“I don’t like to think of myself as an insincere person but if I say I love you and I don’t mean it then what else am I? Will I cherish you, adore you, make way for you, make myself better for you, look at you and always see you, tell you the truth? And if love is not those things then what things?” —Written on the Body, Jeanette Winterson (via helplesslyamazed)
“Being broken hearted is like having broken ribs. On the outside, it looks like nothing is wrong. But every breath hurts.” —(via eletheowl)
I envy people who can dance like this.
And I’m all
“I don’t pretend to know what love is for everyone, but I can tell you what it is for me. Love is knowing all about someone, and still wanting to be with them more than any other person. Love is trusting them enough to tell them everything about yourself, including the things you might be ashamed of. Love is feeling comfortable and safe with someone, but still getting weak knees when they walk into a room and smile at you.” —The O.C. (via eletheowl)
“That’s the problem with us, we’re too much alike. We’re stubborn asses and always want to get our own way. We both hate to be wrong and love to be right. But that’s the thing about love. No matter what happens, we always come back for each other one more time.” —(via wordsandlyrics)
“While I can’t have you, I long for you. I am the kind of person who would miss a train or a plane to meet you for coffee. I’d take a taxi across town to see you for ten minutes. I’d wait outside all night if I thought you would open the door in the morning. If you call me and say ‘Will you…’ my answer is ‘Yes’, before your sentence is out. I spin worlds where we could be together. I dream you. For me, imagination and desire are very close.” —(via rom-pu)
“‘I love you’ means that I accept you for the person that you are, and that I do not wish to change you into someone else. It means that I will love you and stand by you even through the worst of times. It means loving you even when you’re in a bad mood, or too tired to do the things I want to do. It means loving you when you’re down, not just when you’re fun to be with. ‘I love you’ means that I know your deepest secrets and do not judge you for them, asking in return that you do not judge me for mine. It means that I care enough to fight for what we have and that I love you enough not to let go. It means thinking of you, dreaming of you, wanting and needing you constantly, and hoping you feel the same way for me.” —Jonathan Safran Foer (via un-grand-reve)
“I want you to be with someone who makes you feel like I feel when I’m with you.” —Dawson’s Creek (via eletheowl)
My stomach isn't flat enough. My hip bones don't stick out enough. My thighs aren't small enough. My ribs aren't visible enough. My collar bone doesn't protrude enough. My arms aren't thin enough. I'm scared I'll never be "enough."
“I’m very fragile, but I’m also one of the strongest people you’ll ever meet. I’ve got tough skin but a really soft heart.” —Jessica Simpson (via eletheowl)
“Everyone has the heartbreak that shapes them in a way that they could never go back to the innocence that they had before.” —Zooey Deschanel (via eletheowl)
