❝ Never chase love, affection or attention. If it isn’t given freely by another person, it isn’t worth having.
❝ I totally remember what it felt like to be so full…Full of promise, full of dreams, full of shit. Mostly just full of yourself. So full you’re bursting. And then you get out into the world, and people empty you out, little by little, like air from a balloon…You try like hell to fill yourself up with fresh air, from you and from other people. But back then…it was so damn effortless to feel full, you know? All you had to do was breathe.
— Jonathan Tropper
❝ Sometimes I think that’s the biggest loss of all - not having someone who’d abandon common sense and dignity on your behalf.
— Maxine Gray
❝ I think I wanted it too much and you didn’t want it enough.
❝ I taste her and realize I have been starving.
I have loved before, but it didn’t feel like this.
I have kissed before, but it didn’t burn me alive.
— Jodi Picoult: Sing You Home
❝ Nema prijatnijeg osjećanja na svijetu nego kad srce poslije jedne pauze ravnodušnosti ponovo zatreperi od ljubavi.
❝ Whatever makes you happy, you put in your world.
❝ I knew you before I met you. I knew your cheeks would be made of sunshine. I knew rays of light would spill from your lips with your every smile. I knew you.
Sometimes you look at me and you ask me what I’m thinking. I smile, and I say “Nothing.” Truly, though, it is something. It’s the most beautiful something I’ve ever known.
— C: How Do You Take Your Coffee?
❝ The best portion of your life will be the small, nameless moments you spend smiling with someone who matters to you.
❝ i mislim, prvi poljubac nakon takvog gledanja mora bit ljepši i od heroina u venama…
It’s that thing when you’re with someone and you love them and they know it and they love you and you know it but it’s a party and you’re both talking to other people and you’re laughing and shining and you look across the room and catch each other’s eyes. But not because you’re possessive, or it’s precisely sexual, but because that is your person in this life and it’s funny and sad but only because this life will end and it’s this secret world that exists right there. In public. Unnoticed. That no one else knows about. It’s sort of like how they say that other dimensions exist all around us but we don’t have the ability to perceive them. That’s what I want out of a relationship. Or just life, I guess.
- Frances Ha
❝ You smell good. It’s… it’s nice to breathe you in again. I missed it.
— Alexia Purdy: Breathe Me
❝ Sometimes I remind myself that I almost skipped the party, that I almost went to a different college, that the whim of a minute could have changed everything and everyone. Our lives, so settled, so specific, are built on happenstance.
— Anna Quindlen: Every Last One
❝ I think I’m in love with missing you more than I’m in love with you.
❝ I kada jednom odlučim da odem ..
Neće mi nedostajati ni tvoj osmjeh, ni glas, ni pogled.
Nećeš mi ti nedostajati ..
Nedostajat ću sebi onakav kakvog si me ti činila.
