“If you love somebody, let them go, for if they return, they were always yours. If they don’t, they never were.”
“Beauty is not in the face; beauty is a light in the heart.”
“Out of suffering have emerged the strongest souls; the most massive characters are seared with scars.”
It is with the heart that you find the truth, for the heart feels what the eye cannot see.
“You matter as much as the things that matter to you. And I got so backwards trying to matter to him. All this time, there were real things to care about: real, good people who care about me, and this place. It’s so easy to get stuck. You just get caught in being something, being special or cool or whatever, to the point where you don’t even know why you need it; you just think you do.”
― John Green, An Abundance of Katherines
We are so used to releasing words, we don’t know what to do with them if they stay. No matter how many times we let them go, they come back. The words that matter always stay.
If you stare at the center of the universe, there is coldness there. A blankness. Ultimately, the universe doesn’t care about us. Time doesn’t care about us. That’s why we have to care about each other.
