"I looked at everyone and wondered where they came from, and who they missed, and what they were sorry for."
Jonathan Safran Foer, Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close (via feellng)
"A long time ago I learned not to explain things to people. It misleads them into thinking they’re entitled to know everything I do."
Lisa Kleypas (via onlinecounsellingcollege)
"What’s the worst thing I’ve stolen? Probably little pieces of other people’s lives. Where I’ve either wasted their time or hurt them in some way. That’s the worst thing you can steal, the time of other people. You just can’t get that back."
Chester Bennington (via oceaniceyes)
"The worst type of crying wasn’t the kind everyone could see—the wailing on street corners, the tearing at clothes. No, the worst kind happened when your soul wept and no matter what you did, there was no way to comfort it. A section withered and became a scar on the part of your soul that survived."
Katie McGarry, Pushing the Limits (via quotethat)
"As I grieve the loss of someone or something dear to me, I also grieve an aspect of me that inevitably dies with that association. Whether it is the loss of a relationship, a creative project, a job or a longed for dream. The person I was, in relationship to that person or thing also seems to go. Though the loss may be painful, holding on potentially creates more pain."
