Too real I can relate in every way
There is nothing I would not do for those who are really my friends. I have no notion of loving people by halves, it is not my nature.
How often must we learn this lesson? Men cease to interest us when we find their limitations. The only sin is limitation. As soon as you once come up with a man’s limitations, it is all over with him. Has he talents? has he enterprise? has he knowledge? it boots not. Infinitely alluring and attractive was he to you yesterday, a great hope, a sea to swim in; now, you have found his shores, found it a pond, and you care not if you never see it again.
Ralph Waldo Emerson, “Circles” (via skyfullof)
A friend is a person with whom I may be honest. Before him, I may think aloud. -Ralph Waldo Emerson
This is real
My love for you is hidden away in places that nobody can touch.
Lawyers, bankers, doctors, and left wing bohemians will spend their whole life searching for lips as rare and fragile as yours; for hands, so vulnerable, that they may teach — a brute like myself — all the intricacies of a woman’s heart.
But tonight, the room echoes with memories of loud love and careless smiles. I step outside, to go over the different phases of the moon — as you taught me, and I hear your voice in the dark waters of the sky.
You fill the silence.
You fit in what’s missing.
There’s a place for you in my soul that cannot be destroy and nothing can be done about it. They can riot. They can scream. They can bring the whole damn Roman army and three nuclear bombs. It won’t matter.
My love for you will be waiting in a distant star, where we’ll meet again in different form, and continue our endless journey as soulmates.
my love for you - j.b.
Do not try to make her fall for you, but love her with all your heart. For if her love to you does not come naturally, if you try to create it, it is not true; and as harsh as it sounds, you are then undeserving of it.

The same people that you start your journey off with are NOT necessarily the same people that you’ll end it with, so be prepared, and continue to grow no matter what happens
