Things We Said

People say I love you all the time - when they say, ‘take an umbrella, it’s raining,’ or ‘hurry back,’ or even ‘watch out, you’ll break your neck.’ There are hundreds of ways of wording it - you just have to listen for it, my dear.

John Patrick, The Curious Savage (via feellng)

Where there is ruin, there is hope for a treasure.

When I was a child my mother said to me, ‘If you become a soldier, you’ll be a general. If you become a monk, you’ll be the pope.’ Instead I became a painter and wound up as Picasso.

Pablo Picasso (via observando)

Alice Hoffman (via onlinecounsellingcollege)

No one really knows why they are alive until they know what they’d die for.

Martin Luther King Jr. (via observando)

Good people are like candles; they burn themselves up to give others light.

Turkish Proverb (via hefuckin)

Then he kissed her. At his lips’ touch she blossomed for him like a flower and the incarnation was complete.

It’s amazing how words can do that. Just shred your insides apart.

Delirium by Lauren Oliver (via literarylines)

For there is nothing heavier than compassion. Not even one’s own pain weighs so heavy as the pain one feels with someone, for someone, a pain intensified by the imagination and prolonged by a hundred echoes.

Milan Kundera

(One of my favorite quotes of all time.)
