“The men who try to do something and fail are infinitely better than those who try to do nothing and succeed.” — Lloyd Jones (via quote-book)
I want a little something more/ Don't want the middle or the one before/ Don't kiss and hug me and then try to run/ I want a love that will last.

She's not much of a sister. She's more like your baby brother. That brother that would tease you and bully you around but would hate the guts of people who would do the same. That brother that would wrestle you and punch you the moment you get home because you haven't been around the whole day. That brother that swore he wouldn't cry when he gets hurt but would bawl once he gets comfortable around your shoulders. That brother that would never admit he'll miss you when you leave but would give you that look that tells you he would. Yes, that same brother who's always the sweetest without saying a word.
“She said, ‘I’m so afraid.’ And I said, ‘Why?’, and she said, ‘because I’m so profoundly happy, Dr. Rasul. Happiness like this is frightening. They only let you be this happy if they’re preparing to take something from you.’” —The Kite Runner (via quote-book)
“She wasn’t bitter. She was sad, though. But it was a hopeful kind of sad. The kind of sad that just takes time.” — The Perks of Being a Wallflower (submitted by creepintomysoul)
“When you start to know someone, all their physical characteristics start to disappear. You begin to dwell in their energy, recognize the scent of their skin. You see only the essence of the person, not the shell. That’s why you can’t fall in love with beauty. You can lust after it, be infatuated by it, want to own it. You can love it with your eyes and your body but not your heart. And that’s why, when you really connect with a person’s inner self, any physical imperfections disappear, become irrelevant.” —Lisa Unger, Beautiful Lies (via kari-shma) (via quote-book)
- Alex: You are in the year of the Shark. Dad's a year of the Whale. I'm a year of the Fishes. Mom's year of the Fishes, too.
- Me: A Shark is a Fish.
- Alex: Oh. You're a year of the...Whale Shark!
- Me: But that's a kind of a Whale.
- Alex: Hmmm...
- Mom: Do you know that a whale isn't a fish?
- Alex: What is it?
- Mom: A Mammal.
- Alex: Oh, I thought it's Abnormal.
“When we first met, I didn’t want to get involved with anyone. I didn’t have the time or energy, and I wasn’t sure that I was ready for it. But you were so good to me, and I got swept up in that. And little by little, I found myself falling in love with you.” —Nicholas Sparks (via kari-shma) (via quote-book)
- Alex: Ate, who's your boyfriend in school?
- Me: You know who he is.
- Alex: Kuya Perj?
- Me: Uh-huh.
- Alex: Ooh... (He's) not working...
- Me: What do you mean?
- Alex: You should finish school before choosing a guy.
It wouldn’t be my world without you in it.
-Blair Waldorf, Gossip Girl
“And in that moment, I swear we were infinite.” —Perks of Being a Wallflower | Stephen Chbosky (via quote-book)
She was a girl who knew how to be happy even when she was sad.

“There is only one page left to write on. I will fill it with words of only one syllable. I love. I have loved. I will love.” —Audrey Niffenegger, The Time Traveler’s Wife (via quote-book)
