"He couldn’t tell her that what he wanted now, more than anything, was to fall asleep beside her. No touching, no kissing, no stimulation. No sensation, no consciousness. Just the act of sleeping beside someone you liked to be with. Maybe that was love."
Meg Wolitzer (The Interestings)
"You’ll ache. And you’re going to love it. It will crush you. And you’re still going to love all of it. Doesn’t it sound lovely beyond belief?"
"I didn’t realize it, but the days came along one after another, and then two years were gone, and everything was gone, and I was gone."
F. Scott Fitzgerald (via thatkindofwoman)
