examine yourself

Sometimes you just need to be alone. Sometimes not even your best friend needs to know. Sometimes you need to put up the walls so you can examine yourself in the peace and quiet. Sometimes the loud sounds need to fade away, leaving only the silence and you; that's it.

a bird

Nicholas Sparks

Poets often describe love as an emotion that we can’t control, one that overwhelms logic and common sense. That's what it’s like for me. I didn’t plan on falling in love with you, and I doubt that you planned on falling in love with me. But once we met, it was clear that neither of us could control what was happening to us. We fell in love, despite our differences, and once we did, something rare and beautiful was created. For me love like that has happened only once, and thats why every minute we spent together has been seared in my memory. I’ll never forget a single moment of it.

- The Notebook, Nicholas Sparks

summer love

looking past the surface and into the soul

The Notebook

“It may seem as the hardest thing to do, but you have to forget the guy who forgot about you. - The Notebook

— Nicholas Sparks

“The best love is the kind that awakens the soul and makes us reach for more, that plants a fire in our hearts and brings peace to our minds. And that’s what you’ve given me. That’s what I’d hoped to give you forever”
— Nicholas Sparks

didn’t agree on much

“They didn’t agree on much. In fact, they rarely agreed on anything. They fought all the time and they challenged each other everyday. But in spite of their differences, they had one important thing in common; they were crazy about each other.”

by Nicholas Sparks

"I love you. I am who I am because of you. You are every reason, every hope, and every dream I've ever had, and no matter what happens to us in the future, everyday we are together is the greatest day of my life. I will always be yours."
The Notebook, by Nicholas Sparks

Noah: It’s not about following your heart and it’s not about keeping your promises. It’s about security. 
Allie: What’s that supposed to mean? 
Noah: Money. He’s got a lot of money! 
Allie: You smug bastard. I hate you for saying that. 
Noah: You’re bored Allie. You’re bored and you know it. You wouldn’t be here if there wasn’t something missing. 
Allie: You arrogant son of a bitch. 
Noah: Would you just stay with me? 
Allie: Stay with you? What for? Look at us, we’re already fightin’ 
Noah: Well that’s what we do, we fight. You tell me when I am being an arrogant son of a bitch and I tell you when you are a pain in the ass. Which you are, 99% of the time. I’m not afraid to hurt your feelings. You have like a 2 second rebound rate, then you’re back doing the next pain-in-the-ass thing. 
Allie: So what? 
Noah: So it’s not gonna be easy. It’s gonna be really hard. We’re gonna have to work at this every day, but I want to do that because I want you. I want all of you, for ever, you and me, every day. Will you do something for me, please? Just picture your life for me? 30 years from now, 40 years from now? What’s it look like? If it’s with him, go. Go! I lost you once, I think I can do it again. If I thought that’s what you really wanted. But don’t you take the easy way out. 
Allie: What easy way? There is no easy way, no matter what I do, somebody gets hurt. 
Noah: Would you stop thinking about what everyone wants? Stop thinking about what I want, what he wants, what your parents want. What do YOU want? What do you WANT? 
Allie: It’s not that simple. 
Noah: What… do… you… want? Whaddaya want? 
Allie: I have to go now. 


Love is like the flu

December is a sweet and romantic month. If you have an investigative mind, you will notice that you have many Libra friends around. The reason why there are so many people born in October is obvious. On the other hand, December is also the peak time for flu due to changes in weather and wind blow. When a cold air current arrives, many people would get sick.

It is said that prevention is always better than cure. Fortunately there are vaccines for flu that help reduce the chance of getting sick. Talking about flu, a line of a song lyric suddenly came up my mind: 'Love is like having flu'. As a doctor, I meet a lot of patients every day with colds or flu, but I really can't tell how true this line is.

Let's make a comparison.

A patient came to my clinic, and said, "Doctor, I think I have got flu."
"Hmm, then how do you feel?"
"I have a fever, feeling hot one minute and cold the next. My ears would sometimes turn red suddenly, and my throat gets very dry."
Hmm, this sounds like falling in love.
"And what else?"
"Phlegm comes up and then I cough a little. Sometimes my nose is blocked and my eyes water."
"Also I feel a bit dizzy, and my heart floats in mid-air. Sometimes I feel that I am stepping on soft rather than hard ground."
"Also sometimes I feel sore and limp. I also have muscle pain and feel very tired. I am simply listless."
It seems that the symptoms are very similar…
"Then do you feel happy?" This witty question suddenly came to my mind, and I asked it with a cunning smile.
"Doctor, are you crazy?" she retorted with eyes wide. "How can I be happy when I am sick?"

Falling in love really feels like having flu, but it makes you feel blissful more often. In this festive and joyful season, I wish that everybody can share the warmth of love with his or her lover, family and friends, and rejoice with the whole world.

breathe in, breathe in, breathe out.

I watch you leave, walk away tonight and I’m letting go for the last time. And through the tears I say goodbye. So breathe in, breathe in, breathe in, breathe out.

'Cause that’s what life's about

'Cause that’s what life's about. It's about the times where you lay in the grass next to someone you love. It's about the color of the sky, it's about a roaring fire on a winter eve. Everybody hurts, everybody bleeds. Everyone laughs and smiles and loves and that's all that it is. There's no meaning of life, it's nothing that can be defined. It's a matter of writing your own definition.

-- keeping the moon by sarah dessen --

but it's strange when you've always been told something is true, like the moon will come back. you need proof. and while you wait you feel the entire balance of your world just tipping. it's crazy. but when it's over, & it does come back, that's the best, because it's all you want, everything narrows to just that. it's like this great rush, like for that one second everything's okay with the world again. it's amazing.

i want a person who comes into my life by accident, but stays on purpose

there's something there alright, but you left first because
you're afraid to have a connection with him, to become
attached, to have your heart broken all over again. you've
gotten so close to him but you back off and leave him
wondering how and why you did it. you thought it wasn't
worth it, when at the back of your mind, you're also
wondering what could have been if you stayed.

I hope that you're happy tonight.

You can pretend I don’t exist, but you see my face every time you kiss I hope you hurt and your walls fall down when you hear the sound that I’m okay I’ll be okay, you can’t hold me down, I won’t stay forever.

Sometimes in life you just have to accept the way things are, when you can't change them. It's hard, but you''ll either learn to let go, or you'll get used to it altogether. At the end of the day, it's all the same heartache, but it's how you deal with it that makes all the difference.
But like a dream, you disappeared, without a sound, without a trace. Sleep well, darling, wherever you are. I hope that you're happy tonight.

met mine

i was never easy to flirt with; i always had my guard up, not wanting
to get hurt. guys had to make so much effort to get me to like them.
but you, you didn't even have to try. my guard came down
the second your eyes met mine

keep him away

If a guy wants you, nothing can keep him away from you. If he doesn’t want you, nothing can make him stay. 

Immature love says: ‘I love you because I need you.’ Mature love says ‘I need you because I love you.

It's taken me a long time to accept who he is and who he will never be.

Immature love says: ‘I love you because I need you.’ Mature love says ‘I need you because I love you.

No one falls in love by choice, it’s by chance.

 No one stays in love by chance, it’s by work.
 No one falls out of love by chance, it’s by choice

fear and love.

there are two basic motivating forces: fear and love.

when we are afraid, we pull back from life. when we are in love, we open to all that life has to offer with
passion, excitement, and acceptance.

pretend to be what you're not

the hardest thing to do in life is to pretend to be what you're not. because pretending is hard. lying to yourself every waking hour of everyday isn't easy. i know that i'm lucky and should be grateful for everything i have, what gets me are those things, those people who i have lost, who have left me, those whose life has been pushed away from me. i pretend that they never mattered, that i couldn't be happier, but the truth is i feel so incomplete, so unhappy, so empty of any hope whatsoever. i hate who we’ve all become. one day you'll just be a memory for some people.
do your best to be a good one.

products of our past

we are products of our past,
but we don't have to be prisoners
 of it.


it was real wasn't it? you and me such a long time ago, we were just a couple of kids but we really loved each other, didn't we?

someday someone is going to look at you

someday someone is going to look
at you with a light in their eyes you've
never seen, they'll look at you like
you're everything they've been looking
for their entire lives. wait for it.

admits that she likes you

If a girl admits that she likes you, know that it took her every ounce of courage she has. don't take her for granted, IDIOT.

Johnny depp

we humans have two great problems:
first is knowing when to start,
and second is knowing when to stop
the best advice that i could give is
just to keep moving FORWARD and don't
give a shit what anybody thinks, you know.
just keep moving forward and do what
you have to do for you.

we're all in the game, just different levels; dealing with the same hell, just different devil

when i stand before God at the end of my life,
 i would hope that i would not have a single bit of talent left. 
i would hope that i could say, “i used everything you gave me.”

-- emma bombeck --

the first step towards getting somewhere is… to decide that you are not going to stay where you are.

you know how every now and then, you have a moment where your whole life stretches out ahead of you like a forked road, and even as you choose one gritty path you've got your eyes on the other the whole time, certain that you're making a mistake
--My Sister's Keeper by Jodi Picoult -
nothing travels faster than the speed of
light with the possible exception of bad news,
which obeys its own special laws

any pain you're going through; it will end. Take a breath. think of that one happy thing in your life and smile. live another day; it's worth it.

You, sir, Smell amazing. Therefore, I won't release you from this hug (; ♥

to be one, to be united is a great thing. but, to respect the right to be different is maybe even greater.
-- bono --

people are like STAINED GLASS WINDOWS;
they sparkle and shine when the sun is out,
but when the darkness sets in, their true
beauty is revealed only if there is a light within.

Cycle of Love: I saw you, I wanted you, I got you, I liked you, I loved you, I lost you, I miss you.

you can take your bullshit and walk out the damn door, cause i'm sure as hell not going to take it anymore

hearing something that kills you inside and having to act like you’re fine is one of the bravest thing in this world.

i find it really weird that the person you are going to marry is walking the earth right now and you may have seen them somewhere in the past but they were a stranger to you at that moment in time

it always has a way of showing

i've learned that when it hurts
too much inside your heart, it always
has a way of showing, no matter how
many masks you wear
memory is an abstract painting.
it doesn't present things as how they
are, but rather as how they feel.
do not look back and grieve
over the past for it is gone, and
do not be troubled about the future
for it has not come. live in the
present and make it so beautiful
that it will be worth remembering.

fights for you

find a 
who fights for you. 
That's a real proof 
of love.

a second chance

Life always offers you a second chance. Its called tomorrow. 
The past cannot be changed, forgotten, edited, or erased.
It can only be accepted

"sticks and stones will break my bones but words will never hurt me"

Next time someone says "sticks and stones will break my bones but words will never hurt me" I'm gonna throw the dictionary at them
