If you are silent about your pain, they’ll kill you and say you enjoyed it.
-Zora Neale Hurston (via larmoyante)
She said, ‘I’m so afraid.’ And I said, ‘why?,’ and she said, ‘Because I’m so profoundly happy. Happiness like this is frightening.’ I asked her why and she said, ‘They only let you be this happy if they’re preparing to take something from you.’
-Khaled Hosseini, The Kite Runner (via fusels)
