"Sometimes not being in control is the most beautiful thing in the world."
"That's the best revenge of all: happiness. Nothing drives people crazier than seeing someone have a good fucking life."
- Chuck Palahniuk
It's those moments when you drive around in a car full of friends around a town too small for you. You gasp for breath between laughs. It's those moments where you get high off just breathing in so deep, you feel your lung starting to get cold. for a second, that one split second, you don't care at all. you don't care about school, about parents or about money, about rules, or broken hearts. who you care about are the kids sitting next to you. cause it's all we really need isn't it? those kids next to you, the ones who make you feel invincible even at your weakest points.
"I suffer from girlnextdooritis where the guy is friends with you and thats it."
I would rather fight with you, then make love to anyone else.
I gave up trying to figure out
what it means when you look that way.
there are six billion people in the world. Of those, there
is at least one for you. Maybe you'll meet in a qaint, little
coffee shop, or your favorite bookstore. No matter what,
there is someone out there, looking for you just like you are looking for them.
do not regret having lost yesterday...
do not fear that you will lose tomorrow.

I think it is a matter of love: the more you love a memory, the stranger and stronger it is.

the prettiest people do the ugliest things.
My dream is to walk around the world. A smallish backpack,
all essentials neatly in place. A camera. A notebook. A traveling
paint set. A hat. Good shoes. A nice pleated skirt for the occassional
seaside hotel afternoon dance.
Because someone doesn't love you the way you want
doesn't mean that they don't love you with all they have.
"And what's so wrong with living in a dream world?"
"Well, one day your gonna have to wake up."
the real lover is the man who can thrill you by kissing
your forehead or smiling into your eyes, or just staring into space.

The important thing is not to be be bitter over life's disappointments.
Learn to let go of the past and recognize that every day won't be sunny and
when you find yourself in the darkness of dispair, remember - it's only
in the black of night that you see the stars and those stars lead you back
home. So don't be afraid to make mistakes, to stumble and fall because
most of the time, the greatest rewards come from doing things that scare
you the most. Maybe you'll get everything you wished for. Maybe you'll
get more than you ever could have imagined. Who knows where live will take you?
"If I had a world of my own, everything would be nonsense. Nothing
would be what it is, because everything would be what it isn't. And
contrary wise, what is, wouldn't be, And what it wouldn't be, it would. You see?
- Alice in Wonderland
The essence of life is not being perfect, impressing people, or
succeeding at everything. The essence of life is simply making
mistakes and learning from them, surrounding yourself with
people that love you when your being yourself, and getting through
the failures so you can continue succeeding.
- Lauren Purdy
"If I find in myself desires which nothing in this world
can satisfy, the only logical explanation is that I was
made for another world."

When you've finally found someone good,
don't go looking for someone better.
it was... odd. his blue eyes met with my brown ones,
and we didn't look away. for a moment, we were
caught in this awkward staring thing. then he did the
most perfect thing; when he looked away, he smiled
I always knew that the perfect guy was out there. I've known since I was a kid and Barbie married Ken. Ken might pretend to like Barbie's best friend to make Barbie jealous, and Barbie might move to Portugal just to see if Ken would follow her, but in the end, they were always together and everything was forgiven. The thing is, the game always ended after Barbie and Ken got together, so I never really knew what would happen once I met the guy I wanted to spend the rest of my life with. I figured I'd want the rest of my life to start right away, but I also kind of thought it would be like living in one of those invisible boxes mimes always pretend to be trapped in. People can see you and know some kind of force field surrounds you, but they can't tap into it or break it. Our love would be our mime box
This is for you, my best friend. The one person I can tell my soul to, who can relate to me like no other, who I can laugh with to no extent, who I can cry to when times are tough, who can help me with the problems of my life. Never have you turned your back on me or told me I wasn't good enough or let me down. I don't think you know what that means to me. You have gone through so much pain and you still have time for me and I love you for listening even when you're dying inside. And I look up to you because you're strong, and caring, and beautiful, even though you don't think you are. And I hope you know that I'm always here to listen to you laugh and cry and help in all the ways that I can, and I will try to be at least half the friend you are to me. I hope you know I would not be the person I am today without you, my best friend. Thanks for being the friend who's always believed in me, who's always understood, who's always accepted me, who's always cared.
We tend to forget that happiness doesn’t come as a result of getting something we don’t have, but rather of recognizing and appreciating what we do have.

What do you mean 'find love'?
It's love that finds you.
Rule number one is, don't sweat the small stuff.
Rule number two is, it's all small stuff.
Memories were fine, but you couldn't touch them, smell them, or hold them.
They were never exactly as the moment had been, and they faded with time.
you can tell a lot about people
by the way they handle four things:
a rainy day, the elderly
lost luggage, and tangled christmas lights
The way you make me feel is like, Smelling fresh cut grass or being in the back of a convertable under the stars. Or returning home from a long trip or just driving with no destination in the summer. It's like the feeling you get when you get an ‘A’ on your report card and your parents tell you how proud they are. Or when you hear your family laugh together or the whooshing of a tunnel when you drive with the windows down. It's like when you’re outside on a hot summer day and you have a cold glass of water or when you talk to an old friend after a month or two, yet the two of you are still as close as ever. It's like the feeling you get when you hear your favorite childhood song on the radio for the first time in years, you turn it up and feel so alive. Or laying in bed watching a snow storm, knowing you don’t have to get up for hours and get just lay in the warmth of your comforters for hours. Its the way your stomache flip flops during your first true kiss, or how your body feels when you take off in an airplane for the first time. Or when you drive around in the front seat of car who belongs to the boy you like, and even though you should feel scared beyond control because he's driving so fast and stupid, yet you feel so safe and alive. Yeah, that feeling. The way you make me feel, feels good to me
whatever you want to do. do it now.
for life is time, and time is all there is.
And she sat there for hours thinking and recollecting on how things used to be. And she laughed, and she cried. And she couldn't help but think of what she wouldn't do to get them back to that way once again, when her life actually had a purpose
Love isn't about the romantic nights or gifts. It isn't about fireworks going off around you when you have that first, real, kiss. Love isn't about kissing in the rain and dancing beneath the stars. It isn't about the big moments or the big surprises. Love is not a fairy tale. Love is about still having the butterflies after years. It's about the second looks and laying in bed wide awake, all night, because you can't go to sleep mad at each other.It's about being willing to sacrifice, literally, everything for someone, just because you care so deeply for them. It's not about buying them gifts, but it's about leaving them little presents here and there, just to remind them that you are constantly thinking about them. Love is about all of the things, that add up to really big things. Love is rare and special, but should not be treated as if it will break. Love needs to be thrown around and beat up a little bit, worn in, but not worn down. Love needs to be a comfortable feeling, a place to go when no one else in the world can relate. A safe place, where you know that no matter how ugly you look or how angry you are,
you will still be loved
A man who wants to make a relationship work will move mountains to
keep the woman he loves. If he's not calling you to tell you
he loves you and wants you back, it should only be because
he's showing up at your new residence to do it in person...
If he's not doing any of that, he may love you,
he may miss you, but ultimately he's just not that into you.
Stop taking his calls and let him know what it's like to live without you."
- He's Just Not That Into You
if a person is single, it doesn't really
mean that he/she knows nothing about
love. In fact, going solo is a lot wiser
than being in a wrong relationship
he will chase you around for a while;
but there’s going to be that day when
he’s going to stop running in circles
around you & at that
very moment you're
going to wish you had let him catch you..
the bad guys lie to get into your bed,
but the good guys lie to get into your heart
what if we already met the right person,
weren’t ready to fall in love..
because even though those kids
didn't talk to her
anymore, she still missed them. she missed them
because she grew up with them, and you can't
just forget people like that.
when people walk away from you, let them walk.
don't try to talk another person into staying
with you, loving you, calling you, caring for you,
coming to see you, or staying attached to you.
when people can walk away, let them walk.
your destiny is
never tied to anybody that left.
falling in love, you should go with it.
whether or not your heart gets
smashed. you'll end up being a better person
"I do not love you as if you were salt-rose, or topaz, or the arrow of carnations the fire shoots off. I love you as certain dark things are to be loved in secret. between the shadow and the soul. I love you as the plant that never blooms, but carries in itself the light of hidden flowers. Thanks to your love a certain solid fragrance, risen from the earth, lives darkly in my body. I love you without knowing how, or when, or from where. I love you straightforwardly, without complexities or pride; so I love you because I know no other way than this: Where I do not exist, nor you. So close that your hand on my chest is my hand. So close that your eyes close as I fall asleep."
"And at some point I’ll call you and tell you I miss you. And tell you, you are the point of my day. And my face will get flushed and my throat will choke up when you tell me that you feel the same."
"The unreal is more powerful than the real, because nothing is as perfect as you can imagine it. Because its only intangible ideas, concepts, beliefs, fantasies that last. Stone crumbles. Wood rots. People, well, they die. But things as fragile as a thought, a dream, a legend, they can go on and on."
"Sometimes there doesn't even have to be a reason. I knew from experience that no matter how much you turn things in your head, trying to make sense of them, some people just defy all logic."
++ Sarah Dessen : Keeping the Moon
love of mine, someday you will die. but i'll be close behind, i'll follow you into the dark. no blinding light or tunnels to gates of white- just our hands clasped so tight, waiting for the hint of a spark.
"i don't know if you've ever felt like that. that you wanted to sleep for a thousand years. or just not exist. or just not be aware that you do exist. or something like that. i think wanting that is very morbid, but i want it when i get like this. that's why i'm trying not to think. i just want it all to stop spinning."
-the perks of being a wallflower.
you don't get to choose, you just fall in love and
you get this person who is all wrong and all right
at the same time. and you know you love him so
much except sometimes he drives you completely
insane. and the reason it's so confusing is
cause it's love. because if love didn't have
challenges, what would be the point?
"Do not spoil what you have by desiring what you have not; remember
that what you now have was once among the things you only hoped for"
Do one thing everyday that scares you.
Until you make peace with who you are
you'll never be content with what you have.
Like I've said before:
if it's meant to be, it's because you made it be.
The best feeling someone can have is love, and what more is worth fighting for than that? It's about going through tough times and rough patches together. Nothing worth while is ever easy to come across. The minute you feel any hardship you don't just drop them and let go. You give it your best and continue trying to go on strong.
What do I wear in bed?
Why, Chanel No. 5 of course
"A wise friend of mine said these
words to me: real love is about trying."
I'll find what I'm looking for someday.
and I think the best feeling ever is feeling alive.
Sometimes when I look at you, and you're looking back at me, I can see something. This teeny-tiny hint of something more, something you're feeling but can't say. When our eyes meet, it's like we're instantly connected. And I know no one catches it but me and you, but I like it that way. It's like our own little secret...a place we go to when everything around us is crazy and we just need some semblance of normal. God, your eyes are gorgeous. There are times when I want nothing more than to look you in the eyes, cause it's when we're looking at each other in silence that we end up saying the most
there are moments that mark your life,
when you realize nothing will be the same again,
and the time is divided into two parts;
before this and after this
I don't care how you get to me.
Just Get To Me.
