"I don’t trust people who don’t love themselves and tell me, ‘I love you.’ … There is an African saying which is: Be careful when a naked person offers you a shirt."
- Maya Angelou (via hqlines)
"When someone sees the same people every day, as had happened with him at the seminary, they wind up becoming a part of that person’s life. And then they want the person to change. If someone isn’t what others want them to be, the others become angry. Everyone seems to have a clear idea of how other people should lead their lives, but none about his or her own."
- Paulo Coelho, The Alchemist (via kushandwizdom)
"Falling in love is not a choice. To stay in love is. We fall in love with someone for a reason. That reason is either temporary or permanent"
- Mark Patterson (via kushandwizdom)
