You don’t ask people with knives in their stomachs what would make them happy; happiness is no longer the point. It’s all about survival; it’s all about whether you pull the knife out and bleed to death or keep it in…
Nick Hornby, How to Be Good (via wholelottaquotes)
I think people would be happier if they admitted things more often. In a sense we are all prisoners of some memory, or fear, or disappointment—we are all defined by something we can’t change.
Simon Van Booy, The Illusion of Separateness (via whatalovelythought)
You are mysterious, I love you. You’re beautiful, intelligent, and virtuous, and that’s the rarest known combination.
F. Scott Fitzgerald (via sweet-southern-charm)
Seek the ones who never stop caring, who break down your walls, and help you come back to yourself.
