“Do you miss him at the most happy and fulfilling times in your life? Just because you miss him when the world is quiet and you feel alone doesn’t mean you love him… you will miss anyone when you are lonely… it’s when your life is going great and you still feel the ache in your heart because he isn’t there to see the genuine smile on your face and happiness in your life.”—(via out-of-my-dreams) (via fantasyaction) (via alotlikelove)
“Listen. I don’t like to preach, but here’s some advice. You’ll meet a lot of jerks in life. If they hurt you, remember it’s because they’re stupid. Don’t react to their cruelty. There’s nothing worse than bitterness and revenge. Keep your dignity and be true to yourself.”—Persepolis (2007) (via chronicdissatisfaction) (via pattywasfive) (via bandages) (via pieceofmymind) (via everythinglovely)
“Perfect love casts out fear. Where there is love there are no demands, no expectations, no dependency. I do not demand that you make me happy; my happiness does not lie in you. If you were to leave me, I will not feel sorry for myself; I enjoy your company immensely, but I do not cling.”—Anthony De Mello
“I can’t believe I’ve lived this long without having your love,” she whispered weakly.
“You have had it. I’ve always loved you,” he said quietly, threading his fingers through her hair to press her head against his heart. “I just didn’t know your name.”—Sandra Brown
