Introverts are observant by nature. They’re the quiet ones who prefer to sit at the sidelines and observe those around them. And no, they’re not judging people when they do this. This also doesn’t mean that introverts are wallflowers. They can talk your ear off if the topic is something they’re passionate or know a lot about. They simply don’t feel the need nor have the energy to be social butterflies.

How amazing it is to find someone who wants to hear about all the things that go on in your head.Nina LaCour, Hold Still
In the end, we love people into belief. We do not argue them into belief.Tim Keller
Travel makes one modest. You see what a tiny place you occupy in the world.Gustave Flaubert
