The truth is, everyone is going to hurt you. You just got to find the ones worth suffering for.Bob Marley (via kushandwizdom)
We read to know we’re not alone.William Nicholson (via kushandwizdom)
Let me not to the marriage of true minds
Admit impediments. Love is not love
Which alters when it alteration finds,
Or bends with the remover to remove.
O no, it is an ever-fixed mark
That looks on tempests and is never shaken;
It is the star to every wand’ring barque,
Whose worth’s unknown, although his height be taken.
Love’s not Time’s fool, though rosy lips and cheeks
Within his bending sickle’s compass come;
Love alters not with his brief hours and weeks,
But bears it out even to the edge of doom.
If this be error and upon me proved,
I never writ, nor no man ever loved.
Sometimes when I’m really enjoying a book, I’ll read a sentence or paragraph and just think - how can someone’s head be wired in such a way that they’d come up with that?Joe Abercrombie (via kushandwizdom)
The most important things are the hardest to say. They are the things you get ashamed of, because words diminish them — words shrink things that seemed limitless when they were in your head to no more than living size when they’re brought out. But it’s more than that, isn’t it? The most important things lie too close to wherever your secret heart is buried, like landmarks to a treasure your enemies would love to steal away. And you may make revelations that cost you dearly only to have people look at you in a funny way, not understanding what you’ve said at all, or why you thought it was so important that you almost cried while you were saying it. That’s the worst, I think. When the secret stays locked within not for want of a tellar but for want of an understanding ear.Stephen King (via kushandwizdom)
I’m hoping someday that some kid, black or white, will hit more home runs than myself. Whoever it is, I’d be pulling for him.Hank Aaron (via kushandwizdom)
My daddy said, that the first time you fall in love, it changes you forever and no matter how hard you try, that feeling just never goes away.Nicholas Sparks (via kushandwizdom)
