'Can we take the long way home?'

Jason F. Wright, from The Cross Gardener (via the-final-sentence)

And silence, like darkness, can be kind; it, too, is a language.

So what if they managed
to put out the candles
in the places where lovers meet;
let us see if they can ever
extinguish the moon…

…one thing you must know, love is infinitely more durable than hate.

Ernest Hemingway, from a letter to Martha Gellhorn (via violentwavesofemotion)

You are a woman. Skin and bones, veins and nerves, hair and sweat. You are not made of metaphors. Not apologies, not excuses.

Sarah Kay  (via maraudersy)

I’m not fascinated by people who smile all the time. What I find interesting is the way people look when they are lost in thought, when their face becomes angry or serious, when they bite their lip, the way they glance, the way they look down when they walk, when they are alone and smoking a cigarette, when they smirk, the way they half smile, the way they try and hold back tears, the way when their face says they want to say something but can’t, the way they look at someone they want or love… I love the way people look when they do these things. It’s… beautiful.
