"Here’s my philosophy on dating. It’s important to have somebody that can make you laugh, somebody you can trust, and somebody that, you know..turns you on….And it’s really, really important that these three people don’t know each other."
- Brooke Davis,OTH (via brooke-davis-quotes)

"Life kicks you around sometimes. It scares you and it beats you up, but there’s a day when you realize that you’re not just a survivor, you’re a warrior. You’re tougher than anything it throws your way."

"I feel like people get lost when they think of happiness as a destination. We’re always thinking that someday we’ll be happy. You know, we’ll get that car or that job or that person in our lives that’ll fix everything. But happiness is a mood,and it’s a condition,not a destination. It’s like being tired or hungry. It’s not permanent. It comes and goes,and that’s okay. And I feel like if people thought of it that way, they’d find happiness a lot more often."
- Julian Baker, One Tree Hill. (via theycrushedmysoul)

I like drinking coffee alone, and reading alone.

I like riding the bus alone, and walking home alone.

It gives me time to think, and set my mind free.

I like eating alone, and listening to music alone.

But when I see a mother with her child;

A girl with her lover;

Or a friend laughing with their best friend;

I realize that even though I like being alone

I don’t fancy being lonely.
