“maybe she wasnt ready to get out. Maybe she still had hope-that it’d get better, that this time she wouldnt piss him off, that if she were thinner or wore more makeup or diff clothes or a diff hairstyle he would love her and the pain would stop” #quotes #love #relationship #goodreads#book #ifiammissingordead
Love isn’t about attraction, not about infatuation, not about lust, not about gifts and the length of time you spent together. Bottom line? There’s no reason at all. True love is having to wake up each day feeling so deeply in love and overwhelmingly happy whenever this person is around you without even knowing why. Making you forget about the past, cherish the present and wishing the future would be spending your lives together entirely.
There are lots of things ordinary people can do that I can’t. That’s for sure. Playing tennis, skiing, for instance. Working in a company, having a happy family. On the other hand, there are a few things I can do that most other people can’t. And I do these few things very, very well. I’m not expecting applause or for people to shower me with coins. But I do need to show the world what I’m capable of.
I don’t live in either my past or my future. I’m interested only in the present. If you can concentrate always on the present, you’ll be a happy man. Life will be a party for you, a grand festival, because life is the moment we’re living now.
Maybe the easiest things are the hardest to come up with. Like they say, people miss what’s going on right under their noses.
