"this quote about death being “an old friend” is so funny to me. it’s like “sometimes death comes when you expect it. but don’t expect it.” yes... that’s how death works lmfao. this isn’t an observation, it’s just shallow fodder for quote pillows" Apr 13, 2021 03:50AM

Pablo Neruda
“I don’t love you as if you were the salt-rose, topaz
or arrow of carnations that propagate fire:
I love you as certain dark things are loved,
secretly, between the shadow and the soul.”
Pablo Neruda, 100 Love Sonnets

“Perseverance is failing 19 times and succeeding the 20th.”
Julie Andrews Edwards

Pablo Neruda
“I crave your mouth, your voice, your hair.
Silent and starving, I prowl through the streets.
Bread does not nourish me, dawn disrupts me, all day
I hunt for the liquid measure of your steps.

I hunger for your sleek laugh,
your hands the color of a savage harvest,
hunger for the pale stones of your fingernails,
I want to eat your skin like a whole almond.

I want to eat the sunbeam flaring in your lovely body,
the sovereign nose of your arrogant face,
I want to eat the fleeting shade of your lashes,

and I pace around hungry, sniffing the twilight,
hunting for you, for your hot heart,
Like a puma in the barrens of Quitratue.”
Pablo Neruda

Renée Ahdieh
“Some things exist in our lives for but a brief moment. And we must let them go on to light another sky.”
Renee Ahdieh, The Wrath and the Dawn

Elisabeth Eaves
“I know it's not strictly sex that accounts for my straying the motive usually attributed to men. I think it's just too tempting to have two lives rather than one. Some people think that too much travel begets infidelity: Separation and opportunity test the bonds of love. I think it's more likely that people who hate to make choices to settle on one thing or another are attracted to travel. Travel doesn't beget a double life. The appeal of the double life begets travel.”
Elisabeth Eaves, Wanderlust: A Love Affair with Five Continents
