“We are as forlorn as children lost in the woods. When you stand in front of me and look at me, what do you know of the griefs that are in me and what do I know of yours. And if I were to cast myself down before you and weep and tell you, what more would you know about me than you know about Hell when someone tells you it is hot and dreadful? For that reason alone we human beings ought to stand before one another as reverently, as reflectively, as lovingly, as we would before the entrance to Hell.”—FRANZ KAFKA; Letter to Oskar Pollak (via cuandoestoyaburrida)
“You know that feeling when you’re just waiting, waiting to get home into your room, close the door, fall into bed, and just let out everything that you have kept in all day? Nothing is wrong, but nothing is right either, and you’re tired, tired of everything, tired of nothing, and you just want someone to be there and tell you it’s okay, but no one’s going to be there. And you know you have to be strong for yourself because no one can fix you. But you’re tired of waiting, tired of having to be the one to fix yourself and everyone else, tired of being strong, and for once, you just want it to be easy, to be simple, to be helped, to be saved, but you know you won’t be, but you’re still hoping and you’re still wishing and you’re still staying strong and fighting with tears in your eyes. You’re fighting.”—(via runawaytrain)
“Demons run when a good man goes to war
Night will fall and drown the sun
When a good man goes to war
Friendship dies and true love lies
Night will fall and the dark will rise
When a good man goes to war
Demons run, but count the cost
The battle’s won, but the child is lost,
When a good man goes to war.”—Doctor Who, 6.07, A Good Man Goes to War (via tumbletower)
love is like a fuzzy elephant, running to us with a hug. a hug where one gets lost in and all impurities and hurt melt away.
we may ignore or push away love, but it keeps coming back and tries to give us a warm fuzzy hug.
we may kick it, hurt it, or break it into pieces but it does not complain. love cannot complain because love surrenders its rights. even if it begins to look like an idiot.
but when that fuzzy elephant has been chopped up and broken once and for all, we realize that there is no one chasing us anymore and would shame-facedly admit we miss it. and in all thats left behind, we understand what loneliness is.
“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.”—Jonathan Safran Foer (Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close)
“I love you also means I love you more than anyone loves you, or has loved you, or will love you, and also, I love you in a way that no one loves you, or has loved you, or will love you, and also, I love you in a way that I love no one else, and never have loved anyone else, and never will love…
“…but it’s so painful to think, and tell me, what did thinking ever do for me, to what great place did thinking ever bring me? I think and think and think, I’ve thought myself out of happiness one million times, but never once into it.”—Oskar Schell in Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close - Jonathan Safran Foer (via dreamscribbler)
“She wants to know if I love her, that’s all anyone wants from anyone else, not love itself but the knowledge that love is there, like new batteries in the flashlight in the emergency kit in the hall closet.”—Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close, Jonathan Safran Foer (via lapetit-mort)
“I thought about all of the things that everyone ever says to each other, and how everyone is going to die, whether it’s in a millisecond, or days, or months, or 76.5 years, if you were just born. Everything that’s born has to die, which means our lives are like skyscrapers. The smoke rises at different speeds, but they’re all on fire, and we’re all trapped.”—Jonathan Safran Foer, Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close (via itsatossupp)
actually in my opinion, the more you love someone, it is important to know how much you deserve and how much you as a person should take. this may be considered selfish but I think love for oneself is more important than love for someone. you know, love the way you lie, the song,
i think that it is important to know the line between that? that is just me. I will never accept a love like that too damaging and what for too? Life is so short and we only have this one life to lead.
“I’ve heard it said That people come into our lives for a reason Bringing something we must learn And we are led To those who help us most to grow If we let them And we help them in return Well, I don’t know if I believe that’s true But I know I’m who I am today Because I knew you”
