" Junot Díaz, This Is How You Lose Her (via quotes-shape-us)
You must learn her.
You must know the reason why she is silent. You must trace her weakest spots. You must write to her. You must remind her that you are there. You must know how long it takes for her to give up. You must be there to hold her when she is about to.
You must love her because many have tried and failed. And she wants to know that she is worthy to be loved, that she is worthy to be kept.
And, this is how you keep her."
"I think we dream so we don’t have to be apart for so long. If we’re in each other’s dreams, we can be together all the time." A.A. Milne, Winnie-the-Pooh (via kushandwizdom)
"You’ve got to use it, the pain. Use it as fuel to move past the torment, to the light at the end of the tunnel." Thomas E. Sniegoski, Aerie and Reckoning (via larmoyante)

"I think…if it is true that there are as many minds as there are heads, then there are as many kinds of love as there are hearts." Anna Karenina, Leo Tolstoy (via larmoyante)
"As a doctor, let me tell you what self-love does: Dr. Christiane Northrop, Hungry for Change (via larmoyante)
It improves your hearing, your eyesight, lowers your blood pressure, increases pulmonary function, cardiac output, and helps wiring the musculature. So, if we had a rampant epidemic of self-love then our healthcare costs would go down dramatically. So, this isn’t just some little frou-frou new age notion, oh love yourself honey. This is hardcore science."
