"If your feelings are still what they were last April, tell me so at once. My affections and wishes have not changed, but one word from you will silence me forever. If, however, your feelings have changed, I would have to tell you: you have bewitched me, body and soul, and I love… I love… I love you. And I never wish to be parted from you from this day on."
Mr. Darcy to Elizabeth (Pride and Prejudice)
"Travel. As much as you can. As far as you can. As long as you can. Life’s not meant to be lived in one place."
"If I told you
How many times
I’ve sat alone
On the shower floor,
You’d cry too."
"I love you, so promise you’ll be like the ocean and come back to me, even when they pull you away. Always come back to me"
"Do stuff. Be clenched, curious. Not waiting for inspiration’s shove or society’s kiss on your forehead. Pay attention. It’s all about paying attention. Attention is vitality. It connects you with others. It makes you eager. Stay eager."
