“Because to influence a person is to give him one’s own soul. He does not think his natural thoughts, or burn with his natural passions. His virtues are not real to him. His sins, if there are such things as sins, are borrowed. He becomes an echo of some one else’s music, an actor of a part that has not been written for him. The aim of life is self-development. To realize one’s nature perfectly — that is what each of us is here for. People are afraid of themselves, nowadays. They have forgotten the highest of all duties, the duty that one owes to oneself. Of course they are charitable. They feed the hungry, and clothe the beggar. But their own souls starve, and are naked. Courage has gone out of our race. Perhaps we never really had it. The terror of society, which is the basis of morals, the terror of God, which is the secret of religion — these are the two things that govern us.”—Oscar Wilde (via reginede)
I dig your style, pilgrim. Do you dress like what you post on tumblr or what's going on?
Haha, can’t say I’ve ever been called pilgrim before. Is there a significant meaning behind that? Or was it just for shits and giggles? Hahah. But yeah, I would say I do. My outfits and the outfits I reblog on tumblr are pretty similar. I get inspiration from what I reblog and the things I reblog are based off of my taste, right? So yeah. I would say so. I’m thinking of doing more outfit posts. I just don’t want to come off as vain in any way. But I’m guessing you saw the one I posted the other day?
