❝ I’m afraid of
a lot of things,
I am afraid of
unraveled by you,
and you finding nothing
you want in here.
❝ …if you’ve been up all night and cried till you have no more tears left in you - you will know that there comes in the end a sort of quietness. You feel as if nothing was ever going to happen again.
C.S. Lewis, The Lion, The Witch, and the Wardrobe

Haruki Murakami, Norwegian Wood

❝ I like to see people reunited, I like to see people run to each other, I like the kissing and the crying, I like the impatience, the stories that the mouth can’t tell fast enough, the ears that aren’t big enough, the eyes that can’t take in all of the change, I like the hugging, the bringing together, the end of missing someone.
❝ He scares the hell out of me and calms my soul at the same time. Maybe that’s what love is—a total contradiction that somehow balances out.
❝ Cigarettes look so harmless but then again so did you.
❝ I have a theory that selflessness and bravery aren’t all that different.
