“When you are attracted to people, it’s because of the details. Their kindness. Their eyes. The fact that they can get you to laugh when you need it the most.”—Jodi Picoult, Sing You Home (via dingyfeathers)
“Mental pain is less dramatic than physical pain, but it is more common and also more hard to bear. The frequent attempt to conceal mental pain increases the burden: it is easier to say ‘My tooth is aching’ than to say ‘My heart is broken.’”—C. S. Lewis, The Problem of Pain (via godmoves)
It’s a big word for me.
I feel it everywhere.
Almost, but not quite.
I’m hoping hard for that.”—~ Joan Bauer, Almost Home (via thatkindofwoman)
