“It happens to everyone as they grow up.
You find out who you are
and what you want,
and then you realize that people
you’ve known forever
don’t see things the way you do.
So you keep the wonderful memories,
but find yourself moving on.”—Nicholas Sparks (via welcome-back-belly)
“My passionate sense of social justice and social responsibility has always contrasted oddly with my pronounced lack of need for direct contact with other human beings and human communities. I am truly a ‘lone traveler’ and have never belonged to my country, my home, my friends, or even my immediate family, with my whole heart; in the face of all these ties, I have never lost a sense of distance and a need for solitude…”—Albert Einstein, The World as I see it (via her0inchic)
