Love does not consist of gazing at each other, but in looking outward together in the same direction.
― Antoine de Saint-Exupéry (via purplebuddhaproject)
The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen.
― Elisabeth Kübler-Ross (via purplebuddhaproject)
I love you without knowing how, or when, or from where. I love you simply, without problems or pride: I love you in this way because I do not know any other way of loving but this, in which there is no I or you, so intimate that your hand upon my chest is my hand, so intimate that when I fall asleep your eyes close.
― Pablo Neruda, 100 Love Sonnets (via purplebuddhaproject)
Just because I accept you as you are does not mean that I have given up all hope of your improvement.
