"I felt a haunting loneliness sometimes, and felt it in others—young clerks in the dusk, wasting the most poignant moments of night and life."
F. Scott Fitzgerald, The Great Gatsby (via indicates)
"I want to be like water. I want to slip through fingers, but hold up a ship."
Michelle Williams (via vashti)
"She was beautiful, but she was beautiful in the way a forest fire was beautiful."
Neil Gaiman (via castlekeys)
"If I find in myself desires which nothing in this world can satisfy, the only logical explanation is that I was made for another world."
"Some people bring out the worst in you, others bring out the best, and then there are those remarkably rare, addictive ones who just bring out the most. Of everything. They make you feel so alive that you’d follow them straight into hell, just to keep getting your fix."
Karen Marie Moning (via allyourreasons)
"I wish I’d done everything on Earth with you."
F. Scott Fitzgerald, The Great Gatsby (via aurelle)
"Summer was our best season: it was sleeping on the back screeneed porch in cots, or trying to sleep in the treehouse; summer was everything good to eat; it was a thousand colors in a parched landscape."
"We felt the imprisonment of being a girl, the way it made your mind active and dreamy, and how you ended up knowing which colors went together. We knew that the girls were our twins, that we all existed in space like animals with identical skins, and that they knew everything about us though we couldn’t fathom them at all. We knew, finally, that the girls were really women in disguise, that they understood love and even death, and that our job was merely to create the noise that seemed to fascinate them."
Jeffrey Eugenides, The Virgin Suicides (via ficio)
"Cherish your solitude. Take trains by yourself to places you have never been. Sleep alone under the stars. Learn how to drive a stick shift. Go so far away that you stop being afraid of not coming back. Say no whenever you don’t want to do something. Say yes if your instincts are strong, even if everyone around you disagrees. Decide whether you want to be liked or admired. Decide if fitting in is more important than finding out what you’re doing here. And believe in kissing."
Eve Ensler (via venula)
"But it’s no use going back to yesterday, because I was a different person then."
Alice in Wonderland | Lewis Carroll
