just because.

All great deeds and all great thoughts have a ridiculous beginning. Great works are often born on a street corner or in a restaurant's revolving door. 
Albert Camus

Ah, mon cher, for anyone who is alone, without God and without a master, the weight of days is dreadful.
Albert Camus

One is loved because one is loved. No reason is needed for loving. 
Paulo Coelho

Pitiful is the person who is afraid of taking risks. Perhaps this person will never be disappointed or disillusioned; perhaps she won't suffer the way people do when they have a dream to follow. But when the person looks back--she will hear her heart.
Paulo Coelho

The dream was always running ahead of me. To catch up, to live for a moment in unison with it, that was the miracle.
Anais Nin

My ideas usually come not at my desk but in the midst of living.
Anais Nin

The moment of that kiss contained every happy moment I had ever lived.
Paulo Coelho

It is a common enough case, that of a man being suddenly captivated by a woman nearly the opposite of his ideal.
George Eliot

Delicious autumn! My very soul is wedded to it, and if I were a bird I would fly about the earth seeking the successive autumns. 
George Eliot

I like not only to be loved, but also to be told that I am loved. I am not sure that you are of the same kind. But the realm of silence is large enough beyond the grave. This is the world of light and speech, and I shall take leave to tell you that you are very dear. 
George Eliot
