"But I miss you to the point of anguish. I’d like to see you and have you to myself — just to myself — for a long, long while."
---Simone de Beauvoir, from Letters To Sartre (via violentwavesofemotion)

" You hear nothing but truth from me.—I have blamed you, and lectured you, and you have borne it as no other woman in England would have borne it.—Bear with the truths I would tell you now, dearest Emma, as well as you have borne with them. The manner, perhaps, may have as little to recommend them. God knows, I have been a very indifferent lover.—But you understand me.—Yes, you see, you understand my feelings—and will return them if you can. At present, I ask only to hear, once to hear your voice."

"…I don’t even glance at the herbal teas, I go straight for the real, vile coffee. Jitter in a cup. It cheers me up to know I’ll soon be so tense. I pace among the severed arms and hollow feet, drinking blackness."
---Margaret Atwood, from Cat’s Eye (via violentwavesofemotion)
"Courage is not the absence of fear, but rather the judgement that
something else is more important than fear."

"I have the choice of being constantly active and happy or introspectively passive and sad. Or I can go mad by ricocheting in between."

"Morning without you is a dwindled dawn."
"That’s the whole trouble. You can’t ever find a place that’s nice and peaceful, because there isn’t any. You may think there is, but once you get there, when you’re not looking, somebody’ll sneak up and write Fuck you right under your nose."
"Life will find a way."
--- Michael Crichton, Jurassic Park (via wordsnquotes)
