Having a low opinion of yourself is not modesty. It’s self-destruction.
- Bobbe Sommer (via ghosts)
Never apologize for how you feel. No one can control how they feel. The sun doesn’t apologize for being the sun. The rain doesn’t say sorry for falling. Feelings just are.
- Iain S. Thomas (via psych-facts)
Even in the most peaceful surroundings the angry heart finds a quarrel. Even in the most quarrelsome surroundings the grateful heart finds peace.
- Doe Zantamata (via psych-facts)
When you start to know someone, all their physical characteristics start to disappear. You begin to dwell in their energy, recognize the scent of their skin. You see only the essence of the person, not the shell. That’s why you can’t fall in love with beauty. You can lust after it, be infatuated by it, want to own it. You can love it with your eyes and your body but not your heart. And that’s why, when you really connect with a person’s inner self, any physical imperfections disappear, become irrelevant.
- Lisa Unger, Beautiful Lies (via wordsnquotes)
Mara, that’s the life I want to give you. That’s what I’m offering you. I want to fill you life with color and warmth. I want to fill it with light. Give me a chance.
- Francine Rivers, Redeeming Love (via observando)
There are no wrong turnings. Only paths we had not known we were meant to walk.
- Guy Gavriel Kay, Tigana (via simply-quotes)
