It’s easy to take the people closest to us for granted and assume they know how we feel about them. You might think, “Oh, I don’t need to say anything. They know how I love them.” Or, “She knows I think she is beautiful…He knows I think he’s great.” But they are the ones who need your affirmation the most! A blessing is not a blessing until it is spoken.
“When the blood of your veins returns to the sea and the dust of your bones returns to the ground, maybe then will you remember that this earth does not belong to you, you belong to this earth.”—(via dehanginggarden)
“If you take a book with you on a journey,…an odd thing happens: The book begins collecting your memories. And forever after you have only to open that book to be back where you first read it. It will all come into your mind with the very first words: the sights you saw in that place, what it smelled like, the ice cream you ate while you were reading it…yes, books are like flypaper—memories cling to the printed page better than anything else.”—Cornelia Funke, Inkheart (via psych-facts)
