The person, be it gentleman or lady, who has not pleasure in a good novel, must be intolerably stupid.
— Jane Austen (via feellng)
I don’t want to be the person who isn’t listening when someone talks; instead, thinking about your eyes, your hair, your lips, your voice. But I can’t help it. You can’t tell yourself not to think about someone — that’s just asking to think about them even more. It’s like riding a wave, I guess. I have to wait for this love to crest and fall and then I’ll finally be able to function knowing you’re so far away from me, with no end in sight.
— Karen Noble, Distance Doesn’t Matter, I Still Think About You All Day Long (via feellng)
