Love has a way of making us feel contractually obligated to stand by a person even when they’re slowly burying us along with them.

The Bravest Thing In Love, Shawn Binder (via thoughtcatalog)

"Elizabeth was enamoured from an early age. She never looked at anyone else. She was smitten from the start. In Prince Philip, she found her true love and the Queen has often acknowledged the tremendous support he has given to her - her rock.”

"Philip didn’t believe in public displays of affection, which made it easy to mask his feelings. But he revealed them privately in a touching letter to Queen Elizabeth in which he wondered if he deserved “all the good things which have happened to me, especially to have fallen in love completely and unreservedly.”

"I’m not really a talker when I have problems. It keeps me from seeming weak, but it also closes me off from the insights of other people."

We don’t learn to love each other well in the easy moments. Anyone is good company at a cocktail party. But love is born when we misunderstand one another and make it right, when we cry in the kitchen, when we show up uninvited with magazines and granola bars, in an effort to say, I love you.
