As a girl, I was made to know that I come from a brigade of bitches—women who will make you eat your words with a quick snarl.
I feel like I can breathe again
You are my biggest weakness
“I want to talk with you forever. I remember every word you’ve ever said to me. If only I could visit you as a foreigner goes into a new country, learn the language of you, wander past all borders into every private and secret place, I would stay forever. I would become a citizen of you. You would say it’s too soon to feel this way. You would ask how I could be so certain. But some things can’t be measured by time. Ask me an hour from now. Ask me a month from now. A year, ten years, a lifetime. The way I love you will outlast every calendar, clock, and every toll of every bell that will ever be cast.”
– Lisa Kleypas, A Wallflower Christmas
“We all need somebody to look at us. We can be divided into four categories according to the kind of look we wish to live under. The first category longs for the look of an infinite number of anonymous eyes, in other words, for the look of the public…
The second category is made up of people who have a vital need to be looked at by many known eyes. They are the tireless hosts of cocktail parties and dinners…
Then there is the third category, the category of people who need to be constantly before the eyes of the person they love. Their situation is as dangerous as the situation of people in the first category. One day the eyes of their beloved will close, and the room will go dark..
And finally there is the fourth category, the rarest, the category of people who live in the imaginary eyes of those who are not present. They are the dreamers.”
– Milan Kundera, The Unbearable Lightness Of Being
Whatever may come between us will never break us apart because love is stronger than anything
“I know all about love that’s too big to stay in a tiny bucket. Splashing out all over the place in the most embarrassing way possible.”
– Carol Rifka Brunt, Tell the Wolves I’m Home
“One thing I learned a long time ago is that even if you think you’re meant to be with someone, that doesn’t necessarily mean you get to be with them.”
– Miranda Kenneally
In a world painted in darkness I could always find light in you.
