"I won’t beg someone to love me. I learned long ago that there is no use in hopeless pleas of trying to make someone stay. I am too good to chase someone who does not know my worth and I am too wild to keep waiting for someone who doesn’t acknowledge my value. I want to be loved unconditionally. I shouldn’t have to fight so hard for it. I do not have the time to prove to someone that I am worth it. I shouldn’t have to prove any of that; I am worth more than that."

"Being with you never felt wrong. It’s the one thing I did right. You’re the one thing I did right."
- Becca Fitzpatrick, Crescendo (via larmoyante)
"It’s a terrible thing, I think, in life to wait until you’re ready. I have this feeling now that actually no one is ever ready to do anything. There is almost no such thing as ready. There is only now. And you may as well do it now. Generally speaking, now is as good a time as any."
- Hugh Laurie (via godmoves)
"I don’t know much
but I do know that
you are not
made of tragedy.
So don’t call this a
Call it technical difficulty.
Call it the wrong stop on
the right path.
Call it almost there.
Call it halfway.
Call it anything but over.
Because you are
no where near over, baby.
This is the way things work
when they are just getting started.
So don’t hop off yet,
Not when you haven’t even seen
where this is going."
- Y.Z, Technical Difficulty - rustyvoices (via perfect)
I’m writing you a letter
that I’ll burn over the stove
just to watch the light between us
flame and burn out again.
- Shinji Moon, from Expiration Date (via violentwavesofemotion)
"I had asked him many times why he stayed, and he always said the same thing: “Because I love you, and I wanted to, and I knew you were in there.” No matter how damaged I had been, he had loved me enough to still see me somewhere inside."
- Susannah Cahalan, Brain on Fire: My Month of Madness (via quotes-shape-us)
"That you have failed many times is really nothing tragic. You are fundamentally aware through your experiences that failure does not kill you. Failure is a devastator that can’t pull it’s own trigger. So if you’ve failed and you’re still alive, failure is nothing. You want to be a rebel in these perfectionist times, you embrace your failure and keep going. Build up that resiliency, give it another go and take notes when it busts. Science it up man."
- Dig Yourself (via howitzerliterarysociety)
"It’s your life, quite possibly your only one. Still you find yourself having a vodka at three a.m., waiting for your pill to kick in, with time ticking through you and your own ghost already wandering among your rooms."
- Michael Cunningham (via kushandwizdom)
"I understand what you’re saying, and your comments are valuable, but I’m gonna ignore your advice."
- Roald Dahl (via kushandwizdom)
"Grief can be a burden, but also an anchor. You get used to the weight, how it holds you in place."
Sarah Dessen, The Truth About Forever (via quotes-shape-us)
I love this book.
