I hope you have the courage to pursue someone who is worth pursuing, and not someone who is convenient. Convenience is impatience disguised as your desires, you are worth more than what time has told you, you are worthy of finding someone who will wait for you; don’t settle for what is easy, settle for what is good.T.B. LaBerge // Go Now (via tblaberge)

It’s a pointless question to ask yourself if you’re happy. Being able to say you are not unhappy is a great thing already. I think the word "happiness" should only be used with great care. You can use it to describe moments, perhaps. What is happiness? It’s elation. A positive feeling that suddenly jumps beyond merely feeling good. And that’s nice, if you’re reasonably content in your life. If you’re satisfied, with a reasonably clear conscience, if you live reasonably well, then that’s a huge privilege. Not many achieve that.Michael Haneke, from My Life (2009 (via violentwavesofemotion)
I don’t think that we really have a choice in the people that we fall for.Jenny Schecter, from The L Word (via violentwavesofemotion)
