'caviar and cigarettes. well-versed in etiquette. she spoke just like a baroness.'
To live greatly, we must develop the capacity to face trouble with courage, disappointment with cheerfulness, and triumph with humility.
Thomas S. Monson (via kvtes)
Reminds me of a lesson from college acting class. Stand in front of your partner. Look each other in the eyes and repeat the phrase “I could be hurt by you” to each other until the prof says stop. The first few always seem contrived. But then you realize the truth in it. You see the raw humanity of pain in each other, and the ability to be the cause of that pain in others’ lives. Then, after we relaxed from that exercise, we repeated it. This time saying “I could be loved by you.”
I will never forget that day.

Notice the people who are happy for your happiness, and sad for your sadness. They’re the ones who deserve special places in your heart.
Everyone says love hurts, but that is not true. Loneliness hurts. Rejection hurts. Losing someone hurts. Envy hurts. Everyone gets these things confused with love, but in reality love is the only thing in this world that covers up all pain and makes someone feel wonderful again. Love is the only thing in this world that does not hurt.
