"One day someone is going to hold you so tight that all the broken pieces will stick back together."
"Remember that sometimes not getting what you want is a wonderful stroke of luck."
Dalai Lama (via elkaland)
"Life will break you. Nobody can protect you from that, and living alone won’t either, for solitude will also break you with its yearning. You have to love. You have to feel. It is the reason you are here on earth. You are here to risk your heart. You are here to be swallowed up. And when it happens that you are broken, or betrayed, or left, or hurt, or death brushes near, let yourself sit by an apple tree and listen to the apples falling all around you in heaps, wasting their sweetness. Tell yourself you tasted as many as you could."
Louise Erdrich, The Painted Drum LP (via psych-facts)
"I am a lover without a lover. I am lovely and lonely and I belong deeply to myself."
