Of course I’ll hurt you. Of course you’ll hurt me. Of course we will hurt each other. But this is the very condition of existence. To become spring, means accepting the risk of winter. To become presence, means accepting the risk of absence.

"You must lurk in libraries and climb the stacks like ladders to sniff books like perfume and wear them like hats upon your crazy heads. May you be in love every day for the next 20,000 days. And out of that love, remake a world." -Ray Bradbury

The sound of the pages turning was the sound of magic. The dry liquid feel of paper under fingertips was what magic felt like.
Emma Donoghue, Kissing the Witch: Old Tales in New Skins (via quoted-books)

I fell in love with her courage, her sincerity, and her flaming self respect. and it’s these things I’d believe in, even if the whole world indulged in wild suspicions that she wasn’t all she should be.

I love her and that is the beginning of everything.

F. Scott Fitzgerald (via h-o-r-n-g-r-y)

Never say ‘no’ to adventures. Always say ‘yes,’ otherwise you’ll lead a very dull life.

The truth is that the more intimately you know someone, the more clearly you’ll see their flaws. That’s just the way it is. This is why marriages fail, why children are abandoned, why friendships don’t last. You might think you love someone until you see the way they act when they’re out of money or under pressure or hungry, for goodness’ sake. Love is something different. Love is choosing to serve someone and be with someone in spite of their filthy heart. Love is patient and kind, love is deliberate. Love is hard. Love is pain and sacrifice, it’s seeing the darkness in another person and defying the impulse to jump ship.
