“Sometimes when I look at you, I feel as if I’m gazing at a distant star. It’s dazzling, but the light is from tens of thousands of years ago. Maybe the star doesn’t even exist anymore. Yet sometimes that light seems more real to me than anything.”—Haruki Murakami, South of the Border, West of the Sun (via quotewhore)
“… so he shall never know how much I love him: and that, not because he is handsome, but because he is more myself than I am. Whatever our souls are made of, his and mine are the same.”—Wuthering Heights
“Lightning doesn’t often strike twice. It’s a once in a lifetime thing. Even if it feels like the shock is coming over and over again. Eventually the pain will go away, the shock will wear off. And you start to heal yourself. To recover from something you never saw coming. But, sometimes the odds are in your favor. If you’re in just the right place at just the right time you can take a helluva hit. And still have a shot at surviving.”—Meredith Grey.
