WORDS AND THOUGHTS ON LOVE - 08112010
“The meeting of two personalities is like the contact of two chemical substances: if there is any reaction, both are transformed.” — Carl Jung
Find a guy who calls you beautiful instead of hot, who calls you back when you hang up on him, who will lie under the stars and listen to your heartbeat, or will stay awake just to watch you sleep… wait for the boy who kisses your forehead, who wants to show you off to the world when you are in sweats, who holds your hand in front of his friends, who thinks you’re just as pretty without makeup on. One who is constantly reminding you of how much he cares and how lucky he is to have you… The one who turns to his friends and says, ‘that’s her.” — Unknown?
“Don’t attach yourself to anyone who shows you the least bit of attention because you’re lonely. Loneliness is the human condition. No one is ever going to fill that space. The best you can do is know yourself… know what you want.”
“The only thing that matters is just following your heart, and eventually you’ll finally get it right.” — The Ataris, In This Diary
“I thought it mattered what I said or where I said it. But then I realized that all that matters is that you make me happier than I’ve ever been and if you let me, I will spend the rest of my life trying to make you feel the same way.” — Friends
I wish I was in a relationship. I wish I was interested in a guy that had the capacity for a relationship. I miss holding hands and long hugs that never end. I miss lying on a guy's chest and just falling asleep, so unbelievably comfortable. I miss the relaxing feeling of melting in a guy's embrace. I miss the power of true love and passion for somebody else.
It's not being in love that makes you happy; it's who you're in love with that does.
“I’m not the silly romantic you think. I don’t want the heavens or the shooting stars. I don’t want gemstones or gold. I have those things already. I want…a steady hand. A kind soul. I want to fall asleep, and wake, knowing my heart is safe. I want to love, and be loved.” - Shana Ab
“You’ll get over it…” It’s the clichés that cause the trouble. To lose someone you love is to alter your life for ever. You don’t get over it because ‘it’ is the person you loved. The pain stops, there are new people, but the gap never loses. How could it? The particularness of someone who mattered enough to grieve over is not made anodyne by death. This hole in my heart is in the shape of you and no one else can fit it. Why would I want them to?” — The PowerBook, Jeanette Winterson
“The greatest happiness in life is knowing that you are loved for who you are, and sometimes in spite of who you are.” — God Wants You to Know
“Have you ever lost someone you love and wanted one more conversation, one more chance to make up for the time when you thought they would be here forever? If so, then you know you can go your whole life collecting days, and none will outweigh the one you wish you had back.” ~ Mitch Albom, For One More Day
