“She said, ‘I’m so afraid.’ And I said, ‘Why?’, and she said, ‘because I’m so profoundly happy, Dr. Rasul. Happiness like this is frightening. They only let you be this happy if they’re preparing to take something from you.’”—The Kite Runner (via quote-book)
“even if time fades specific memories, we remember that we loved something. and even if we forget why exactly that we loved it, we know that we did love it, and that itself is reason enough.”—(via isalaz)
You know what I think we are most afraid of? Not knowing. Not knowing whether it’s all really worth it. Not knowing if you should give up or keep fighting. Not Knowing why you do the things you do, not knowing the purpose. It’s like when you’re little & you touch the stove & get burned because you really didn’t know that it was hot. Not knowing has always hurt us from the very beginning.
