"Love is something eternal. The aspects may change but never the essence."
-Vincent Van Gough
“Every heart is a package tangled up in knots someone else made.”
- Josh Ritter
"Even if your hands are shaking
And your faith is broken
…Even as the eyes are closing
Do it with a heart wide open “
"Just because today is a terrible day doesn’t mean tomorrow won’t be the best day of your life. You just gotta get there."
"I love people who make me laugh. I honestly think it’s the thing I like most, to laugh. It cures a multitude of ills. It’s probably the most important thing in a person."
"be with someone who knows what they have when they have you"
" You may not be her first, her last, or her only. she loved before she may love again. But if she loves you now, what else matters? She’s not perfect - you aren’t either, and the two of you may never be perfect together but if she can make you laugh, cause you to think twice, and admit to being human and making mistakes, hold onto her and give her the most you can. She may not be thinking about you every second of the day, but she will give you a part of her that she knows you can break - her heart. So don’t hurt her, don’t change her, don’t analyze and don’t expect more than she can give. Smile when she makes you happy, let her know when she makes you mad, and miss her when she’s not there. "
- Bob Marley
"I wanted so badly to lie down next to her on the couch, to wrap my arms around her and sleep. Not fuck, like in those movies. Not even have sex. Just sleep together, in the most innocent sense of the phrase. But I lacked the courage and she had a boyfriend and I was gawky and she was gorgeous and I was hopelessly boring and she was endlessly fascinating. So I walked back to my room and collapsed on the bottom bunk, thinking that if people were rain, I was drizzle and she was a hurricane."
- John Green
