I wanted movement and not a calm course of existence. I wanted excitement and danger and the chance to sacrifice myself for my love.
More quotes by Leo Tolstoy
He felt now that he was not simply close to her, but that he did not know where he ended and she began.
You can love a person dear to you with a human love, but an enemy can only be loved with divine love.

Do you want me to tell you something really subversive? Love is everything it’s cracked up to be. That’s why people are so cynical about it. It really is worth fighting for, being brave for, risking everything for. And the trouble is, if you don’t risk anything, you risk even more.
The love we shared is a paper town on a map we drew ourselves, drunk and fucked and needing to be more than we were.
Only people who are capable of loving strongly can also suffer great sorrow, but this same necessity of loving serves to counteract their grief and heals them.
I have never had trouble to love others, but loving myself was difficult. For years I didn’t like myself, so how could I love myself. It has taken time, and still there is a way to go, but I can say, not only do I like myself, but also care about myself enough to start loving myself too.
Love is not something we give or get; it is something that we nurture and grow, a connection that can only be cultivated between two people when it exists within each one of them-we can only love others as much as we love ourselves.
If we are simply energy, neither created or destroyed, and if a body is just a body, celestial or not, why don’t you come over here and we will make collisions out of moments.
