"I felt my lungs inflate with the onrush of scenery—air, mountains, trees, people. I thought, ‘This is what it is to be happy.’"
— Sylvia Plath, The Bell Jar (via observando)
"There comes a point when you just love someone. Not because they’re good, or bad, or anything really. You just love them. It doesn’t mean you’ll be together forever. It doesn’t mean you won’t hurt each other. It just mean you love them. Sometimes in spite of who they are, and sometimes because of who they are. And you know that they love you, sometimes because of who you are, and sometimes in spite of it."
— Laurell K. Hamilton, Incubus Dreams (via observando)
"Nothing can wear you out like caring about people."
— S.E. Hinton, That Was Then, This Is Now (via larmoyante)
