“I was always hungry for love. Just once, I wanted to know what it was like to get my fill of it — to be fed so much love I couldn’t take any more. Just once.” ~ Haruki Murakami, Norwegian Wood "But I can be alone without Yoko, but I just have no wish to be. There’s no reason on earth why I should be alone without Yoko. There’s nothing more important than our relationship, nothing. And we dig being together all the time. Both of us could survive apart but what for? I’m not going to sacrifice love, real love for any whore or any friend or any business, because in the end you’re alone at night and neither of us want to be. and you can’t fill a bed with groupies. It doesn’t work. I don’t want to be a swinger. I’ve been through it all and nothing works better than to have someone you love hold you." ~ John Lennon, to interviewer upon being asked why he can't be alone without Yoko. "Compassion is a human trait, not a religious one. I respect the compassion of the priest and the monk." http://www.reddit.com/r/atheism/comments/or4it/they_say_reddit_is_a_scum_for_voting_a_picture_of/c3jd6ba "I am not the happiest person. In fact, in the battle between joy and misery, I'd say that the latter often seems to prevail. I don't like this, and every day I refuse for the eighty millionth time, to put up with another minute of it. But the world does what it does, and I often find it disagreeable. After all these years, I'm kind of resigned to that. But I do have one thing on my side: I have enormous faith. And hope. I am not speaking of the kind you find in church or in the afterlife or in heaven or in the Saint James Bible or in the Hare Krishna's that we all encounter changing flights in the airports of the world, I am speaking of a simple faith that says that one way or another, no matter how many times I stumble and stub my big toe, somehow life is going to work itself out." ~ Elizabeth Wurtzel “She stood, in a room of crumbling plaster, pressed to the window-pane, looking up at the unattainable form of every-thing she loved. She did not know the nature of her lone-liness. The only words that named it were: This is not the world I expected.” ~ Ayn Rand, "Atlas Shrugged" "I wish I could show you when you are lonely or in darkness the astonishing light of your own being." ~ Hafiz of Persia "It doesn’t make sense to call ourselves ugly, because we don’t really see ourselves. We don’t watch ourselves sleeping in bed, curled up and silent with chests rising and falling with our own rhythm. We don’t see ourselves reading a book, eyes fluttering and glowing. You don’t see yourself looking at someone with love and care inside your heart. There’s no mirror in your way when you’re laughing and smiling and happiness is leaking out of you. You would know exactly how bright and beautiful you are if you saw yourself in the moments where you are truly yourself." ~ @celestialsweet.tumblr.com “Nothing hurts a good soul and the kind heart more than to live amongst people who can’t understand it.” ~ Ali Ibn Abi Talib “I can get my head turned by a good-looking guy as much as the next girl. But sexy doesn’t impress me. Smart impresses me, strength of character impresses me. But most of all, I am impressed by kindness. Kindness, I think, comes from learning hard lessons well, from falling and picking yourself up. It comes from surviving failure and loss. It implies an understanding of the human condition, forgives its many flaws and quirks. When I see that in someone, it fills me with admiration.” ~ Lisa Unger, Beautiful Lies "That’s all anyone wants from anyone else, not love itself but the knowledge that love is there." ~ Jonathan Safran Foer
