“My thoughts go out to you, my Immortal Beloved, now and then joyfully, then sadly, waiting to learn whether or not fate will hear us - I can live only wholly with you or not at all - Yes, I am resolved to wander so long away from you until I can fly to your arms and say that I am really at home with you, and can send my soul enwrapped in you into the land of spirits - Yes, unhappily it must be so —- You will be the more contained since you know my fidelity to you. No one else can ever possess my heart - never - never. Be calm - love me - today - yesterday - what tearful longings for you - you - you - my life - my all - farewell. Oh, continue to love me - never misjudge the most faithful heart of your beloved. Ever thine. Ever mine. Ever ours.” —Excerpt from Love Letter #3 by Ludwig van Beethoven.
“I’ve always loved the girl in the convertible with her hair blowing in the wind. When I started to design clothes for women they were for that natural girl. I didn’t like the girl with all the makeup and high heels. I liked the girl in jeans and a white shirt with rolled up sleeves, wearing her boyfriend’s jacket. That’s the girl I’m attracted to.” —Ralph Lauren (via southern-cinderella)
“I want to be brim-full with immensity of life.” —C.S. Lewis (The Great Divorce)
