mythology meme | [1/5] relationships – Cupid & Psyche 

Psyche was a stunningly beautiful girl born to a king and queen. People throughout the land worshipped her, so much so that they forgot their love for the goddess Aphrodite. Angered, Aphrodite sent her son, Cupid, to punish Psyche by pricking her with one of his arrows and making her fall in love with the ugliest thing he can find, but when Cupid saw Psyche’s radiant beauty, he shot himself with the arrow instead. With the help of the sun god Apollo, Psyche and Cupid were married. Cupid never showed himself during the day, but she met him in the dark when she could not see his face and fell in love with him. One night, Psyche decided that she must see her husband’s face. When she saw his beautiful face, she felt foolish to have doubted him. Cupid fled their mansion, because love cannot live where there is no trust. Psyche pleaded to Aphrodite to bring help bring him back, and Aphrodite forced her through a series of trials. When she had completed the trials, Cupid requested that Zeus make her immortal, and they lived together forever on Mount Olympus.

Do not sit still; start moving now. In the beginning, you may not go in the direction you want, but as long as you are moving, you are creating alternatives and possibilities. Rodolfo Costa (via quotes-shape-us)

Closing your eyes isn’t going to change anything. Nothing’s going to disappear just because you can’t see what’s going on. In fact, things will even be worse the next time you open your eyes. That’s the kind of world we live in. Keep your eyes wide open. Only a coward closes his eyes. Closing your eyes and plugging up your ears won’t make time stand still. Haruki Murakami, Kafka on the Shore (via quotes-shape-us)

I kissed him, trying to bring him back. I kissed him and let my lips rest against his so that our breath mingled and the tears from my eyes became salt on his skin, and I told myself that, somewhere, tiny particles of him would become tiny particles of me, ingested, swallowed, alive perpetual. I wanted to press every bit of me against him. I wanted to will something into him. I wanted to give him every bit of life I felt and force him to life.
