“Before you, I was never so emotional. No one could make me cry, and no one made me think so hard. But now the tears flow like rain from the saddest sky there is, and my frantic thoughts are tearing me apart. I’m not going to let it end this way. I’m done feeling sorry for myself, and I’m done being broken, and I’m done letting you make me feel like that at all. I’m going to make myself stronger, no matter how I have to do it. Because these thoughts are enough to drive someone insane, and I’m not going to let that be me anymore. I’m taking a stand.”—(via raindropsonredroses)
“In love, no one can harm anyone else; we are each of us responsible for our own feelings and cannot blame someone else for what we feel. It hurt when I lost each of the various men I fell in love with. Now, though, I am convinced that no one loses anyone, because no one owns anyone. That is the true experience of freedom: having the most important thing in the world without owning it.”—Paulo Coelho, Eleven Minutes
“It’s amazing, some people, they just say these small little things, one sentence and it changes the way you feel about them in an instant. Small little words that can hurt you so much or make you fall deeply in love forever. It changes everything, nothing between you is ever really the same again, even if they don’t know it.”—(via raindropsonredroses)
“I think that’s what’s wrong with the world. No one says what they feel, they always hold it inside. They’re sad, but they don’t cry. They’re happy, but they don’t dance or sing. They’re angry, but they don’t scream. Because if they do, they feel ashamed. And that’s the worst feeling in the world. So everyone walks with their heads down and no one sees how beautiful the sky is.”—(via raindropsonredroses)
“I want someone who won’t care that I’m incapable of sitting still for more than fifteen minutes, that I can’t grasp the concept of cleaning, and that I refuse to be ‘lady-like’. Someone who can understand that half the decisions that I make are the ones that I regret, and that sometimes I overreact. I want someone who knows me in and out, but would still do absolutely anything to make sure that I’m theirs.”—(via raindropsonredroses)
“I think everyone has a certain part of their lives where they truly wish they could just freeze time. Whether it was three years ago, today, or still to come, whether it was just a moment, a whole day, or a whole summer. Everyone has a time in their life where they wish everything would just stop. The world would stop turning & people would stop changing. Because to them, at that time, everything was perfect.”—(via raindropsonredroses)
“I want you to remember me someday, I want you to hear our song at some random moment. And I want you to feel a stabbing pain, go right through the middle of your heart and for that fleeting moment in time, I want you to feel like I did.”—(via raindropsonredroses)
“Thinking, boy, is something you should get in the habit of making use of more often—it helps in everything. Everything but love, that is. Love is a sort of seventh day, so that thinking can rest.”—Merlin (from the 1967 film, Camelot) (via elicec) (via quote-book)
“If you detect even an inkling of happiness, a tiny glimpse of love, a mere hint of contentment, for heaven’s sake grab it and don’t let go. Don’t ever think twice.”—“Chloe” by Freya North (submitted by technicolora) (via quote-book) (via lovebot)
Sometimes all I want to do is just sit beside you.
I want to watch stupid, disappointing, totally crappy movies with you, and though it feels like we’re wasting time doing that, I want to laugh about them with you.
I want to talk about random stuff with you, not because I want some small talk, but I just like hearing our voices. Yes, it’s weird. But I like the sound of us talking.
I want us dreaming of things we want to do, and all the things I wish I could do, and all the things you want to be able to do, and all the things we swear we would do. Maybe we won’t be able to do them all, but having myself picture out both of us in it, that’s just about enough for me.
And one morning when I woke up with you beside me, I swore to myself I want to do this every day of my life. Just waking up, just seeing that you were beside me the whole time my eyes were closed. Just waking up, just seeing that the person I dreamed of, is also that same person I see the moment my dream ended. I like mornings with you. You’re the extension of my sweet dream.
I love loving you. The feeling of repeatedly falling in love with you. The feeling of being all angry at you but still loving you. The feeling of wanting to cry ceaselessly because of pains that would have not existed had I not been loving you. The feeling of fear of not making you happy though I love you. The feeling of happiness of loving you, and wanting to do it, every single day. And that feeling of wanting to cling to this roller coaster of emotions, all because I love you.
But I know much like the seasons, we and our feelings would change.
Maybe tomorrow we’d love each other more. Or maybe, just maybe, less.
Maybe we’d discover more things to love about each other, Or maybe, we could get tired of loving us.
Maybe, though we never think we would, we may fall in love not with each other again, but with someone new. Or maybe, we could really grow old together.
Maybe despite the many promises, the many dreams, the many tomorrows we said we’ll always spend together, we’d just break, and pop, and tear them as we grow apart. Or maybe, they could all really be true.
I may have done stupid things. I may do them again. You may have done things that hurt me. You may do them again. We can be doing stupid things and hurting each other, these things,over and over.
I don’t know how long we could keep us.
But to hell with all the doubts in my head. I love you. I love you today with every fiber in my body. I love you for everything you are and aren’t.
It’s far too late to be warning myself of things that could and could not happen. I already love you as if it is life and death.
To hell with what tomorrow would bring. Today, I love you, I need you, I want only you.
And if you just allow me to be feeling that, even with the assurance of only today, then I’d just ask for your permission every single day.
“The beginning of love is to let those we love be perfectly themselves, and not to twist them to fit our own image. Otherwise we love only the reflection of ourselves we find in them.”—Thomas Merton (via kari-shma) (via quote-book)
“A life is not worth living if you are sleepwalking through it. We cannot sleepwalk. We cannot just survive, anything goes. We can take control of our lives, we can quit sleepwalking, we can say - right now, these are our lives, it is time to start living it. It is time to not second guess, to move forward, to make mistakes if we have to, but to do it with a greater good in mind.”—Jerry Maguire (submitted by technicolora) (via quote-book)
“In the past, I’d look at my friends that were good in math, and I’d think, ‘wouldn’t love be an easy problem for them to solve too?’ I’d wonder about that. If love had an equation and you knew the solution, maybe we wouldn’t hurt each other, maybe we wouldn’t misunderstand each other, and maybe we could just Love.”—Choi Kwan Jang, Personal Taste/ Submitted By Euncii (via quote-book)
“Keep on beginning and failing. Each time you fail, start all over again, and you will grow stronger until you have accomplished a purpose - not the one you began with perhaps, but one you’ll be glad to remember.”—Anne Sullivan (via kari-shma) (via quote-book) (via modernprincess)
“It’s been fifty years, fifty long years since I’ve done this. Looking back on what I said all those years ago, all the hopes and dreams I had, I’ve come to the conclusion that if having things turn out the way you wanted them to is a measure of a successful life, then some would say I’m a failure. The important thing is not to be bitter over life’s disappointments. Learn to let go of the past. And recognize that every day won’t be sunny, and when you find yourself lost in the darkness and despair, remember it’s only in the black of night you see the stars. And those stars will lead you back home. So don’t be afraid to make mistakes, to stumble and fall, cause most of the time, the greatest rewards come from doing the things that scare you the most. Maybe you’ll get everything you wish for. Maybe you’ll get more than you ever could have imagined. Who knows where life will take you. The road is long and in the end, the journey is the destination.”—Coach Whitey Durham, One Tree Hill
