"I’m sure the universe is full of intelligent life. It’s just been too intelligent to come here."
- Arthur C. Clarke (via observando)
You must learn her.
You must know the reason why she is silent. You must trace her weakest spots. You must write to her. You must remind her that you are there. You must know how long it takes for her to give up. You must be there to hold her when she is about to.
You must love her because many have tried and failed. And she wants to know that she is worthy to be loved, that she is worthy to be kept.
And, this is how you keep her.

"If they respect you, respect them. If they disrespect you, still respect them. Do not allow the actions of others to decrease your good manners, because you represent yourself, not others."

"There is no poetry
in loving someone
who is in love with
There are no words
to describe the pain
in knowing that I am
like the dirt who gives
shelter to your roots,
when you are like the tree
who shakes in the wind."

"We all have the choice before us, to live our moments with a grace of majesty, as the thunder & the flight of a small butterfly are both beautiful, neither more than the other, as the setting sky & the way a flower dances slowly in the wind, as the swelling roar of the ocean pull & way the light can reflect off the clouds making them the softest pastels, each of us, contains our own unique quality of majesty if we choose to live that way—a gentle beauty despite our flaws.
