But I just wanted her in my life. I had fallen in love, even if she was still finding her way.The Last Lecture (Randy Pausch)
For a wound to heal, you have to clean it out. Again, and again, and again. And this cleaning process stings. The cleaning of a wound hurts. Yes. Healing takes so much work. So much persistence.

Anonymous said: I think I've fallen in love with you. Can we get married and have kids and live happily every after?
Unfortunately, I’ve kinda fallen for someone and I’m currently in the pursuit of annoying her with my existence even though I don’t really see her that much (shots fired [she follows me on Tumblr]).
So, no. We can’t live happily ever after, because I may be trying to give someone else that ending. Somehow. Maybe.
There is only one corner of the universe you can be certain of improving, and that’s your own self.Aldous Huxley (via thecalminside)
The world breaks every one and afterward many are strong at the broken places. But those that will not break it kills. It kills the very good and the very gentle and the very brave impartially. If you are none of these you can be sure it will kill you too but there will be no special hurry.Ernest Hemingway, A Farewell to Arms (via wordsnquotes)
