"We do not escape into philosophy, psychology, and art—we go there to restore our shattered selves into whole ones."
Anaïs Nin, In Favor of the Sensitive Man and Other Essays (via thatkindofwoman)
"Intimacy is not who you let touch you. Intimacy is who you text at 3am about your dreams and fears. Intimacy is giving someone your attention, when ten other people are asking for it. Intimacy is the person always in the back of your mind, no matter how distracted you are."
