"People always fall in love with the most perfect aspects of each other’s personalities. Who wouldn’t? Anybody can love the most wonderful parts of another person. But that’s not the clever trick. The really clever trick is this: Can you accept the flaws? Can you look at your partner’s faults honestly and say, ‘I can work around that. I can make something out of it.’? Because the good stuff is always going to be there, and it’s always going to pretty and sparkly, but the crap underneath can ruin you."
- Elizabeth Gilbert (via purplebuddhaproject)
""I hope our wisdom will grow with our power, and teach us that the less we use our power the greater it will be." - Thomas Jefferson"
