No matter what anybody tells you, words and ideas can change the world.
We don’t read and write poetry because it’s cute. We read and write poetry because we are members of the human race. And the human race is filled with passion. And medicine, law, business, engineering, these are noble pursuits and necessary to sustain life. But poetry, beauty, romance, love, these are what we stay alive for.
(Dead Poets Society, 1989)

You are worth it and you deserve it.
Also, please reblog this so more people can see this. It could save a life.
Tumblr has been one of the most accommodating and useful websites that the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline is represented on.
