Here’s honesty. When you’re 25 and younger they say inexperienced to shut you up. When your 25 and older they say past your prime to shut you up. The whole point is for you to feel either too young or too old or too inexperienced or too weary from experience. Old dogs do learn new tricks. Young rattlesnakes do have better venom. The unskilled lack confidence. The skilled get lazy. Everyone has a hiccup. You want to be something, carve out a space big enough to sit in and get to it.

Dig Yourself (via howitzerliterarysociety)

The tongue can conceal the truth, but the eyes never! You’re asked an unexpected question, you don’t even flinch, it takes just a second to get yourself under control, you know just what you have to say to hide the truth, and you speak very convincingly, and nothing in your face twitches to give you away. But the truth, alas, has been disturbed by the question, and it rises up from the depths of your soul to flicker in your eyes and all is lost.

Mikhail Bulgakov, The Master and Margarita (via fyodors)
