"If you expect the world to be fair with you because you are fair, you’re fooling yourself. That’s like expecting the lion not to eat you because you didn’t eat him."
"… the devil doesn’t come dressed in a red cape and pointy horns. He comes as everything you’ve ever wished for …"
Tucker Max, Assholes Finish First (via khalishh)
"You wander from room to room hunting for the diamond necklace that is already around your neck!"
"People aren’t always what you want them to be. Sometimes they disappoint you or let you down, but you have to give them a chance first. You can’t just meet someone and expect them to be everything you’re looking for and then be angry when they’re not every hope and aspiration you projected onto them. It’s foolish to believe that someone will be what you imagine them to be. And sometimes, when you give them a chance, they turn out to be better than you imagined. Different, but better."
Chloe Rattray, Sacré Noir (via simply-quotes)
"Sometimes you have to wander around until you find where you really belong. And sometimes it’s right where you started."
Rachel Gibson, True Confessions (via simply-quotes)
"I can get my head turned by a good-looking guy as much as the next girl. But sexy doesn’t impress me. Smart impresses me, strength of character impresses me. But most of all, I am impressed by kindness. Kindness, I think, comes from learning hard lessons well, from falling and picking yourself up. It comes from surviving failure and loss. It implies an understanding of the human condition, forgives its many flaws and quirks. When I see that in someone, it fills me with admiration."
Lisa Unger, Beautiful Lies (via simply-quotes)
"I’ll grieve over the past more than I do now, but the most important thing is the purpose of changing something now for the future"
