Happiness is a feeling, not a destination point. If people understood that, then the world would find happiness more often.
“It wasn’t only wickedness and scheming that made people unhappy, it was confusion and misunderstanding; above all, it was the failure to grasp the simple truth that other people are as real as you.” — Ian McEwan, Atonement. (via thatkindofwoman)
Love is not like they say
I lied, it’s hard to make it stay
I drown my feelings in the sea
Then dried out over on the beach
“I am awfully greedy; I want everything from life. I want to be a woman and to be a man, to have many friends and to have loneliness, to work much and write good books, to travel and enjoy myself, to be selfish and to be unselfish… You see, it is difficult to get all which I want. And then when I do not succeed I get mad with anger.” —Simone de Beauvoir (via thatkindofwoman)
But the feeling's gone and I just can't get it back.
