1. There will be several days that you daydream about stepping in front of a city bus. Don’t. It will not be beautiful. It will not be brave. It will be selfish. It will be broken. Your mother will cry.
2. Don’t write for him. Write for you. Write for others like you. Write so…
“Don’t you know that love isn’t just going to bed? Love isn’t an act, it’s a whole life. It’s staying with her now because she needs you; it’s knowing you and she will still care about each other when sex and daydreams, fights and futures — when all that’s on the shelf and done with. Love — why, I’ll tell you what love is: it’s you at seventy-five and her at seventy-one, each of you listening for the other’s step in the next room, each afraid that a sudden silence, a sudden cry, could mean a lifetime’s talk is over.”—Brian Moore (via d4untless)
“No te llamo… mío. Comprendo perfectamente que jamás lo fuiste y por eso me siento castigada con tanta dureza por haberme aferrado a esa idea, como a mi única alegría. Pero te llamo mío, mi seductor, mí embaucador, mí enemigo, origen de mi desventura, tumba de mi dicha, abismo de mi desdicha.
Te llamo mío y me considero tuya”—Diario de un seductor (via cocomarth)
