“No matter how thick skinned we try to be, there’s millions of electrifying nerve endings in there, open and exposed and feeling way too much. Try as we might to keep from feeling pain, sometimes it’s just unavoidable. Sometimes that’s the only thing left… just feeling.”—Meredith Grey (via julie911) (via quote-book)
“The better you learn to take care of yourself, the less you settle for being around people who can’t or won’t treat you as well as you’re accustomed.”—Curtis Sittenfeld (via justbesplendid) (via quote-book)
“You know that place between sleep and awake?
The place where you can still remember dreaming.
That’s where I’ll always love you.

“Everyone makes choices in life. Some bad, some Good. It’s called living, and if you want to bow out, then go right ahead. But don’t do it halfway. Don’t linger in whiner’s limbo.”—Maria V. Snyder (via thresca) (via quote-book)
“Every one of Joel’s important songs—including the happy ones—are ultimately about loneliness. And it’s not ‘clever lonely’ (like Morrissey) or ‘interesting lonely’ (like Radiohead); it’s ‘lonely lonely,’ like the way it feels when you’re being hugged by someone and it somehow makes you sadder.”— Chuck Klosterman (Sex, Drugs, and Cocoa Puffs: A Low Culture Manifesto) (via interplanetaryparty)
“Thinking, boy, is something you should get in the habit of making use of more often—it helps in everything. Everything but love, that is. Love is a sort of seventh day, so that thinking can rest.”—Merlin (from the 1967 film, Camelot) (via elicec) (via quote-book)
“If I like you, that means at least one of these things: you are disinterested, I am scared to admit I like you so I am not going to call you back, I will write about the possibility of us everywhere, I will email my best friend about your voice, you are not single, you don’t know my name, I really have to know what your favorite sort of music is, I like to eat green apples and think of you, you are not my type but I like your t-shirt (and your eyelashes), I am an idiot, you are beautiful, I really want to call you, I didn’t see you today so I am going to yell at everyone, you are miles away, I am desperate, you don’t even know me, I wonder if you would ever like to wake up next to me, I want you for my birthday.”—
“If you detect even an inkling of happiness, a tiny glimpse of love, a mere hint of contentment, for heaven’s sake grab it and don’t let go. Don’t ever think twice.”—“Chloe” by Freya North (submitted by technicolora) (via quote-book)
“It’s like Luke is driving a car, ok? And I just want to be in the passenger seat, but he’s locked the door so I have to hold on to the bumper, you know? I’m not even asking him to open the door for me, I just want him to leave it unlocked and say “come in” but no, he didn’t do that. So, I’m hanging onto the bumper and life goes on and the car goes on and I get really badly bruised and hitting pot holes and it hurts. I mean, it hurts. So yesterday I had to let go of the bumper…because it hurts too much. It hurts too much.”—Lorelai Gilmore (talking about her breakup with Luke) (via everykindoflight)
