We assume others show love the same way we do — and if they don’t, we worry it’s not there.
Unknown (via psych-facts)
In your life, you meet people. Some you never think about again. Some, you wonder what happened to them. There are some that you wonder if they ever think about you. And then there are some you wish you never had to think about again. But you do.
C.S. Lewis (via fawun)
I think it’s very healthy to spend time alone. You need to know how to be alone and not be defined by another person.
Oscar Wilde (via theembellishment)
I fall in love with people’s passion.
The way their eyes light up when
they talk about the thing they love
and the way they fill with light.
He looked at her the way all women wanted to be looked at by a man.
F. Scott Fitzgerald
Millions of people have decided not to be sensitive. They have grown thick skins around themselves just to avoid being hurt by anybody. But it is at great cost. Nobody can hurt them, but nobody can make them happy either.
Osho (via seabois)
Every man alone is sincere. At the entrance of a second person, hypocrisy begins. We parry and fend the approach of our fellow man by compliments, by gossip, by amusement, by affairs. We cover up our thought from him under a hundred folds.
Ralph Waldo Emerson (via gentlyman)
The only way you can write the truth is to assume that what you set down will never be read. Not by any other person, and not even by yourself at some later date. Otherwise you begin excusing yourself. You must see the writing as emerging like a long scroll of ink from the index finger of your right hand; you must see your left hand erasing it.
Margaret Atwood (via wordsthat-speak)
This is comforting.(via gentlyman)
Every man has 2 men in him. A King and a fool. How do you know when you’ve found a Queen? When she speaks to the King in you.
Dr. Mike Murdock (via musiqchild007)
Do not chase people. Be you and do your own thing and work hard. The right people who belong in your life will come to you, and stay.
Wu Tang Clan (one of my favorite quotes ever)
