There is a kind of happiness and wonder that makes you serious. It is too good to waste on jokes.
C.S. Lewis (via fearandhope)
Is it possible for a person to love without wanting love back? Is anything so pure? Or is love, by its nature, a reciprocity, like oceans and clouds, an evaporating of seawater and a replenishing by rain?
Alan Lightman (via fables-of-the-reconstruction)
