If we’d never met, I think I would have known my life wasn’t complete. And I would have wandered the world in search of you, even if I didn’t know who I was looking for.
—The Longest Ride - Nicholas Sparks (via seekinghope)
—A Thousand Years
At some point, as you grow older, this life will expect
you to settle down, to make do with a simple, comfortable,
easy sort of love. You will interview hopeful contenders
in their droves, choosing whoever’s easiest on the eyes or
purse: the most important decision you are given in your life
becomes little more than a clever business move.
Slow down. Do not allow yourself to lose the desire we all
have when we’re young to find a love you’d fight for,
the kind that puts a shiver down your spine when you kiss,
and an ache in your soul when it leaves. I’m telling you,
we must listen to our inner voice, and when you know whose
name it speaks then prepare yourself for war, because love
is not a choice.
