A collection of inspiration

When one is in love, one always begins by deceiving oneself, and one always ends by deceiving others. That is what the world calls a romance.
~Oscar Wilde

How still, how happy! now I feel
Where silence dwells is sweeter far
Than laughing mirth's most joyous swell
However pure its raptures are.
~Emily Bronte

I see your true colors and that's why I love you. So don't be afraid to let them show.

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
I think I know enough of hate
To say that for destruction ice
Is also great
And would suffice.
~Robert Frost

The innocent and the beautiful have no enemy but time.
~William Butler Yeats

We all should know that diversity makes for a rich tapestry, and we must understand that all the threads of the tapestry are equal in value no matter what their color.
~Maya Angelou

Pretty women wonder where my secret lie.
I'm not cute or built to suit a fashion model's size
But when I start to tell them,
They think I'm telling lies.
I say,
It's in the reach of my arms
The span of my hips,
The stride of my step,
The curl of my lips.
I'm a woman
Phenomenal woman,
That's me.
~Maya Angelou

“Wish on everything. Pink cars are good, especially old ones. And stars of course, first stars and shooting stars. Planes will do if they are the first light in the sky and look like stars. Wish in tunnels, holding your breath and lifting your feet off the ground. Birthday candles. Baby teeth.”
~Francesca Lia Block

According to you I'm stupid, I'm useless, I can't do anything right.
According to you I'm difficult, hard to please, forever changing my mind.
I'm a mess in a dress, can't show up on time, even if it would save my life.
According to you.
According to you.
But according to him
I'm beautiful, incredible, he can't get me out of his head.
According to him I'm funny, irresistible, everything he ever wanted.
