“Stella turned towards me and crumpled my heart in her hand. ‘Do you fall in love often?’
Yes often. With a view, with a book, with a dog, a cat, with numbers, with friends, with complete strangers, with nothing at all.

There are others who make fools of themselves, loving widely, indiscreetly, forgetting it is themselves they are trying to love back to a better place.”—Gut Symmetries, Jeanette Winterson (via quote-book)

Only to be let down time after time
This one’s for the torn down, the experts at the fall
Come on friends get up now you’re not alone at all”—Greg Laswell (via quote-book)

“Doubting feelings is so normal, and at our age I don’t think I can even completely trust myself with everything so how can we be expected to trust anyone else completely and totally? It’s tough… But as long as were happy”—a friend
