‘If the girl had been worth having

 she’d have waited for you?’ 

No, sir, the girl really worth having won’t wait for anybody.

 F. Scott Fitzgerald, This Side of Paradise

I love those who can smile in trouble, 

who can gather strength from distress, and grow brave by reflection. 

‘Tis the business of little minds to shrink, but they whose heart is firm, and whose conscience approves their conduct, will pursue their principles unto death.'

Leonardo da Vinci

Love without attachment is the purest love 

because it isn’t about what others can give you because you’re empty. 

It is about what you can give others because you are already full.

Despite what you may believe, you can disappoint people and still be good enough. 
You can make mistakes and still be capable and talented. 
You can let people down and still be worthwhile and deserving of love. 
Everyone has disappointed someone they care about. 
Everyone messes up, lets people down, and makes mistakes. 
Not because we’re inadequate or fundamentally inept, 
but because we’re imperfect and fundamentally human. 
Expecting anything different is setting yourself up for failure.

Love never dies a natural death. It dies because we don’t know how to replenish its source. It dies of blindness and errors and betrayals. 
It dies of illness and wounds; 
it dies of weariness, of witherings, of tarnishings.

The suffering itself is not so bad; 

it’s the resentment against suffering that is the real pain.

All changes, even the most longed for, have their melancholy; 
for what we leave behind us is a part of ourselves; 
we must die to one life before we can enter another.
Anatole France


Perhaps you’re looking for a path without realizing that real life is more like 

a network of branches from a tree, and that you can go through on any of the branches 

and that there isn’t really a right one. 

And some of them break, but that doesn’t really matter. 

If you’re looking for the one right true way, 

everything’s always gonna feel slightly wrong.

Nigella Lawson 

Some of us find it more vulnerable to give. 
Some of us find it more vulnerable to receive. 
Both tendencies can actually be control mechanisms- by always giving, 
we never have to actually take in another’s love;
 by always receiving, we never have to risk someone rejecting our love. 
The healthier relationships are those where we can celebrate and be celebrated, 
where we can love and be loved. 
A mutual appreciation society with everyone’s heart on their sleeves.
How beauty-full is that.

the light is no mystery, the mystery is that there is something 
to keep the light from passing through.

Every place is within walking distance; 
people are the ones out of reach.
