I like the sea: we understand one another. It is always yearning, sighing for something it cannot have; and so am I.
Greta Garbo (via aestheticintrovert)

Yes. Yes and you.

Yes. Yes and you.

Loneliness smells like cinnamon and cherries cooking in a pot, I fancy a gentleman tipped his hat to me and offered me tea and his arm. I think I want a life in woolly sweaters, to cut birds out of apples and play chess on stormy nights, with the stars painted on the ceiling above us. I’d like to be taught to play the accordion, think how nice it would be in a house on rails, a train compartment in beige and red. Oh, I got lost inside my head again, I shouldn’t, I shouldn’t.
Vera Vodak (via awelltraveledwoman)
And if you don’t try at anything you can’t fail… It takes backbone to lead the life you want.
Richard Yates, Revolutionary Road (via misswallflower)
What I feel for you can’t be conveyed in phrasal combinations; It either screams out loud or stays painfully silent but I promise — it beats words. It beats worlds. I promise.
Katherine Mansfield, The Collected Stories (via girlinlondon)

Silas House, A Parchment of Leaves

A good relationship is when two people accept each other’s past, support each other’s present, and love each other enough to encourage each other’s future. So don’t rush love. Find a partner who encourages you to grow, who won’t cling to you, who will let you go out into the world, and trust that you will come back. This is what true love is all about.
