You don’t love someone for their looks, or their clothes, or for their fancy car, but because they sing a song only you can hear.
Oscar Wilde (via observando)
Колкото и да са възвишени идеалите за изкуството и красотата, техните носители и проповедници са пак хора с всички слабости на човешката раса

Mark Twain (via observando)
Nature is beautiful even in her tears
Jerome K. Jerome, Three men in a boat, Chapter 8
