“As a child, I was taught that it was bad manners to bring attention to yourself, and to never, ever make a spectacle of yourself… All of which I’ve earned a living doing.” —~ Audrey Hepburn (via gatekeeper)
“There’s a point in your life where you’re disillusioned and where you go from being a naive person who will trust basically anyone… to the realization that not everyone is good and not everyone is well-intentioned. Then it becomes your decision how to deal with that—whether to become bitter and cynical right off or whether to become a good person and just be more cautious in seeing who’s trustworthy and who isn’t. I think that’s the real maturation that everyone goes through—and that I went through recently—and I think it’s the turning point in everyone’s life.” —Natalie Portman (via christ-follower) (via daisychainss)
