Be swift to love, make haste to be kind

If we will be quiet and ready enough, we shall find compensation in every disappointment.
— Henry David Thoreau (via myquotelibrary)
I love you without knowing how, or when, or from where.
I love you straightforwardly, without complexities or pride;
so I love you because I know no other way than this:
where I does not exist, nor you,
so close that your hand on my chest is my hand,
so close that your eyes close as I fall asleep.
— Sonnet XVII (Pablo Neruda)
They cripple the bird’s wing, and then condemn it for not flying as fast as they.

To fall in love is easy, even to remain in it is not difficult; our human loneliness is cause enough. But it is a hard quest worth making to find a comrade through whose steady presence one becomes steadily the person one desires to be.
— Anna Louise Strong (via myquotelibrary)
The opposite of a bad idea is another bad idea. For example: if you decide it’s wrong to give full vent to my anger and blow up at people. So what I’ll do is act like I’m never angry about anything, like nothing ever bothers me. Well that is a terrible idea too.
Jed Brewer on episode 25 of the Say That podcast
The world is out of its mind with stupidity and the worship of stupidity.
You’re not ridiculous, you’re just a female. It’s what you do, over worry, over think, over analyze, preform actions that seem ridiculous to everyone else, but actually make perfect sense. You just want to make sure you’ve got all the possibilities of things going wrong covered, it’s understandable.

Toughness is in the soul and spirit, not in muscles and an immature mind.
— Alex Karras (via littlemiss)
You may never know what results come of your actions, but if you do nothing, there will be no results.
