“The beginning of love is the will to let those we love be perfectly themselves, the resolution not to twist them to fit our own image. If in loving them we do not love what they are, but only their potential likeness to ourselves, then we do not love them: we only love the reflection of ourselves we find in them.”
Thomas Merton (via thecalminside)

J.A. Redmerski, The Edge of Never

“We can’t be afraid of change. You may feel very secure in the pond that you are in, but if you never venture out of it, you will never know that there is such a thing as an ocean, a sea. Holding onto something that is good for you now, may be the very reason why you don’t have something better.”
C. JoyBell C. (via kushandwizdom)
“Where love rules, there is no will to power, and where power predominates, love is lacking. The one is the shadow of the other.”
C.G. Jung (via purplebuddhaproject)
“I am eternally, devastatingly romantic, and I thought people would see it because ‘romantic’ doesn’t mean ‘sugary.’ It’s dark and tormented — the furor of passion, the despair of an idealism that you can’t attain.”
Catherine Breillat (via liquidlightandrunningtrees)
“You can’t measure the mutual affection of two human beings by the number of words they exchange.”
Milan Kundera (via kushandwizdom)
