#i love the quiet #i love the light pouring in #i love the stillness and the movement #i love how we’re on the outside looking in #i love that it’s private #it’s stefan and elena #they exist somewhere else from the rest of the world #they create their own space #they create a place where they can be safe and free and happy #if this isn’t a kingdom then i don’t know what is (x)
"It’s hard being a girl. We strive to be and look like people other than ourselves, and I sort of got sucked into that. You are never pretty enough or skinny enough. I feel like once you stop focusing on yourself so much and break out of analyzing everything about who you are and what you look like, you have a better perspective. Now I’m not trying to be something I’m not. I know what I believe in. I know my morals and I know what I have to offer. I am a five-foot-two girl with big eyebrows and I’m fine with it."

"I’m going to be Queen of France one day and I hope to be a good Queen. But France has you and your mother to look after her welfare, Scotland only has me. If it ever becomes a choice between our two countries, I will choose mine. In whatever way necessary."
