“When at last I came upon the right book, the feeling was violent: it blew open a hole in me that made life more dangerous because I couldn’t control what came through it.” ―Nicole Krauss, Great House

I’m an acquired taste…not for everybody, but for the ones that get me…I will give you all of me, all the time.
It’s like coming home after a long trip. That’s what love is like. It’s like coming home.

The hardest thing in the world is to simplify your life. It’s so easy to make it complex. What’s important is leading an examined life.

You’re going to make mistakes. Thousands of them, everybody does. But the important thing is you’re going to need to bounce back. You can’t just give up after every failure.

You will call me sweetheart
and I will still stumble over
good morning

I will want to know how many breaths you take after waking up
before you consider yourself alive

I will shiver when you touch me
do not be offended;
you are the warmest person I know.

How the beginning will go - Meghan Lynn (via thesoutherly)
