love is stored in the hand. love is stored in the hands that hold each other. it is stored in the hands that create art. it is stored in the hands that have the power to harm but don’t. it is stored in the hands that are warm and the hands that are cool. it is stored in the hands that do things for others just because they can. love is stored in your hands which express the desires of your heart.

my boyfriend pretends to be so edgy when he forgets that he literally used to write me lengthy, dripping-with-sap love letters multiple times a month like an Edwardian man who's passionately in love. and he thinks he's so hard

When you love the most natural thing in the world is to want to be together, but you must understand this does not always imply a physical proximity. Life is busy, time is limited, obligations seemingly multiplying and never-ending, and yet that doesn't stop the desire to be with the one your heart longs for. So we find ways, our soul searches them out, and then we find them in the rain and in every wistful cloud, in the beauty of flowers and in the music of the wind. We color them into the songs we listen to, into the magic of the stars. We hear them whisper in our souls the truth of our hearts. You kiss them with your thoughts and caress them with every smile. You hold their hand when you reminisce of the memories you have created with your lives, with your time, so entwined. And so we satisfy the need that beats in us, and we learn to love the essence of their soul, in the distance, in the silence, and never are they truly far away from us.

So she had to satisfy herself with the idea of love—loving the loving of things whose existence she didn’t care at all about. Love itself became the object of her love. She loved herself in love, she loved loving love, as love loves loving, and was able, in that way, to reconcile herself with a world that fell so short of what she would have hoped for. It was not the world that was the great and saving lie, but her willingness to make it beautiful and fair, to live a once-removed life, in a world once-removed from the one in which everyone else seemed to exit.
Jonathan Safran Foer, Everything Is Illuminated

To love someone else is easy, but to love what you are, the thing that is yourself, is just as if you were embracing a glowing, red-hot iron; it burns into you and that is very painful.
Therefore, to love somebody else in the first place is always an escape which we all hope for, and we all enjoy it when we are capable of it. But in the long run, it comes back on us.
You cannot stay away from yourself forever. You have to return, have to come to that experiment, to know whether you really can love. That is the question - whether you can love yourself. And that will be the test.

If someone cute broke into my house and kidnapped me and took me to a house where i have my own room and im treated like a pretty doll and loved unconditionally but still disciplined with rules that aren't overbearing that would be pretty cool i think in my mind
