Encounters

We sometimes encounter people, even perfect strangers, who begin to interest us at first sight, somehow suddenly, all at once, before a word has been spoken.
Fyodor Dostoevsky

sometimes in class or whatnot, i see the most interesting people and I just like to watch them. This reminded me of how wonderful that feeling is.

Yes, some people attract us more than the others we meet, we often don't even know why..

hi LovelyGirl :) it's a nice feeling indeed, it has a lot to do w curiosity, I guess. the unknown has always something we cannot control and therefore is challenging in itself. As Thinker well says, most of the times we can't really tell why... maybe that's the nicest part in it.

This man seems to come from a strange, different land... we all do sometimes :)
Thinker : very nice quote, and once again, it feels quite true.
