Madness...

True, we love life, not because we are used to living, but because we are used to loving. There is always some madness in love, but there is also always some reason in madness. 

- Petrarch

Never reaching...

        Many never realize they always had the key in their pocket, so they die at the locked door, never reaching deep inside to pull it out.

You won't let me go...

I can't keep running back to you every time you show me some sort of false hope, leading me to believe that it isn't really over between us.
It would so much easier for me if you just would outright say that you aren't going to come back to me anymore.
But you won't, because that's not who you are. You won't let me go, even though you let me go as soon as you knew you had me.

He lives in me...

When he sees me in all and sees all in me, then I never leave him and he never leaves me. And he, who in this oneness of Love loves me in whatever he sees, wherever this man may live, in truth, he lives in me.

-The Bhagwad Gita.

Don't try...

Don't try to play with my head,
because you seriously don't want me to start playing with yours...

Strong women..

“Strong women wear their pain like stilettos. No matter how much it hurts, all you see is the beauty of it.” 

~ Harriet Morgan

Through love....

Through Love all that is bitter will be sweet, Through Love all that is copper will be gold, Through Love all dregs will become wine, through Love all pain will turn to medicine.

Crazy as the other...

What is exciting is not for one person to be stronger than the other... but for two people to have met their match and yet they are equally as stubborn, as obstinate, as passionate, as crazy as the other.
-  Barbra Streisand

Secrets...

Behind the most beautiful eyes, 
lay secrets 
deeper and darker 
than the mysterious sea.

Where am I going??

I have come to accept the feeling of not knowing where I am going. And I have trained myself to love it. Because it is only when we are suspended in mid-air with no landing in sight, that we force our wings to unravel and alas begin our flight. And as we fly, we still may not know where we are going to. But the miracle is in the unfolding of the wings. You may not know where you're going, but you know that so long as you spread your wings, the winds will carry you.

Without expectations...

You are only as beautiful as the many beautiful things you do for others without expectation. 
- Janelle Monae

Obsession...

Extinguish my eyes, I'll go on seeing you.
Seal my ears, I'll go on hearing you.
And without feet I can make my way to you,
without a mouth I can swear your name.

Break off my arms, I'll take hold of you
with my heart as with a hand.
Stop my heart, and my brain will start to beat.
And if you consume my brain with fire,
I'll feel you burn in every drop of my blood.

Anticipation of kiss...

 

He wanted to draw out the moment before the moment- because as good as kissing feels, nothing feels as good as the anticipation of it.

I fell for its spell...

I was free with every road as my home. No limitations and no commitments. But then summer passed and winter came and I fell short for safety. I fell for its spell, slowly humming me to sleep, because I was tired and small, too weak to take or handle those opinions and views, attacking me from every angle. Against my art, against my self, against my very way of living. I collected my thoughts, my few possessions and built isolated walls around my values and character. I protected my own definition of beauty and success like a treasure at the bottom of the sea, for no one saw what I saw, or felt the same as I did, and so I wanted to keep to myself. 
You hide to protect yourself.

Same answers...

    Never give up on someone. Sometimes the answers you are looking for are the same answers another person is looking for. Two people searching together are always better than one person alone.

Essence of beauty..

There is nothing more rare, nor more beautiful, than a woman being unapologetically herself; comfortable in her perfect imperfection. To me, that is the true essence of beauty.

- Steve Maraboli

I take risks..

"I take risks, sometimes patients die. But not taking risks causes more patients to die, so I guess my biggest problem is I've been cursed with the ability to do the math."

- House M.D.

Don't go....

And he understands. He understands why people hold hands: he'd always thought it was about possessiveness, saying This is mine. But it's about maintaining contact. It is about speaking without words. It is about I want you with me and don't go.      
Cassandra Clare

Connecting threads..

  Everyone knows how to love, because we are all born with that gift. Some people have a natural talent for it, but the majority of us have to re-learn, to remember how to love, and everyone, without exception, needs to burn on the bonfire of past emotions, to relive certain joys and griefs, certain ups and downs, until they can see the connecting thread that exists behind each new encounter; because there is a connecting thread.

Paulo Coelho's, Eleven Minutes

Woman's heart...

        A true gentleman is one that apologizes anyways, even though he has not offended a lady intentionally. He is in a class all of his own because he knows the value of a woman's heart.

Hate and love...

Within my heart is lurking suspicion, and base fear, and shame and hate; but above all, tyrannous love sits throned, crowned with her graces, silent and in tears. 

- William Hazlitt

When the truth is ugly...

When the truth is ugly, people try to keep it hidden, because they know if revealed, the damage it will do. So they conceal it within sturdy walls or they place it behind closed doors or they obscure it with clever disguises but truth, no matter how ugly, always emerges. And someone we care about always ends up getting hurt. And someone else will revel in their pain and that's the ugliest truth of all.

Pull yourself...

    Pour yourself a drink, put on some lipstick, and pull yourself together.

Infinity..

The meaning of life is contained in every single expression of life. It is present in the infinity of forms and phenomena that exist in all of creation. 

- Michael Jackson

A part of you...

There's a part of you - the born-again part, your spirit - that's dead to sin. That's why it bothers you now when you sin. The 'wilderness' part of you - your soul - is your unrenewed mind, out-of-control emotions, and stubborn will. 

- Joyce Meyer

In each other..

The minute I heard my first love story, I started looking for you, not knowing how blind that was. Lovers don't finally meet somewhere. They're in each other all along. 
- Rumi

Illusion...

We're born alone, we live alone, we die alone. Only through our love and friendship can we create the illusion for the moment that we're not alone. 
- Orson Welles

Heights and depths...

I feel as though I have lived many lives, experienced the heights and depths of each and like the waves of the ocean, never known rest. Throughout the years, I have looked always for the unusual, for the wonderful, for the mysteries at the heart of life.

-Leni Riefenstahl

Surrender..

        I know you not quite well
Yet I foolishly surrender my mind to you. 
Slowly and carefully you have cast a spell
Now my virgin heart only longs for you. 
There is no need to push, I am already falling. 
Once proudly tall, I’m no longer standing. 
Knowing well that I am doomed to misery,
I will roll the dice and take delight in my suffering.

Remember me...

I don’t care if you never speak to me again as long as you remember me for a lifetime.

The most beautiful people...

“The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity and an understanding of life that fills them with compassions, gentleness, and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen.”
Elizabeth Kubler-Ross

Watching something..

You have a wide array of people that are watching something, and you cannot please everyone at the same time. Half the people will love it; half the people will hate it. Half the people won't see it.

Invisible...

There is a side of the Moon which we never see, but that hidden half is as potent a factor in causing the ebb and flow of the Earth's tide as the part of the Moon which is visible.

Max Heindel

I'm afraid...

        You say you love rain, but you use an umbrella to walk under it. You say you love sun, but you seek shelter when it is shining. You say you love wind, but when it comes you close your windows. So that's why I'm scared when you say you love me.

Hide...

We try to hide our feelings, but we forgot that our eyes can speak.

Beyond thought...

       Beyond thought I reach a state. I refuse to divide it up into words - and what I cannot and do not want to express ends up being the most secret of my secrets. I know that I'm scared of the moments in which I don't use thought and that's a momentary state that is difficult to reach, and which, entirely secret, no longer uses words with which thoughts are produce. Is not using words to lose your identity? is it getting lost in the harmful essential shadows?

Near and far...

He who lives in our mind is near though he may actually be far away; but he who is not in our heart is far though he may really be nearby. 
- Chanakya

Truly beautiful...

Even the handsomest men do not have the same momentary effect on the world as a truly beautiful woman does. 

-Jonathan Carroll

The best for the body and soul...

Possessions, outward success, publicity, luxury - to me these have always been contemptible. I believe that a simple and unassuming manner of life is best for everyone, best for both the body and the mind.

Skillful dancer...

       The sight filled the northern sky; the immensity of it was scarcely conceivable. As if from Heaven itself, great curtains of delicate light hung and trembled. Pale green and rose-pink, and as transparent as the most fragile fabric, and at the bottom edge a profound and fiery crimson like the fires of Hell, they swung and shimmered loosely with more grace than the most skillful dancer.

Some of us only meet....

Some of us only meet in the most fleeting moments; some of us never meet, but still hear about one another and therefore cherish what we know from what we've heard, and mourn the loss, even though we're spared what the close-loved ones must endure - the ongoing pain of an empty place in the heart for the rest of life. 

Mimi Kennedy

Being different...

Sometimes, being different feels a lot like being alone. But with that being said, being true to that and being true to my standards and my way of doing things in my art and my music, everything that has made me feel very different... in the end, it has made me the happiest.

 Lindsey Stirling

Behaving like a Princess...

Behaving like a princess is work. It's not just about looking beautiful or wearing a crown. It's more about how you are inside.

Inner spirit...

In everyone's life, at some time, our inner fire goes out. It is then burst into flame by an encounter with another human being. We should all be thankful for those people who rekindle the inner spirit. - Albert Schweitzer

Love was the key....

"When you were in love, you were capable of learning everything and of knowing things you had never dared even to think, because love was the key to understanding all of the mysteries."
Author: Paulo Coelho

Unspoken..

I've always believed that if you are precise in your thoughts, it's not the lines you say that are important - it's what exists between the lines. What I'm compelled by most is that transparency of thought, what is left unspoken. 

Vera Farmiga

Learning...

Earth and sky, woods and fields, lakes and rivers, the mountain and the sea, are excellent schoolmasters, and teach some of us more than we can ever learn from books.

Beauty secret...

My greatest beauty secret is being happy with myself. I don't use special creams or treatments - I'll use a little bit of everything. It's a mistake to think you are what you put on yourself. I believe that a lot of how you look is to do with how you feel about yourself and your life. Happiness is the greatest beauty secret. 

Tina Turner

You didn't love her..

You didn't love her. You just didn't want to be alone. Or maybe, maybe she was just good for you ego. Or, or maybe she made you feel better about your miserable life, but you didn't love her. Because you don't destroy people you love.
