Through my love for you, I want to express my love for the whole cosmos, the whole of humanity, and all beings. By living with you, I want to learn to love everyone and all species. If I succeed in loving you, I will be able to love everyone and all species on Earth… This is the real message of love.
— Thích Nhất Hạnh (via purplebuddhaproject)
And sometimes I have kept my feelings to myself, because I could find no language to describe them in.
— Sense and Sensibility, a novel by Jane Austen (via toujoursattendre)
