You need to be flagrantly insouciant.
You care way too much.
And because of that you will be paralyzed for life and miss out on everything.
Wendy Wunder, The Museum of Intangible Things (via quoted-books) +
'How do I know I can trust you?' she said finally.
‘That’s the thing about trust.’ He crunched an ice cube between his teeth. ‘You don’t know.’
Lauren Oliver, Panic (via quoted-books) +
But what’s regret anyway? Regret, I am learning these days, is a lot of things. But mostly, it’s a slippery seed of longing, of looking back and asking yourself why you didn’t know better when the answers were so obvious all along. Allison Winn Scotch, The Theory of Opposites (via quoted-books) +

We’re all seeking that special person who is right for us. But if you’ve been through enough relationships, you begin to suspect there’s no right person, just different flavors of wrong. Why is this? Because you yourself are wrong in some way, and you seek out partners who are wrong in some complementary way. But it takes a lot of living to grow fully into your own wrongness. And it isn’t until you finally run up against your deepest demons, your unsolvable problems—the ones that make you truly who you are—that we’re ready to find a lifelong mate. Only then do you finally know what you’re looking for. You’re looking for the wrong person. But not just any wrong person: the right wrong person—someone you lovingly gaze upon and think, “This is the problem I want to have.”

I will find that special person who is wrong for me in just the right way.

Let our scars fall in love.

I crave broken men.
When I try to save other people
am I trying to save myself?
Am I covering up for my lack of strength
by putting people back together?
I am tired.
I want someone to save me -
build an intricate web
and place it beneath me in case I fall.
Samantha Schutz, I Don’t Want to Be Crazy (via quoted-books) +
And what about all the good I have in my heart - does it mean anything? Saul Bellow, Herzog (via heresay)

It’s dark because you are trying too hard. Lightly child, lightly. Learn to do everything lightly. Yes, feel lightly even though you’re feeling deeply. Just lightly let things happen and lightly cope with them. So throw away your baggage and go forward. There are quicksands all about you, sucking at your feet, trying to suck you down into fear and self-pity and despair. That’s why you must walk so lightly. Lightly my darling… Aldous Huxley, Island (via quotes-shape-us)

isn’t it weird how with some people you never run out of things to talk about but with others it’s like you always end up talking about the weather
