The most painful thing is losing yourself in the process of loving someone too much, and forgetting that you are special too.

Ernest HemingwayMen Without Women (via feellng)

I guess that’s just part of loving people: You have to give things up. Sometimes you even have to give them up.

 Lauren OliverDelirium (via feellng)

Don’t be discouraged by a failure. It can be a positive experience. Failure is, in a sense, the highway to success, inasmuch as every discovery of what is false leads us to seek earnestly after what is true, and every fresh experience points out some form of error which we shall afterwards carefully avoid.

John Keats (via emotional-algebra)

Nothing ever becomes real till it is experienced — Even a proverb is no proverb to you till your Life has illustrated it.

John Keats, Letter to George and Georgiana Keats (February 14-May 3, 1819). (via wordsnquotes)
