After all, damn it, what does being in love mean if you can’t trust a person.
Evelyn Waugh, Vile Bodies (via quoted-books)
We cross our bridges when we come to them and burn them behind us, with nothing to show for our progress except a memory of the smell of smoke, and a presumption that once our eyes watered.
Tom Stoppard, Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead (via quoted-books)
Remember that everyone you meet is afraid of something, loves something and has lost something.
H. Jackson Brown Jr. (via thatkindofwoman)

And that’s when I understand that I have been stained. Whether I’m still in love with him, whether he was ever in love with me, and no matter who he’s in love with now, Willem changed my life. He showed me how to get lost, and then I showed myself how to get found.
Gayle Forman, Just One Day (via quoted-books)
