"I’m not the silly romantic you think. I don’t want the heavens or the shooting stars. I don’t want gemstones or gold. I have those things already. I want…a steady hand. A kind soul. I want to fall asleep, and wake, knowing my heart is safe. I want to love, and be loved."
- Shana Abé (via at-home-in-nature)
"Man is harder than iron, stronger than stone and more fragile than a rose."
- Turkish Proverb (via showslow)
