Just because you don’t say much doesn’t mean people don’t notice you. It’s actually the quiet ones who often draw the most attention. There’s this constant whirlwind of motion and sound all around, and then there’s the quiet one, the eye of the storm.
I suspect the truth is that we are waiting, all of us, against insurmountable odds, for something extraordinary to happen to us.
—Khaled Hosseini, And the Mountains Echoed (via hellanne)
