not the same man...

"a person that speaks his mind; he's sensitive enough to care for children; he's wise enough to not be put into the 'whack' category like everybody else in town - and he looooves the ladies". -Isaac hayes describing Chef from South Park
Why am I so changed? Why does my blood rush into a hell of tumult at a few words?
Emily Brontë, from Wuthering Heights (via violentwavesofemotion)
And we ourselves, what do we oppose, with this random flicker of light in us that we call brain and feeling, how can we do battle against this flood; what has permanence? Our lives too stream away, down the unlighted avenues, past the strip of time, unidentified.
Virginia Woolf, from The Waves (via violentwavesofemotion)

My love for you is a combination of feelings I understand, and feelings I can not explain.

But all they want to do
is tie the poem to a chair with rope
and torture a confession out of it.

They begin beating it with a hose
to find out what it really means.

Billy Collins, from “Introduction to Poetry” (via fables-of-the-reconstruction)

You deserve someone who knows how to make things up to you after hurting you. Not someone who is very good with just the word “sorry.”
Unknown (via drapetomania)

While gazing at myself from yourself, I was beautiful.

Can’t give up acting tough
It’s all that I’m made of
Can’t scrape together quite enough
To ride the bus to the outskirts of the fact that I need love.

What a terrible mistake to let go of something wonderful for something real.
Miranda July, No One Belongs Here More Than You  (via dieworten)

Be a true representative of the goodness in your heart, and don’t expect it to be easy or even noticed.
The opportunity for significant change is available each and every single day.
Gabriella Morrison (via Jordan Dansky & huffpo)
You shall love your crooked neighbour, with your crooked heart.
W.H. Auden (via observando)

(via largerloves)

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.

Some men
all their lives
to find
their muse.
Some men
find them
but still then
find themselves

I promise to plant kisses like seeds on your body, so in time you can grow to love yourself as I love you.
