LEOPOLD et BONAPARTE

Lest we forget how fragile we are.

Lest we forget how fragile we are.

What a shame we all became such fragile, broken things.

Hayley Williams

If you’re still looking for someone to complete you, to fill the void of your singly-healed heart, look for the breed that’s dying out. You will find them in coffee shops, parks and subways.
You will see them with backpacks, shoulder bags and suitcases. They will be inquisitive and soulful, and you will know by the first few minutes of talking to them.
They will write you letters and texts in verse. They are verbose, but not in the obnoxious way. They do not merely answer questions and give statements, but counter with deep thoughts and profound theories. They will enrapture you with their knowledge of words and ideas.
If you date someone who reads, then you, too, will live a thousand different lives.- Lauren Martin

And if you really want to get the measure of a man’s character, just watch how he treats the person that serves him.

When she was unhappy she would lock herself in the bedroom until she felt better. ‘It’s none of your business,’ she told him. ‘I don’t want anybody to see me when I’m like that. He used to call her a clam. ‘Open up,’ he hammered on all the locked doors of their life together, basement first, then maisonette, then mansion. ‘I love you, let me in.’ He needed her so badly, to reassure himself of his own existence, that he never comprehended the desperation in her dazzling, permanent smile, the terror in the brightness with which she faced the world, or the reasons why she hid when she couldn’t manage to beam.

"Elegance is not only what you wear; it’s how you wear it. Who you are inside. It is the way you decorate your house, what you surround yourself with, what books your read, what your interests are.”- Carolina Herrera
