and if he wants to leave
then let him leave
you are terrifying
and strange and beautiful
something not everyone knows how to love.

Carlos, sossegue, o amor
é isso que você está vendo:
hoje beija, amanhã não beija,
depois de amanhã é domingo
e segunda-feira ninguém sabe
o que será.

Inútil você resistir
ou mesmo suicidar-se.

Não se mate, oh não se mate.
Reserve-se todo para
as bodas que ninguém sabe
quando virão,
se é que virão

Carlos Drummond de Andrade, Não se mate

Half the harm that is done in this world is due to people who want to feel important. They don’t mean to do harm; but the harm does not interest them. Or they do not see it, or they justify it because they are absorbed in the endless struggle to think well of themselves.

T.S. Eliot  (via c-ovet)

(Source: venula, via quotefullness)

I do not love you except because I love you;
I go from loving to not loving you,
From waiting to not waiting for you
My heart moves from cold to fire.

I love you only because it’s you the one I love;
I hate you deeply, and hating you
Bend to you, and the measure of my changing love for you
Is that I do not see you but love you blindly.

Read not to contradict and confute, nor to believe and take for granted … but to weigh and consider.

Tous les deux ne trouvaient plus rien à se dire. Il y a un moment, dans les séparations, où la personne aimée n’est déjà plus avec nous.
