Be soft. Do not let the world make you hard. Do not let pain make you hate. Do not let the bitterness steal your sweetness. Take pride that even though the rest of the world may disagree, you still believe it to be a beautiful place.

Iain Thomas

'But do you know this idea of the imaginary homeland? Once you set out from shore on your little boat, once you embark, you'll never truly be at home again. What you've left behind exists only in your memory, and your ideal place becomes some strange imaginary concoction of all you've left behind at every stop.'

Claire Messud (The Woman Upstairs)

I want to feel your lips touching mine,
I want to feel your body pressed close to me as our hearts intertwine.
I want all of your love,
'Cause it brings joy to me that I have only dreamed of.

I can’t wait till I touch you, hold you and kiss you,
For that is what I want to do.
I want to show you just how I feel,
To show you that my feelings for you are real.

Whew this scene…years later….still super hot.

I still have not seen it.

here you go, loveniaimani. it’s kinda spoilery (but not a whole lot) if u plan on watchin the show tho (WHICH I HIGHLY RECOMMEND…only series 1-3 tho) 



I loved being her child. I remember looking at her and thinking she was the most beautiful thing in the world.
