That’s when you know you’ve found somebody really special. When you can just shut the fuck up for a minute and comfortably share silence.
Pulp Fiction (1994)
Those who are hardest to love need it the most.
I am the most tired woman in the world. I am tired when I get up. Life requires an effort I cannot make. Please give me that heavy book. I need to put something heavy like that on top of my head. I have to place my feet under the pillows always, so as to be able to stay on earth. Otherwise I feel myself going away, going away at a tremendous speed, on account of my lightness.
Anaïs Nin (via delicateswans)
Knowing how to be solitary is central to the art of loving. When we can be alone, we can be with others without using them as an escape.
