"Lovers don’t finally meet somewhere. They’re in each other all along."
- Rumi (via a-thousand-words)
"I like you, but not too much. I don’t want to like anybody too much."
- Sylvia Plath (via sensibilitaet)
"It’s messing people up, this social pressure to “find your passion” and “know what it is you want to do”. It’s perfectly fine to just live your moments fully, and marvel as many small and large passions, many small and large purposes enter and leave your life. For many people there is no realization, no bliss to follow, no discovery of your life’s purpose. This isn’t sad, it’s just the way things are. Stop trying to find the forest and just enjoy the trees."
- Sally Coulter (via moaka)
"Mostly, I could tell, I made him feel uncomfortable. He didn’t understand me, and he was sort of holding it against me. I felt the urge to reassure him that I was like everybody else, just like everybody else. But really there wasn’t much point, and I gave up the idea out of laziness."
- Albert Camus, L’Étranger (via observando)
