“I am the kind of person who would miss a train or a plane to meet you for coffee. I’d take a taxi across town to see you for ten minutes. I’d wait outside all night if I thought you would open the door in the morning. If you call me and say ‘Will you…’ my answer is ‘Yes’, before your sentence is out.”—Jeanette Winterson
Supposedly, we are only to have one soulmate. Well I think we have two. One is your best friend and the other is the love of our life. I think the big difference between the two ultimately is just sex. You can be just as passionate with both but you can only be intimate with the love of your life. You love both but you’re only in love with one.
Basically, your best fucking friend is your soulmate and your other significant other is the love of your life so stop saying you’re so lucky to be in love with your best friend because you can have both as two different people.
“I can get my head turned by a good-looking guy as much as the next girl. But sexy doesn’t impress me. Smart impresses me, strength of character impresses me. But most of all, I am impressed by kindness. Kindness, I think, comes from learning hard lessons well, from falling and picking yourself up. It comes from surviving failure and loss. It implies an understanding of the human condition, forgives its many flaws and quirks. When I see that in someone, it fills me with admiration.”—Lisa Unger, Beautiful Lies (via simply-quotes)
“You tried to change didn’t you? Closed your mouth more. Tried to be softer. Prettier. Less volatile, less awake. But even sleeping you could feel him travelling away from you in his dreams. So what did you want to do? split his head open? You can’t make homes out of human beings. Someone should have already told you that. And if he wants to leave, then let him leave. You are terrifying and strange and beautiful. Something not everyone knows how to love.”—Warsan Shire
Last night, I went out to buy some milk and cereal and first, this old man let me and this other man cut him because we didn’t really have much to buy, which I’m always grateful for when that happens. The guy in front of me starts getting ready to pay for his stuff and the cashier asks, “is that all?” Then he points at my milk and cereal and he says, “and those too please.” I was shocked and confused telling him that he really had no reason to pay for my milk and cereal but all he said was, “it’s called paying it forward.” It wasn’t much but it’s always the little things that count!
Ps. This couldn’t have happened a better day because I couldn’t even find my wallet and yes, I’ve seen the movie Pay It Forward.
