Temptation

 

I think this one of my favourite quotations.

It is well known, but if by chance you don’t know it, or where it comes from, it is by Oscar Wilde. It comes from Act One his 1892 play Lady Windermere’s Fan, and is spoken by the character Lord Darlington.

 

“I can resist everything except temptation.”

 

So true.

Missing Someone

‘Missing someone isn’t about how long it has been since you’ve seen them or the amount of time since you’ve talked. It’s about that very moment when you’re doing something and wishing they were right there with you’

The sea will free me

“You have now reached infatuation’s final destination—the complete and merciless
devaluation of self.”

Elizabeth Gilbert – ‘Eat, Pray, Love

I am at this point, but this is not me.
This is not who I am
I am better than this.

The sea will free me
