I like cancelled plans. And empty bookstores. I like rainy days and thunderstorms. And quiet coffee shops. I like messy beds and over-worn pajamas. Most of all, I like the small joys that a simple life brings.

When there’s a fresh wound in your heart, keep it open until it heals. Air it out. Understand it. Dive into it. Be fierce enough to become it. If you ignore it, it won’t be able to breath. If you ignore it, it will merely deepen, spread, and resurface later, wanting to release. And when later happens, it will hurt even more, because when later happens, you won’t know what you’re bleeding for … Remain open to feel free.

Be gentle with yourself. You’re doing the best you can.

When I quit smoking, they told me it takes three days to be able to breathe normally again, five days until I’m no longer physically addicted, seven days until there’s no more nicotine in my blood, six months to be entirely clean and fifteen years until the chance of a sudden death due to the consequences of smoking is minimized to 50%.
I wish somebody could tell me how long it would take to be over you, too.

A wise person would have avoided getting involved from the beginning.

You can’t buy the love you want, you can’t sell your love. Love is given by those who deserves it.

I can be changed by what happens to me. But I refuse to be reduced by it.

One of the most courageous decisions you’ll ever make is to finally let go of what is hurting your heart and soul.

Commit to loving yourself completely. It’s the most radical thing you will do in your lifetime.

That’s the beauty of books. In so many ways, they never really end.
