Jar of Thoughts

"What are you doing?"
"Smelling you."
"Why?"
"You smell like coffee."

Kate smelled of cherries, of gunpowder, of the afternoon summer heat in Central Park. 

Castle smelled of ground coffee, of pencil shavings, of the stale musty air in a downtown comic book shop. 

Together: they smelled of storm clouds over New York, of passion mingling with lighting strikes and thunder claps, of rusty childhood swing sets.

Have you ever felt a potential love for someone?

Like, you don’t actually love them and you know you don’t, but you know you could. You realise that you could easily fall in love with them. It’s almost like the bud of a flower, ready to blossom but it’s just not quite there yet. And you like them a lot, you really do. You think about them often, but you don’t love them. You could, though. You know you could.

"Emotions are supposed to be raw, ugly, brutal…you don’t want someone to ‘sorta’ love you. You want that love to be a bursting flame, not a candle."

"He could very much care about Sara, but what’s the thing that we know about Sara? She can take care of herself. Part of what Oliver said to Felicity in that episode is that he doesn’t know if he’s willing to open himself up to having feelings for her, if in fact he does, because the danger is so imminent when you’re in close proximity to him…. Him working with her and her working with him is one thing, but a relationship is another." - Stephen Amell.

being tender for someone you’re into is so weird like at once you want to hold them to your chest and love them and stroke their hair and look after them forever but on the other hand you want to slam them against a wall and kiss them until their mouth is a bruise

There is this girl. We met two years ago and since then, time has been amazing. Not easy, of course, different countries, different continents even. We finally managed to move to New York together and I know the wait is totally worth it. We are not married yet, but I know we will. We don’t have kids yet, but I know we will. It is a strange feeling, but if you know, you know. I know. I know I will be with her forever and it is a great feeling I wish everyone will experience one day. And since yesterday I know one more thing. We knew that our first kid, if it is a girl, will be named Emma. It made my day today and it excites me to know my kid’s name. It’s like that. If you know, you know. I hope you know what I’m talking about.

8 years earlier, I probably would’ve given some embarrassing speech, confessed my love and scared her off. But I didn’t. Because somehow I just knew, this was all gonna work out.
