pessoa, Livro do Desassossego

  • Translation: "The heart, if it could think it would stop"

(via wordsnquotes)

I’m just a wandering traveller. I’m not really meant to be. I’ll never last, I’ll never stay. A vagabond whose only commitment is to the journey.

Nobody notices when we leave. I mean, the moment when we really choose to go. At best you might feel a whisper, or the wave of a whisper, undulating down”
