    "… But there are certain people you love who do something else; they define how you classify what love is supposed to feel like. These are the most important people in your life, and you’ll meet maybe four or five of these people over the span of 80 years. But there’s still one more tier to all this; there is always one person you love who becomes that definition. It usually happens retrospectively, but it happens eventually. This is the person who unknowingly sets the template for what you will always love about other people, even if some of these loveable qualities are self-destructive and unreasonable. The person who defines your understanding of love is not inherently different than anyone else, and they’re often just the person you happen to meet the first time you really, really, want to love someone. But that person still wins. They win, and you lose. Because for the rest of your life, they will control how you feel about everyone else."

    "Do you know what it means to love somebody? Do you know what it means to love a tree, or a bird, or a pet animal, so that you take care of it, feed it, cherish it, though it may give you nothing in return though it may not offer you shade, or follow you, or depend on you? Most of us don’t love in that way, we don’t know what that means at all because our love is always hedged about with anxiety, jealousy, fear - which implies that we depend inwardly on another, we want to be loved. We don’t just love and leave it there, but we ask something in return; and in that very asking we become dependent."

    - Jiddu Krishnamurti

    "I don’t want to be one of those people lying on my deathbed thinking I should have eaten more donuts. I think it’s helpful to know what are the things that really make you happy, and you have to do them while you still can do them."

    Nora Ephron talking with Leonard Lopate in 2010. The author died last night at the age of 71.

    But I never meant to hurt you. I’m sorry that I did—in such a despicable way, no less. Forgive me.

About

I want to travel the world with my back pack.

I randomly think of ~ Travel. Photography. Hiking. Nature Tripping. Books. Inspiration. LOVE. Happy Endings. Cakes. Pastries. Emotions. Angels. Coffee. Literature. Witty Comments. Amazing Quotes. Culture and Tradition. Architectures.

I am a sucker of good books.

Someone is actually inspiring me. I am a frustrated photographer, and my current obsession has something to do with my little kitchen.
