" The timing in which people enter your life is very important. "
" I’m never gonna wait that extra twenty minutes to text you back, and I’m never gonna play hard to get when I know your life has been hard enough already. When we all know everyone’s life has been hard enough already, it’s hard to watch the game we make of love, like everyone’s playing checkers with their scars, saying checkmate whenever they get out without a broken heart. "
" Hard to sit here and be close to you, and not kiss you. "
-F. Scott Fitzgerald, Tender is the Night (via bl-ossomed)
