"You are the ocean and I’m good at drowning."
"I demand unconditional love and complete freedom. That is why I am terrible."
"Oh, love isn’t there to make us happy. I believe it exists to show us how much we can endure."
Hermann Hesse, Wer lieben kann, ist glücklich. Über die Liebe
"There’s nothing that I’d take back. But it’s hard to say there’s nothing I regret."
Of Monsters And Men, Silhouettes
"It is never too late to turn on the light. Your ability to break an unhealthy habit or turn off an old tape doesn’t depend on how long it has been running; a shift in perspective doesn’t depend on how long you’ve held on to the old view. When you flip the switch in that attic, it doesn’t matter whether its been dark for ten minutes, ten years or ten decades. The light still illuminates the room and banishes the murkiness, letting you see the things you couldn’t see before. Its never too late to take a moment to look"
"I say I don’t believe in love, but that’s not really true - love is just the name of an emotion. It’s like on steroids. It’s lust with ethics."
Tammara Webber, Where You Are
"Everyone knows how to talk, and no one knows what to say."
Nick Hornby, A Long Way Down
"Acting like you don’t care is not letting it go."
"Everything has changed and yet, I am more me than I’ve ever been."
Iain Thomas - I Wrote This For You
"I don’t miss him anymore. Most of the time, anyway. I want to. I wish I could but unfortunately, it’s true: time does heal. It will do so whether you like it or not, and there’s nothing anyone can do about it. If you’re not careful, time will take away everything that ever hurt you, everything you have lost, and replace it with knowledge. Time is a machine: it will convert your pain into experience… It will force you to move on and you will not have a choice in the matter."
Charles Yu, How to Live Safely in a Science Fictional Universe
"The thing about sadness is that it never warns you that it will come back. You’ll end up with an aching heart again, minutes after laughing, and it will feel like you found someone in your house; someone who you thought had left."
"Please don’t expect me to always be good and kind and loving. There are times when I will be cold and thoughtless and hard to understand."
