This is what we call love. When you are loved, you can do anything in creation. When you are loved, there’s no need at all to understand what’s happening, because everything happens within you.
-Paulo Coelho, The Alchemist (via feellng)
Respect was invented to cover the empty place where love should be.
-Leo Tolstoy, Anna Karenina (via feellng)
You’ll get over it…” It’s the clichés that cause the trouble. To lose someone you love is to alter your life for ever. You don’t get over it because ‘it” is the person you loved. The pain stops, there are new people, but the gap never closes. How could it? The particularness of someone who mattered enough to grieve over is not made anodyne by death. This hole in my heart is in the shape of you and no-one else can fit it. Why would I want them to?
-Jeanette Winterson, Written on the Body (via feellng)
Come sleep with me: We won’t make Love,Love will make us.
-Julio Cortázar (via feellng)
Life is a series of natural and spontaneous changes. Don’t resist them; that only creates sorrow. Let reality be reality. Let things flow naturally forward in whatever way they like.
-Lao Tzu (via feellng)
