I mean, we’re all trying to find out who the hell we are, aren’t we?Robert Ludlum, The Bourne Identity (via fy-perspectives)
Pure love for another person, and what people call romantic love, are two different things. Pure love doesn’t manipulate the relationship to one’s advantage, but romantic love is different. Romantic love contains other elements—the desire to be loved by the other person, for instance. If purely loving another was enough, you wouldn’t suffer because of unrequited love. As long as the other person was happy, there wouldn’t be any need to suffer because you weren’t being loved in return. What makes people suffer is the desire to be loved by another person. So I decided that romantic love and pure love for a person are not the same. And that by following this you could lessen the pain of unrequited love.Haruki Murakami (via fy-perspectives)
Nobody can teach me who I am. You can describe parts of me, but who I am - and what I need - is something I have to find out myself.Chinua Achebe (via fy-perspectives)

Let’s face it: I’m scared, scared and frozen. First, I guess I’m afraid for myself…the old primitive urge for survival. It’s getting so I live every moment with terrible intensity. It all flowed over me with a screaming ache of pain… remember, remember, this is now, and now, and now. Live it, feel it, cling to it. I want to become acutely aware of all I’ve taken for granted. When you feel that this may be good-bye, the last time, it hits you harder.Sylvia Plath, The Unabridged Journals of Sylvia Plath (via wordsnquotes)
