Normality is a paved road: It's comfortable to walk, but no flowers grow on it. -Vincent van Gogh

The most beautiful sea
hasn’t been crossed yet.
The most beautiful child
hasn’t grown up yet.
The most beautiful days
we haven’t seen yet.
And the most beautiful words I wanted to tell you
I haven’t said yet…

Nâzım Hikmet (via quotes-shape-us)

Through travel I first became aware of the outside world; it was through travel that I found my own introspective way into becoming a part of it.

Eudora Welty (via quotes-shape-us)

We were made to have our needs met through relationships with people we don’t control. Love - a free choice - is the only thing that will satisfy our hearts. This is why all of us must face the fear of rejection, be healed of shame, and risk our hearts in relationship. We must be willing to offer the truth of who we are to those we love, and receive the truth of who they are. Only the truth can make us free

'Love? I need a lot of love.'
‘Of course you do. Everyone does. It’s funny that we never say it. It’s OK to scream, ‘I’m starving’ in public if you are hungry; it’s OK to make a fuss and say, ‘I’m so sleepy’, if you are tired; but somehow we cannot say, ‘I need some more love.’ Why can’t we say it? It’s just as basic a need.’

Chetan Bhagat, One Night at the Call Center (via quoted-books)
