I think that’s just it. The fearlessness of falling in love for the very first time, the boundless trust you deal out, the ideals of happy ever after. I think you only experience all that once. Thereafter, you’re careful. You fear rejection, trust comes so much harder and happy ever after becomes only something you can hope for. I don’t ask to be your first love, how could I fight fate or time or circumstance. But what I ask is in spite of being careful, in me you find it in you to be fearless, trusting, and in me you find your happy ever after.

have you ever known somebody so shitty they completely ruin that first name for you?

The older I got the more all the dudes the same age around me, all these guys my age, they got angrier and angrier. There we were getting past the restraints of childhood, the numb madness of high school and the bewildering hangover of college, and instead of taking it in stride, we all seemed to get louder and angrier. Choosing to be chill, it didn’t leave you a lot of peers, and misunderstandings proliferated, but I couldn’t see much point in bad posture and venom politics. God didn’t seem to come down any faster. It was like getting black out drunk without the joy of alcohol. — (via howitzerliterarysociety)

They carried all they could bear, and then some, including a silent awe for the terrible power of the things they carried. — Tim O’Brien, The Things They Carried (via calodaemon)
A true war story is never moral. It does not instruct, nor encourage virtue, nor suggest models of proper human behavior, nor restrain men from doing the things men have always done. If a story seems moral, do not believe it. If at the end of a war story you feel uplifted, or if you feel that some small bit of rectitude has been salvaged from the larger waste, then you have been made the victim of a very old and terrible lie. There is no rectitude whatsoever. There is no virtue. As a first rule of thumb, therefore, you can tell a true war story by its absolute and uncompromising allegiance to obscenity and evil. — Tim O’Brien (The Things They Carried)

who’ve seen us at our best
and seen us at our worst
and can’t tell the difference.
