Emotional pain is behind all the cruelty, all the greed, and all the unhappiness in the world
Barry Long (via barrylongquotes)
To live the truth you need a mirror. You need to see life as it is - not as others tell you it should be, or as you wish it were.
I talk of life and love as it is. Like any real mirror, I don’t tell you what to do. When you see for yourself, you know what to do.
Statement by Barry Long, advertising a series of monthly talks in Sydney in 1988. (via barrylongbulletin)
Memories are dangerous things. You turn them over and over, until you know every touch and corner, but still you’ll find an edge to cut you.
Mark Lawrence, Prince of Thorns (via to-salsabeel)

Do not seek the because - in love there is no because, no reason, no explanation, no solutions.
