“[Y]ou are poetry material; you are full of cloudy subtleties I am willing to spend a lifetime figuring out. Words burst in your essence and you carry their dust in the pores of your ethereal individuality.”—Franz Kafka, in a letter to Milena Jesenská (via yeshecholwa)
Aries is noted for being a tenacious go getter, easily working their way through social situations in order to climb the ladder of success. Though this is true to an extent, Aries has a complex mind and needs a certain amount of solitude in order to keep their daily routine stable.
Taurus has a stereotype of being self centered- although concerning the ones they love this couldn’t be farther from the truth. They will stubbornly do everything they can to help a loved one, even if it requires a certain amount of self sacrifice.
Aquarius: Aquarius people are also noted for being emotionally detached, but the stereotype doesn’t account for their need to check in on their loved ones. Bouts of worrying sometimes trouble them when they think about their loved ones getting into danger or being harmed. Because of this they have a tenancy to constantly text or call those they care about in order to make sure they’re alright.
“When we honestly ask ourselves which person in our lives mean the most to us, we often find that it is those who, instead of giving advice, solutions, or cures, have chosen rather to share our pain and touch our wounds with a warm and tender hand. The friend who can be silent with us in a moment of despair or confusion, who can stay with us in an hour of grief and bereavement, who can tolerate not knowing, not curing, not healing and face with us the reality of our powerlessness, that is a friend who cares.”—Henri J.M. Nouwen, The Road to Daybreak: A Spiritual Journey (via psych-facts)
“He smiled understandingly-much more than understandingly. It was one of those rare smiles with a quality of eternal reassurance in it, that you may come across four or five times in life. It faced—or seemed to face—the whole eternal world for an instant, and then concentrated on you with an irresistible prejudice in your favor. It understood you just as far as you wanted to be understood, believed in you as you would like to believe in yourself, and assured you that it had precisely the impression of you that, at your best, you hoped to convey.”—F. Scott Fitzgerald, The Great Gatsby (via larmoyante)
