"Most people do not listen with the intent to understand; they listen with the intent to reply."

"In the end, only three things matter: how much you loved, how gently you lived, and how gracefully you let go of things not meant for you."
— Buddha (via ayyosami)
"I go to sleep alone, and wake up alone. I take walks. I work until I’m tired. I watch the wind play with the trash that’s been under the snow all winter. Everything seems simple until you think about it. Why is love intensified by absence?"
