I have infinite tenderness for you, and I will my whole life.
How to kill someone;
Hold their hand and then never touch their skin again,
See them nearly everyday and pretend they don’t exist,
Act like everything you ever said to them was a lie.
I opened my mouth, almost said something. Almost. The rest of my life might have turned out differently if I had. But I didn’t.
The Kite Runner (Khaled Hosseini)
I choked on words that I was too scared to swallow nor brave enough to speak
When someone is crying, of course, the noble thing to do is to comfort them. But if someone is trying to hide their tears, it may also be noble to pretend you do not notice them.
Don’t be afraid to give up the good and go for the great.
Sometimes you find yourself in the middle of nowhere, and sometimes in the middle of nowhere, you find yourself.
Good people are like candles; they burn themselves up to give others light
Sometimes what you’re most afraid of doing is the very thing that will set you free.
