But with you I am deeply passionately, unrequitedly in love—Virginia Woolf in a letter to Vanessa Bell dated 16 October 1928 (via violentwavesofemotion)
I got a new feeling now, you’ve been teaching to me, just like I told you once, just like a new religion to me, and I see perhaps what really loving is like, like really having everything together, new things, little pieces all different, like I always before been thinking was bad to be having, all go together like, to make one good big feeling. You see, it’s certainly like that you make me been seeing, like I never know before any way there was of all kinds of loving to I see that now, sometimes, the way you certainly been teaching me, and then I love you those times, like a real religion, and then it comes over me all sudden, I don’t know anything real about you but I still love you always, you know that now, all right, for certain.Gertrude Stein, from Three Lives (via violentwavesofemotion)
- “I think that I have been holding myself back from falling in love again.”
- Look around, Ted. You’re all alone.
Always find time for the things that make you feel happy to be alive.Sonny Franco (via psych-facts)
I want to believe that the imperfections are nothing – that the light is everything – that it is more than the sum of each flawed blossom rising and fading. And I do.Mary Oliver, from The Ponds (via violentwavesofemotion)
And it’s funny, in a moment like that, when what’s really happening is too intense to deal with, sometimes it’s best to leave it unspoken and just enjoy eachothers company instead.Ted Mosby - How I Met Your Mother (via howimetyourmotherquotes)
We all need somebody to talk to. It would be good if we talked… not just pitter-patter, but real talk. We shouldn’t be so afraid, because most people really like this contact; that you show you are vulnerable makes them free to be vulnerable. It’s so much easier to be together when we drop our masks.Liv Ullmann, from Words Of Wisdom (via violentwavesofemotion)
