"The brain thus takes shape as a compromise between unyielding limits and nearly infinite freedom. It is like a snowflake or a sonnet, whose innumerable members remain bound to an eternal integer.

 The polarity of water molecules constrains a snowflake to be a six-sided polyhedron, and a sonnet comprises fourteen lines. The universe does not contain a seven-sided snowflake or a sonnet with five quatrains. But within the expanse of these restrictions lie endless permutations of beauty.”

-Lewis, Amini, & Lannon (2000): A General Theory of Love

#love #brain #truth


if you miss someone who does not miss you, or who is no good for you, or is unattainable, take all the love you once felt for them and spread it around other places. put your love in worthwhile people and things, turn the romance in to passions for hobbies or admiration for others- enrich your own life. focus on yourself and those who actively make you happy.

Idk why I keep getting sad over people that don’t give a shit about me.

I remember when I was younger and I wanted to be beautiful; now I’m older and I want to be intelligent. I want to burn hearts with brilliance and engulf souls with compassion. I want to be loved for my thoughts and nothing else.

this is perfection (via pogilord)

Breathe. It’s only a bad day, not a bad life.

“Because sending a letter is the next best thing to showing up personally at someone’s door. Ink from your pen touches the stationary, your fingers touch the paper, your saliva seals the envelope, your scent graces the paper. Something tangible from your world travels through machines and hands, and deposits itself in another’s mailbox; their world. Your letter is then carried inside as an invited guest. The paper that was sitting on your desk, now sits on another’s. The recipient handles the paper that you handled. Letters create a connection that modern and impersonal forms of communication will never replace.”
