Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing
and rightdoing there is a field.
I’ll meet you there.
Rumi (via observando)
To hear the phrase “our only hope” always makes one anxious, because it means that if the only hope doesn’t work, there is nothing left.

We can’t expect the world to be better than we make it.
Days of blood and starlight by Laini Taylor (via quotemybooks)
How do I love thee? Let me count the ways.
I love thee to the depth and breadth and height
My soul can reach, when feeling out of sight
For the ends of being and ideal grace.
I love thee to the level of every day’s
Most quiet need, by sun and candle-light.
I love thee freely, as men strive for right.
I love thee purely, as they turn from praise.
I love thee with the passion put to use
In my old griefs, and with my childhood’s faith.
I love thee with a love I seemed to lose
With my lost saints. I love thee with the breath,
Smiles, tears, of all my life; and, if God choose,
I shall but love thee better after death.
Elizabeth Barrett Browning (via observando)
If there’s a book that you want to read, but it hasn’t been written yet, then you must write it.
