Life is so damned hard, so damned hard… It just hurts people and hurts people, until finally it hurts them so that they can’t be hurt ever any more. That’s the last and worst thing it does.
F. Scott Fitzgerald, The Beautiful and Damned (via quotes-shape-us)

The only motivation I have to play my oboe is the fact that I’ll get warm (as in it makes me sweat after I play for a long time. You can try it at home actually when you blow air through a pin hole for about an hour.) It’s cold as hecky in my house.
