“When I look inside and see that I am nothing, that’s wisdom.
When I look outside and see that I am everything, that’s love.
Between these two my life turns.”—Nasargadatta Maharaj (via postmodernismruinedme)
My dad ran into an old friend of his today, and they were catching up...
Friend:"So how's your daughter doing?"
Dad:"Great! She's in college now, and she's doing really well. We're really proud of her."
Friend:"What's she studying?"
Friend:"And does she have a boyfriend?"
Dad:"Actually, she came out as gay several years ago."
Friend:"You know that's... UNNATURAL... right??"
Dad:"No, I don't think so, actually. My daughter's sexual orientation is a biological reality. It makes biological sense to me. You know what doesn't make biological sense? Her damned cat walks on a leash. A LEASH. Just trots along on a leash like a damned dog. It's the weirdest thing I've ever seen in my life. THAT is what's unnatural."
“I hope you fall in love
With someone who always texts back and never lets
You fall asleep thinking you’re
I hope you fall in love with someone
Who holds your hand during the scary parts of
Horror movies and burns
Cookies with you when you’re
Too busy dancing around the
I hope you fall in love with
Someone who sees galaxies in your eyes
And hears music in your
I hope you fall in love with someone who
Tickles you and makes you smile
On hard days and on easy
But beyond all that I hope
You fall in love with someone
Who will never leave you behind
And who will never take you
For granted, someone who
Will stand by you when you’re
Right and stand by you
When you’re wrong,
Someone who has seen you at your worst
And has loved you
I hope you fall in love
With someone who
Kisses you in the rain
And hugs you in the cold and
Wouldn’t have you any other
Way.”—Wouldn’t It Be Wonderful, l.h.k. (via dumbwhitegirl)
