"I’m not totally mad at you. I’m just sad. You’re all locked up in that little world of yours, and when I try knocking on the door, you just sort of look up for a second and go right back inside."
Haruki Murakami (via dieworten)
"Pure love for another person, and what people call romantic love, are two different things. Pure love doesn’t manipulate the relationship to one’s advantage, but romantic love is different. Romantic love contains other elements—the desire to be loved by the other person, for instance. If purely loving another was enough, you wouldn’t suffer because of unrequited love. As long as the other person was happy, there wouldn’t be any need to suffer because you weren’t being loved in return. What makes people suffer is the desire to be loved by another person. So I decided that romantic love and pure love for a person are not the same. And that by following this you could lessen the pain of unrequited love."
Haruki Murakami (via fy-perspectives)
"Nobody can teach me who I am. You can describe parts of me, but who I am - and what I need - is something I have to find out myself."
Chinua Achebe (via fy-perspectives)
"I must be willing to give up what I am in order to become what I will be."
Albert Einstein (via hqlines)
"You brave, brave thing.
One day, you’re going to
stop leaving the door open
for people who only know how
to keep leaving."
We’re All Still Learning (Yasmin Z)
"You’re looking for love and consistency from inconsistent people who don’t know love. And it’s stealing your hope."
Between me and you
For just me and you
"Until you get comfortable with being alone, you’ll never know if you’re choosing someone out of love or loneliness."
