Perhaps all the dragons in our lives are princesses who are only waiting to see us act, just once, with beauty and courage. Perhaps everything that frightens us is, in its deepest essence, something helpless that wants our love.
—Rainer Maria Rilke, Letters to a Young Poet (via kushandwizdom)
Once upon a time there was a boy who loved a girl, and her laughter was a question he wanted to spend his whole life answering.
—Nicole Krauss, The History of Love (via kushandwizdom)
