i want you quotes

“There was another reason. The main one.”
“Reason?” I said stupidly.
“Why I married you.”
"Which was?” I don’t know what I expected him to say, perhaps some further revelation of his family’s contorted affairs. What he did say was more of a shock, in its way.
"Because I wanted you.” He turned from the window to face me. “More than I ever wanted anything in my life,” he added softly.”

When it rains, and you don’t know why, you have several options. First, you could simply not ask why—not follow up on the question, or never think of the question in the first place. This is the Ignore command. Second, you could try to devise some sort of explanation, the Explain command. Third, you could enjoy the sensation of mysteriousness—the Worship command.

Each time you select Explain, the best-case scenario is that you get an explanation. But then this explanation itself is subject to the same dilemma—Explain, Worship, or Ignore? Each time you hit Explain, science grinds for a while, returns an explanation, and then another dialog box pops up. As good rationalists, we feel duty-bound to keep hitting Explain, but it seems like a road that has no end. 


You hit Explain for life, and get chemistry; you hit Explain for chemistry, and get atoms; you hit Explain for atoms, and get electrons and nuclei; you hit Explain for nuclei, and get quantum chromodynamics and quarks; you hit Explain for how the quarks got there, and get back the Big Bang … We can hit Explain for the Big Bang, and wait while science grinds through its process, and maybe someday it will return a perfectly good explanation. But then that will just bring up another dialog box.


So, if we continue long enough, we must come to a special dialog box, a new option, an Explanation That Needs No Explanation, a place where the chain ends—and this, maybe, is the only explanation worth knowing. There—I just hit Worship.

I'm so sorry for this stupid question, but I was going through the Rucas tag and I saw a post with the quote from Ski Lodge "That means you, Riley. I choose you. And I really want you to choose me." But they put under the quote: Me: *then there's a gif with someone saying "I hear something I don't understand and it makes me scared!" And the person tagged it "pucas" and "lucaya" "Maya Hart," etc. What does that mean? Was it a hate post? If so, why would they put it in the Rucas tag?

Yeah that was definitely a ‘hate post’. They put it in the rucas tag cause they’re bitter and salty that their ship didn’t end up together. That’s why most of us avoid scrolling through the tag like the plague lol. 

They can be mad all they want, Rucas is still together and still endgame. 

i want you.

and i don’t just mean physical. i want you when you’re bursting with happiness and i want you when you feel so sad you can’t get out of bed. i want you when it pours down with rain and i want you when the sun decides to come out. i want to know who means the world to you, who inspires you, who you never want to speak to again. i want to learn about past events and i want to create new experiences together. i want to understand how you think and how you feel. i want so much to be there to love you when you need me and want you to know i’ll be here no matter what when you don’t. i want you to know that even through rocky times, i’ll always be here wanting you.

—  i just want you to want me too.
