There is a primal reassurance in being touched, in knowing that someone else, someone close to you, wants to be touching you. There is a bone-deep security that goes with the brush of a human hand, a silent, reflex-level affirmation that someone is near, that someone cares.
— Jim Butcher, White Night (via observando)
I long so much to make beautiful things. But beautiful things require effort and disappointment and perseverance.
— Vincent van Gogh (via vintagegal)
