He’s not perfect. You aren’t either, and the two of you will never be perfect. But if he can make you laugh at least once, causes you to think twice, and if he admits to being human and making mistakes, hold onto him and give him the most you can. He isn’t going to quote poetry, he’s not thinking about you every moment, but he will give you a part of him that he knows you could break. Don’t hurt him, don’t change him, and don’t expect for more than he can give. Don’t analyze. Smile when he makes you happy, yell when he makes you mad, and miss him when he’s not there. Love hard when there is love to be had. Because perfect guys don’t exist, but there’s always one guy that is perfect for you.
Bob Marley (via kushandwizdom)
Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it.
Rumi (via thecalminside)
An artist from Oakland, California collects trash and makes tiny mobile homes for the homeless.
so this is pretty incredible
Love, she thought, must come suddenly, with great outbursts and lightnings,—a hurricane of the skies, which falls upon life, revolutionises it, roots up the will like a leaf, and sweeps the whole heart into the abyss.
Gustave Flaubert, Madame Bovary (via wordsnquotes)
I only write when I am falling in love, or falling apart.
e.s. (via selectables)
you are pretending to be patched up
you miss her as if her absence
is a bright hole in your life, a blinding truth
that is ruining you
in late nights your skin
soaks with sweat and in desperation,
your mouth works over her name
and your words come unglued
as you plead with her ghost
in your dreams
and in all this time
i’ve never heard you say
"“I know he loves me, and he says he is over her, but she’s everything I’m not, and everything I never will be." /// r.i.d (via inkskinned)
