“The opposite of love is not hate, it’s indifference.
The opposite of art is not ugliness, it’s indifference.
The opposite of faith is not heresy, it’s indifference.
And the opposite of life is not death, it’s indifference.”—Elie Wiesel (via justbesplendid) (via quote-book)
“When we were children we were grateful to those who filled our stockings at Christmas time. Why are we not grateful to God for filling our stockings with legs?”—~G.K. Chesterton (via justbesplendid) (via quote-book)
when you love someone, you give them more than just your heart. you give them your lips, your hands, your body and your soul. you give them every part of you that you know they could break, but trust that they won't. you give them the parts of you that they can not only hold in the hands, but also in their hearts. you love them properly, painfully and beautifully.
Sometimes it makes me terribly sad, that everyone doesn’t just fall in love once and stay in love. Wouldn’t it be nice? Curled up inside each other like sleeping kittens. And I think even if you do find that person, that 100% perfect other, you still change, both of you, and hopefully the changes still allow you to stay in love, those two new people just as compatible as the people you were when you met and fell in love.
You know that pain in your gut when someone you’ve loved loves someone else? That forlorn feeling of “not me, not me, not me”? No, it’s not you. But it’s not your ex-lover either. Not the one you knew, not exactly. Not the same dance, not at all, even when it looks the same. How can it be, when you aren’t there to do it? No one is as good at being you as you are. And he wanted you once. Your lover has changed, changed into someone that wants someone else, not you, not you, not you.
I have been addicted to this song for the past week or so. I don’t know why probably because it really digs into my heart and makes me all choked up, but whatever. It has been on repeat for days and will most likely continue. I love when music can connect with me like this even if it gives me a bit of a bittersweet sort of feeling. lol. :D
“The truth always comes out, and when it comes out, it can set you free or end everything you fought so hard for. Another way the truth comes out, when you don’t even mean it to or when without saying a word, it’s still loud and clear. But the worst thing the truth can do is when you finally tell it, it doesn’t set you free, but locks you away forever.”—Gossip Girl (via nigeljosh) (via eatsomebrains)
“It’s no good pretending that any relationship has a future if your record collections disagree violently or if your favorite films wouldn’t even speak to each other if they met at a party.”—Nick Hornby (via kari-shma)
