Below are some picks from http://autumnindie.tumblr.com. A very quotable blog.
“She asked, ‘You are in love, what does love look like?’ To which I replied, ‘Like everything I’ve ever lost came back to me.’” Nayyirah Waheed
“Compassion hurts. When you feel connected to everything, you also feel responsible for everything. And you cannot turn away. Your destiny is bound with the destinies of others. You must either learn to carry the universe or be crushed by it. You must grow strong enough to love the world, yet empty enough to sit down at the same table with its worst horrors.” Andrew Boyd
“Marry your best friend. I do not say that lightly. Really, truly find the strongest, happiest friendship in the person you fall in love with. Someone who speaks highly of you. Someone you can laugh with. The kind of laughs that make your belly ache, and your nose snort. The embarrassing, earnest, healing kind of laughs. Wit is important. Life is too short not to love someone who lets you be a fool with them. Make sure they are somebody who lets you cry, too. Despair will come. Find someone that you want to be there with you through those times. Most importantly, marry the one that makes passion, love, and madness combine and course through you. A love that will never dilute – even when the waters get deep, and dark.” (via rainydaysandblankets)
“The whole world is a series of miracles, but we’re so used to them we call them ordinary things.” Hans Christian Andersen
“‘If the girl had been worth having she’d have waited for you.’ No, sir, the girl really worth having won’t wait for anybody.” F. Scott Fitzgerald, This Side of Paradise (via simply-quotes)
