“Time for you and time for me,
And time yet for a hundred indecisions,
And for a hundred visions and revisions,
Before the taking of a toast and tea.”— from The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock by T.S. Elliot (via quotesthatmakemeshiver)

“A person who has good thoughts cannot ever be ugly. You can have a wonky nose and a crooked mouth and a double chin and stick-out teeth, but if you have good thoughts they will shine out of your face like sunbeams and you will always look lovely.”—Roald Dahl (via cardigans) - The Twits
Oh no, this couldn’t be more unexpected. And I can tell you I’ve been moving in so slow. Don’t let it throw you off too far, ‘cause I’ll be running right behind you.
Could this be out of line? To say you’re the only one breaking me down like this. You’re the only one, I would take a shot on. Keep me hanging on, so contagiously.
Ooh, when I’m around you I’m predictable. ‘Cause I believe in loving you with first site. I know it’s crazy but I’m hoping to take a hold of you. Oh you’re everything I’m wanting, come to think of it, I’m aching. On account of my transgression, will you welcome this confession?
