My grandparents divorced 22 years ago.
My grandma has remarried three different times
and my grandfather hasn’t even looked at another
When I asked him what went wrong,
he said, “You can love someone with everything
inside of you, but you can never make them
love you forever. I was a fool to think she
wouldn’t leave me.”
- Amanda Helm, Wandering Souls (via amandaspoetry)
Develop an interest in life as you see it; the people, things, literature, music - the world is so rich, simply throbbing with rich treasures, beautiful souls and interesting people. Forget yourself.
- ― Henry Miller (via psych-quotes)
Life is to be lived, not controlled; and humanity is won by continuing to play in face of certain defeat.
- Ralph Ellison, Invisible Man (via observando)
