"It’s amazing how stupid you can be when you’re in love."
"If nothing else, one day you can look someone straight in the eyes and say, “But I lived through it. And it made me who I am today."
"I crave space. It charges my batteries. It helps me breathe. Being around people can be so exhausting, because most of them love to take and barely know how to give. Except for a rare few."

"I don’t want a lukewarm love. I want it to burn my lips and engulf my soul."
"I gave you things I wasn’t sure I even had."
