the most beautiful person

via tumblr

"you know when you sometimes meet someone so beautiful, and when you actually talk to them and five minutes later they are as dull as a brick? then there's other people, when you meet them you think, "not bad. they're okay." and then you get to know them and their face just sort of becomes them. like their personality's written all over it.
and they just turn into something so beautiful."

amy pond | quote via dr. who

you know how this happens sometimes?
you notice those flashy, gorgeous people and think they're amazing.
but after hanging around them for a while, you realize how shallow they are.
maybe they have something deeper that you have to dig a little harder to get,
but they just don't seem very impressive after a few conversations.

but there are these other people.
the ones that become more beautiful after each conversation.
the ones that you never looked at twice about when you glanced across the room.
the ones that you never spoke to enough.
you said "hi" to them once or twice, and never thought about it again.

but then you see them more, and you start talking to them more out of necessity than want.
then you start to see things you've never noticed about them before.
(and to me, this is the best part of friendships)

for the first time, you notice their eye color.
you realize how deep their eyes are.
you suddenly see how beautiful they are when they smile.
the way they hug their siblings,
or help their friends.

their face becomes them.

then you start to realize how much you have in common.
you start enjoying conversations with them,
and when they leave, it seems
like a part of you left with them.
you're more than simply "friends" now,
you've become kindred spirits.
and it'll take something stronger than legions of mighty armies to break that bond.

faces are just faces,
until they become a person.


  1. When I was little I wanted to be one of those people that everyone loves from the first second. Know I hate them because I know they only steal attention from those that really matter.


  2. Lizzy (is it alright if I call you that? I read your "miss. e" page and thought I might), that's just so beautiful. I love it. Beautiful, wonderful job. :)

  4. Sigh... >< Another GREAT post! <3 it!

    I have to admit, Im guilty of ignoring the "okay-ish" people...

    It's true tho, as in I realised that the most amazing people are the ones who seem quiet at first. And when you get to know them, it's like, "Wait, why weren't we friends earlier?!"


  5. I know exactly what you're talking about.
    I love that last quote!

  6. Hi elisabeth. I'm vanessa, a neophyte to the ways of blogging, and i don't want to be creepy or anything (though i'm just a creepy person in general so it's hard for me NOT to be) but i've maybe kinda sorta been stalking your blog. BUT DON'T WORRY! i don't plan on kidnapping you. I just wanted to say you are beautiful, beautiful girl who sees the world so wonderfully and i wish i could get my blog to be half as decent as yours. You remind me so much of my best friend, and my best friend is like the girl i wish i could be. Anyway, really sorry about this long comment and possibly freaking you out. I'm not good with words like you are ._.

    1. aw girl, that soo made my day. have a beautiful new year! xx.


leave a kind thought (or two)
