"Three o’clock in the morning. The soft April night is looking at my windows and caressingly winking at me with its stars. I can’t sleep, I am so happy."
— Anton Chekhov, About Love and Other Stories (via larmoyante)
'I know he likes me. Usually he's very friendly to me, but sometimes he seems to enjoy hurting me. He says unkind things that give me pain, Harry. And then I feel that I've given myself to somebody who thinks my heart is a pretty flower. A flower that he can enjoy for a summer's day, and can forget tomorrow.' -The Picture of Dorian Gray, Oscar Wilde
"You are mysterious. I love you. You’re beautiful, intelligent, and virtuous, and that’s the rarest known combination."
— F. Scott Fitzgerald, Porcelain and Pink (via larmoyante)
