If someone really loves you,
brendangardiola: You’ll actually know. They’ll take the time to talk to you and be with you. They’ll love you truly and unconditionally even with all your flaws.

nullarysources: Hines, an author of fantasy novels: My sense is that most of these covers are supposed to convey strong, sexy heroines, but these are not poses that suggest strength. You can’t fight from these stances. I could barely even walk. Don’t miss the photos.

Leo Buscaglia Quotes →
mynameishollyclark: Death is a challenge. It tells us not to waste time… It tells us to tell each other right now that we love each other. Don’t brood. Get on with living and loving. You don’t have forever. Don’t smother each other. No one can grow in the shade. I believe that you control your destiny, that you can be what you want to be.

Video Clip: “Petition” from the TV show Portlandia, s02e01 (“Mixology”).
phytochemical: It frightens me that the word Taken is so often used in place of “In a relationship” or any other phrase used to express that you are not single. It just sounds so strange, scary even.

Do the people I’m spending time with give me life, or make me feel small? For a long time I had been surrounded by people who I called my friends, but they kept me feeling small. I don’t blame them for doing this, for I don’t believe they had intended to do so and that that is just how our group ended up, my always being the back-of-the-pack onlooker. But a bit over a year and...
