“A man who is master of himself can end a sorrow as easily as he can invent a pleasure. I don’t want to be at the mercy of my emotions. I want to use them, to enjoy them, and to dominate them.”—Oscar Wilde (via justbesplendid)
“Dr. Cox: Relationships don’t work the way they do on television and in the movies. Will they? Won’t they? And then they finally do, and they’re happy forever. Gimme a break. Nine out of ten of them end because they weren’t right for each other to begin with, and half of the ones who get married get divorced anyway, and I’m telling you right now, through all this stuff, I have not become a cynic, I haven’t. Yes, I do happen to believe that love is mainly about pushing chocolate covered candies and, y’know, in some cultures, a chicken. You can call me a sucker, I don’t care, because I do believe in it. Bottom line is: it’s couples who are truly right for each other wade through the same crap as everybody else, but the big difference is they don’t let it take them down. One of those two people will stand up and fight for that relationship every time. If it’s right, and they’re real lucky, one of them will say something.”—(via harrietjulie21)
Can I call you my only? Can I call you my lover? Call you my one and only boy.. Call I call you my everything? Call you my baby? You’re the only one that runs my world. So, can I call you mine? You and me, happily, by my side.
my papa just asked me how to spell “happy mother’s day” because he’s trying to make something for her on his computer. even though they fight, times like this im thankful for because it shows they still care about eachother.
it won’t stand. Love that works is the result of both partners putting energy and intention in building a mutual relationship. This includes being around when things aren’t so great, not so comfortable, and not so happy — and being willing to stay the course towards finding a path that leads back to positive love, fulfillment, passion, joy, and all the other things we truly want in a relationship.
