“The most painful thing is losing yourself in the process of loving someone too much…”

Detail from “Young Girl with a Dove” (1869), by Charles Joshua Chaplin
“When we meet someone and fall in love, we have a sense that the whole universe is on our side.
And yet if something goes wrong, there is nothing left!
How is it possible for the beauty that was there only minutes before to vanish so quickly?
Life moves very fast.
It rushes from heaven to hell in a matter of seconds.”
“About all you can do in life is be who you are.
Some people will love you for you.
Most will love you for what you can do for them, and some won’t like you at all.”
– Rita Mae Brown

“Always show kindness and love to others.
Your words might be filling the empty places in someone’s heart.”
– Mandy Hale
“You have to learn to get up from the table when love is no longer being served.”
– Nina Simone
