❝ Soon we’ll come to a bookshop. I usually buy a book there. Then I’ll get a massive coffee. Probably induce a panic attack. Read the entire book, and go home. This is my ridiculous life, and I love that I don’t have to explain it to anyone.

❝ Love is one kind of abstraction. And then there are those nights when I sleep alone, when I curl into a pillow that isn’t you, when I hear the tiptoe sounds that aren’t yours. It’s not as if I can conjure you there completely. I must embrace the idea of you instead.
— David Levithan, The Lovers Dictionary (via lovesweetlylovetenderly)
