"That’s why it’s love—it’s unconditional. Whether you commit a mistake or a hundred, I would still love you. They say the most romantic kind of love is the unfinished kind. The kind that will forever burn and mark your soul."
Chasing Imperfection (Pamela Ann)

"Works of art can fail so easily, it is so difficult for them to succeed. One man will fall silent because of his lack of feeling; another, because his emotion chokes him. A third frees himself, not from the burden that weighs on him, but only from a feeling of unfreedom. A forth breaks his tools because they have too long been used to exploit him. The world is not obliged to be sentimental. Defeats should be acknowledged; but one should not conclude from them that there should be no more struggles."
Bertolt Brecht, Against Georg Lukacs (via ubuwaits)

"For if a strong back
and a heavy heart
have taught me anything,
it’s that love does not exist to
lighten our hearts,
love only exists to see
how much we will carry."
"And a softness came from the starlight and filled me full to the bone."
W. B. Yeatsfrom “The Wanderings of Oisin,” in The Wanderings of Oisin and Other Poems (Kegan Paul and Co., 1889)
