Ethel & Bev NASHVILLE
Introverts, in contrast, may have strong social skills and enjoy parties and business meetings, but after a while wish they were home in their pajamas. They prefer to devote their social energies to close friends, colleagues, and family. They listen more than they talk, think before they speak, and often feel as if they express themselves better in writing than in conversation. They tend to dislike conflict. Many have a horror of small talk, but enjoy deep discussions.
Susan Cain (via quotes-shape-us)
People don’t like love, they like that flittery flirty feeling. They don’t love love - love is sacrificial, love is ferocious, it’s not emotive. Our culture doesn’t love love, it loves the idea of love. It wants the emotion without paying anything for it. It’s ridiculous.

When anything truly important happens in your life, wherever you happen to be, find a stick in the immediate vicinity and write the occasion and date on it. Keep these sticks together, protect them. There shouldn’t be too many; sort through them every few years and separate the events that remain genuinely important from those that once were but are no longer. You know the difference.Throw the rest out. When you are very old, very sick, or sure there’s not much time left to live, put them together and burn them. The marriage of sticks.
