“I do believe, though, that there are a great many people who are leading nearly perfect lives and are unaware of it. They don’t realize their own good fortune or they won’t admit it to themselves. There is such a disease as chronic dissatisfaction, and it’s about the most insidious and fatal disease any man or woman can have. So many people do not know until it’s too late how splendid things have been for them.. I resolve to let Tomorrow take care of itself. It always has.”—Clark Gable (via tallerthanlions)
Pretty sure, if I ever get married, that I will be a sobbing mess of happy tears the whole time. How do people get through their own weddings without crying? Seems impossible to contain that much happiness.
“I like “A Little Lost” because it’s all about kissing. I love kissing. If I could kiss all day, I would. I can’t stop thinking about kissing. I like kissing more than sex because there’s no end to it. You can kiss forever. You can kiss yourself into oblivion. You can kiss all over the body. You can kiss yourself to sleep. And when you wake up, you can’t stop thinking about kissing. Dammit, I can’t get anything done because I’m so busy thinking about kissing. Kissing is madness! But it’s absolute paradise, if you can find a good kisser.”—Sufjan Stevens on Arthur Russell’s song “A Little Lost,” as quoted to stereogum
“We need people in our lives with whom we can be as open as possible. To have real conversations with people may seem like such a simple, obvious suggestion, but it involves courage and risk.”—Thomas Moore (via penniesinmyloafers)
