“You must not reduce yourself to a puddle just because the person you like is afraid to swim and you are a fierce sea to them; because there will be someone who was born with love of the waves within their blood, and they will look at you with fear and respect.”—
T.B. LaBerge // Things I’m Still Learning at 25 (via tblaberge)
I have certain things that I look for when I’m scoping out guys in a crowd, certain things that catch my eye. I like converse and when guys wear rings and have facial hair. My favorite is when they’re growing a beard but it’s not a beard yet, it’s just scruff. I’ve liked guys who didn’t have any of those things. But I think when you meet someone you click with, the way they look becomes what you want. Maybe you never thought you’d like someone for one reason or another, but if it’s right, it’s right and suddenly it’s hard to imagine wanting anyone else. You watch them become more and more beautiful as they talk. So, I couldn’t date someone I thought was ugly, I guess… But because once I fall for someone, they’re the most handsome ever. If I think they’re not cute, chances are I don’t like them enough.
I think I’d choose one year with my true love, which I’m sure would be the best year of my existence, fleeting and wonderful. Just one year is heartbreaking though. But I’d rather have one year with the person who feels right, who makes me feel alive, than have none with them at all… Even though never having them would mean my heart wouldn’t break as much when they’re gone. Still, I think better to have loved and lost than to never have loved them at all.

“She did not need much, wanted very little. A kind word, sincerity, fresh air, clean water, a garden, kisses, books to read, sheltering arms, a cozy bed, and to love and be loved in return.”—Starra Neely Blade (via thatkindofwoman)
“Sometimes when I’m really enjoying a book, I’ll read a sentence or paragraph and just think - how can someone’s head be wired in such a way that they’d come up with that?”—Joe Abercrombie (via kushandwizdom)
when my dad was in college he had a friend who told a girl he’d take her on a date unlike any other she’d ever been on and so he took her to the supermarket to watch the lobsters fighting in the lobster tank
