If nature has made you for a giver, your hands are born open, and so is your heart; and though there may be times when your hands are empty, your heart is always full, and you can give things out of that—warm things, kind things, sweet things.
― Frances Hodgson Burnett, A Little Princess (via larmoyante)
Love is not affectionate feeling, but a steady wish for the loved person’s ultimate good as far as it can be obtained.
― C.S. Lewis (via saltandsteel)
