"We are very good at preparing to live, but not very good at living. We know how to sacrifice ten years for a diploma, and we are willing to work very hard to get a job, a car, a house, and so on. But we have difficulty remembering that we are alive in the present moment, the only moment there is for us to be alive."

"I wish you were here to find me, smile, drag me out dancing, soft smile sliding out the syllables of my name in reproach, except, maybe you don’t go out dancing? that’s okay by me, i could be all dressed up and we could sit in your room and talk about art and smile shyly at each other and wonder how we will ever cross that divide to the first kiss. Maybe it’d be nice to cross that huge divide. I like the idea that you’d be there, on the other side of it, waiting for me."

"I can only tell you a thought of my own hopes. It is to know that love exists for real in the human world. All kinds of it. The bigger and the smaller, the most absurd one and the most sublime one. Desire and denying. Trust and distrust. All kinds of love."
— Through A Glass Darkly (1961) dir. by Ingmar Bergman (via violentwavesofemotion)
"Kiss your own fingertips
and hug your own curves.
You are made of waves and honey
and spicy peppers when it is necessary.
You are a goddess,
I hope you haven’t forgotten."
— Emery Allen (via psych-facts)
"I think perhaps love comes from finding someone you feel utterly comfortable with, someone who makes you comfortable with yourself. It’s like…finding yourself, or maybe it’s like finding the other part of yourself."

"For what it’s worth: it’s never too late to be whoever you want to be. I hope you live a life you’re proud of, and if you find you’re not, I hope you have the strength to start over again."
