"Don’t invest your energy in guys. Invest it in your career, your education, yourself.. You know, things that are permanent in your life."
"Intimacy is not who you let touch you. Intimacy is who you text at 3am about your dreams and fears. Intimacy is giving someone your attention, when ten other people are asking for it. Intimacy is the person always in the back of your mind, no matter how distracted you are."
"I always marvel at the humans’ ability to keep going. They always manage to stagger on even with tears streaming down their faces."
-Markus Zusak, The Book Thief (via brivid)
