"Sometimes you have to watch somebody love something before you can love it yourself. It is as if they are showing you the way."
— Donald Miller
"I still have a woman in my arms who has suffered greatly and desperately needs to believe once again that she is beautiful. In my arms is a woman who has given me a Skywatcher’s Cloud Chart, a woman who knows all of my secrets, a woman who knows just how messed up my mind is, how many pills I’m on, and yet she allows me to hold her anyway. There’s something honest about all of this, and i cannot imagine any other woman lying in the middle of a frozen soccer field with me-in the middle of a snowstorm even- impossibly hoping to see a single cloud break free of a nimbostratus. Nikki would not have done this for me, not even on her best day. So i pull Tiffany a little closer, kiss the hard spot between her perfectly plucked eyebrows, and after a deep breath, i say “I think i need you too."

Or maybe you like to eat alone in restaurants and could do without the pitying looks from fellow diners.

And this is how we know John Green has a tumblr.
"All I could think about now, as night fell, was how much you can love made-up people, and how much you can miss them."

"I’m in love with you, and I’m not in the business of denying myself the simple pleasure of saying true things. I’m in love with you, and I know that love is just a shout into the void, and that oblivion is inevitable, and that we’re all doomed and that there will come a day when all our labor has been returned to dust, and I know the sun will swallow the only earth we’ll ever have, and I am in love with you."

“So, I guess we are who we are for alot of reasons. And maybe we’ll never know most of them. But even if we don’t have the power to choose where we come from, we can still choose where we go from there. We can still do things. And we can try to feel okay about them.”
