“You fall in love, it’s intoxicating, and for a little while you feel like you’ve actually become one with the other person. Merged souls, and so on. You think you’ll never be lonley again. Only it doesn’t last and soon you realize you can only get so close, and you end up brutally disappointed, more alone than ever, because the illusion—the hope you’d held on to all those years—has been shattered.”—Man Walks into a Room by Nicole Krauss (via quote-book)
I’d love to appreciate people’s care. But these days, I need to prove to myself and everyone else that I can take care of myself. Yes, there will be tons of mistakes along the way. But hey, in the end, what doesn’t kill us just makes us stronger.
So thanks for the concern, but I can take it from here.
“If you’re going to love me, love only me. If you decide to break my heart, break it all. If you’re going to hug me, hug me like you mean it. If you’re going to care for me, care for me all the time. If you decide not to hold me, let me fall. If you’re going to stay, stay forever. If you’re going to leave, leave now. If you’re going to change, change for the better. And if we’re going to talk, please mean what you say. ”—Steven Rosas (via mysweetheart)
“Men always want to be a woman’s first love. That is their clumsy vanity. We women have a more subtle instinct about things. What we like is to be a man’s last romance.”—A Woman of No Importance, Oscar Wilde (via quote-book)
“Things in life are not always as they seem. When you listen, for instance, to someone talking, there is another voice beneath his words..even if you hear clearly what he is saying, the real truth is much deeper.”—Johnny Depp (submitted by dearjasminee)
