"Build me a home inside your scars,"

"Satan sees evil everywhere, even in God himself. Ironically, it became a self fulfilling prophecy. Since the Fall, evil feels omnipresent, making cynicism an easy sell. Because cynicism sees what is “really going on,” it feels real, authentic. That gives cynicism an elite status since authenticity is one of the last remaining public virtues in our culture."
- Paul E. Miller, “A Praying Life”
"It’s the really simple little things that mean something, that grow your love for someone. Small moments where you get a glimpse of who a person is. One look into their soul- that’s all it takes. You can’t help but love them when they let you in. But the thing to remember is that loving is a whole lot better when you learn who someone is and love them exactly for it, rather than creating an idea of who you think they are or an expectation of who they should be. Instead, let your love say: ‘I see you. As you are. And I love you.’ That is the love people need, the love they desire: to be fully known, and still fully loved."
"I can’t tell you just how wonderful she is. I don’t want you to know. I don’t want any one to know."
F. Scott Fitzgerald, This Side of Paradise (via larmoyante)
There is beauty in the sinner who feels guilt, for something in him says, “There is more to me than this.”

"Never cut a tree down in the wintertime. Never make a negative decision in the low time. Never make your most important decisions when you are in your worst moods. Wait. Be patient. The storm will pass. The spring will come."
Robert H. Schuller (via eunjiski)
"What’s most important in a friendship? Tolerance and loyalty."
All that is gold does not glitter,
Not all those who wander are lost;
The old that is strong does not wither,
Deep roots are not reached by the frost.
From the ashes a fire shall be woken,
A light from the shadows shall spring;
Renewed shall be blade that was broken,
The crownless again shall be king.
- J.R.R. Tolkien
