"Being brilliant is no great feat if you respect nothing."

Johann Wolfgang von Goethe (via cinderellas-stilettos)

"You know what’s really, powerfully sexy? A sense of humor. A taste for adventure. A healthy glow. Hips to grab on to. Openness. Confidence. Humility. Appetite. Intuition. … Smart-ass comebacks. Presence. A quick wit. Dirty jokes told by an innocent-looking lady. … A storyteller. A genius. A doctor. A new mother. A woman who realizes how beautiful she is."

"Sometimes love isn’t enough and sometimes it isn’t the right kind of love. People like to think that just because they’re in love, they’ll get a happily ever after. But then real life intrudes."

S.H. Kolee, Love Left Behind (via simply-quotes)
