“love is always bestowed as a gift – freely, willingly, and without expectation … we don’t love to be loved; we love to love.” – leo buscaglia
“…sometimes i will be struck with a kind of awe that we’re together. that someone like me could find someone like you – it renders me wordless. because surely words would conspired against such luck, would protest the unlikelihood of such a turn of events… i would be overwhelmed by the evidence, by all the lines connecting you to me, and us to love.” – david levithan [thanks to kylie]
dear future husband,
sometimes it’s nice to hear things that i already know. even if you already show it with your actions, it is nice to sometimes have it spelt out. this can be accomplished through texts, emails, letters, phone calls, or just whispered sweet nothings.
“You can never really know someone completely. That’s why it’s the most terrifying thing in the world, really—taking someone on faith, hoping they’ll take you on faith too. It’s such a precarious balance. It’s a wonder we do it at all. And yet…” -libbra bray
“well, i like to eat, sleep, drink, and be in love.” – langston hughes
