    “I love you,

    When I am with you.

    I love you,

    Not only for what

    You have made of yourself,

    But for what

    You are making of me.

    I love you

    For the part of me

    That you bring out;

    I love you

    For putting your hand

    Into my heaped-up heart

    And passing over

    All the foolish, weak things

    That you can’t help

    Dimly seeing there,

    And for drawing out

    Into the light

    All the beautiful belongings

    That no one else had looked

    Quite far enough to find.

    I love you because you

    Are helping me to make

    Of the lumber of my life

    Not a tavern

    But a temple;

    Out of the works

    Of my every day

    Not a reproach

    But a song.

    I love you

    Because you have done

    More than any creed

    Could have done

    To make me good

    And more than any fate

    Could have done

    To make me happy.

    You have done it

    Without a touch,

    Without a word,

    Without a sign.

    You have done it

    By being yourself.

    Being a friend means,

    After all.” - Roy Croft

    Fly, if you can't fly, run, if you can't run, walk, if you can't walk, crawl, but by all means keep moving until you reach what you believe in.

    I'm a lover, not a fighter, but I'll fight for what I love.

    Tough times are what makes a tough person, the more shxt you go through the stronger you get. So just remember that.

    Breathe. Let go. And remember this is the only moment you know you have for sure.

    Dream as if you'll live forever. Live as if you'll die today.

    If you can dream it, you can do it.

    The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of there dreams.

    You must accept that’s who he really is.

    You must accept you cannot be his

    unless he is yours. No compromise.

    He is a canvas on which paint never dries;

    a clay that never sets, steel that bends

    in a breeze, a melody that when it ends

    no one can whistle. He is not who

    you thought. [...]

    You have to hear what he is telling you

    and see what he is; how it is killing you.
