"I don't know about you old man, but I like my choices."

Everything you love is here

I do not love you as if you were salt-rose, or topaz,
or the arrow of carnations the fire shoots off.
I love you as certain dark things are to be loved,
in secret, between the shadow and the soul.

I love you as the plant that never blooms
but carries in itself the light of hidden flowers;
thanks to your love a certain solid fragrance,
risen from the earth, lives darkly in my body.

I love you without knowing how, or when, or from where.
I love you straightforwardly, without complexities or pride;
so I love you because I know no other way

than this: where I does not exist, nor you,
so close that your hand on my chest is my hand,
so close that your eyes close as I fall asleep.

Sonnet XVII, Pablo Neruda (via kidlove)


Everything you love is here
I kissed her neck and shoulders. I felt faint with loving her so much.

— Ernest Hemingway, A Farewell to Arms (via ohfairies)

Humility is not thinking less of yourself, it’s thinking of yourself less.

C.S. Lewis
