"The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths.

"It is the really simple little things that mean something, that grow your love for someone. Small moments where you get a glimpse of who a person is. One look into their heart- that’s all it takes. The way she always says ‘seriously!’ when she means it. The way he admits he’s so nervous to talk to you he will just have to pass you notes. You can’t help but love them when they let you in. Loving is a whole lot easier when you learn who someone is and love them for it, rather than creating an idea of who you think they are or an expectation of who they should be. Instead, let your love say: ‘I see you. As you are. I love you.’ That is the love people need, the love they desire: to be fully known, and still fully loved."
"The most important kind of freedom is to be what you really are. You trade in your reality for a role. You trade in your sense for an act. You give up your ability to feel, and in exchange, put on a mask. There can’t be any large-scale revolution until there’s a personal revolution, on an individual level. It’s got to happen inside first."
