If you don’t make time to work on creating the life you want, you’ll be forced to spend dealing with a life you don’t want.
― Kevin Ngo (via awakenedvibrations)
When you protect yourself from pain, be sure you do not protect yourself from love.
― Alan Cohen (via quotethat)
We live and breathe words. …. It was books that made me feel that perhaps I was not completely alone. They could be honest with me, and I with them. Reading your words, what you wrote, how you were lonely sometimes and afraid, but always brave; the way you saw the world, its colors and textures and sounds, I felt—I felt the way you thought, hoped, felt, dreamt. I felt I was dreaming and thinking and feeling with you. I dreamed what you dreamed, wanted what you wanted—and then I realized that truly I just wanted you.
― Cassandra Clare, Clockwork Prince (via observando)
