❝ There was so much in you that charmed me that I felt I must tell you something about yourself. I thought how tragic it would be if you were wasted.
Oscar Wilde, The Picture of Dorian Gray (via man-of-prose)
❝ I let it go. It’s like swimming against the current. It exhausts you. After a while, whoever you are, you just have to let go, and the river brings you home.

❝ I’m afraid of
a lot of things,
but mostly,
most sincerely,
I am afraid of
being completely
unraveled by you,
and you finding nothing
you want in here.

❝ You were so nice to me when I was having my problems, but now that you’re having yours, it seems there’s not a thing I can do for you. You’re all locked up in that little world of yours, and when I try knocking on the door, you just sort of look up for a second and go right back inside.

Jonathan Safran Foer
