“I’ve been making a list of the things they don’t teach you at school. They don’t teach you how to love somebody. They don’t teach you how to be famous. They don’t teach you how to be rich or how to be poor. They don’t teach you how to walk away from someone you don’t love any longer. They don’t teach you how to know what’s going on in someone else’s mind. They don’t teach you what to say to someone who’s dying. They don’t teach you anything worth knowing.”—Neil Gaiman (via venebelle)
You like someone, but you’re starting to get attached. & because you’re attached, you are being clingy. & because you are being clingy, you think you are being annoying cause you want to talk to them so much. & because you think you’re being annoying, you feel like you’re bothering them every time you talk to them. But really, you just enjoy talking to them. But you’re afraid they’re getting bored & sick of hearing from you.
“There’s a loneliness that only exists in one’s mind. The loneliest moment in someone’s life is when they are watching their whole world fall apart, and all they can do is stare blankly.”—F. Scott Fitzgerald, The Great Gatsby (via floralnymph)
“The stars are like trees in the forest, alive and breathing. And they’re watching me. What I’ve done up till now, what I’m going to- they know it all. Nothing gets past their watchful eyes. As I sit there under that shining sky, again a violent fear takes hold of me. My heart’s pounding a mile a minute, and I can barely breathe. All these millions of stars looking down on me, and I’ve never given them a passing thought before. Not just stars- how many other things haven’t I noticed in the world, things I know nothing about? I suddenly feel helpless, completely powerless. And I know I’ll never outrun that feeling.”—Kafka on the Shore, Haruki Murakami (via -warmtea)
