"Seldom, very seldom, does complete truth belong to any human disclosure; seldom can it happen that something is not a little disguised or a little mistaken."

I LOVE THIS PAGE I LOVE IT SO MUCH IT MAKES ME SOOOOO HAPPY 


You are made
out of comets
and stars.

Do not surround
yourself with those
that treat you like
dirt and dust.



For those who are not frightened by the solitude, everything will have a different taste…

In solitude, they will learn that saying ‘No’ does not always show a lack of generosity and that saying ‘Yes’ is not always a virtue.

Female character meme: A female character you relate to.
Anne Shirley, Anne of Green Gables.

I cannot remember the books I’ve read any more than the meals I have eaten; even so, they have made me.

Last year I abstained
this year I devour

without guilt

Robin Sloan, Mr Penumbra’s 24-Hour Bookstore


I wondered if the fire had been out to get me. I wondered if all fire was related, like Dad said all humans were related, if the fire that had burned me that day while I cooked hot dogs was somehow connected to the fire I had flushed down the toilet and the fire burning at the hotel. i didn’t have the answers to those questions, but what I did know was that I lived in a world that at any moment could erupt into fire. it was the sort of knowledge that kept you on your toes.
The Glass Castle by Jeannette Walls
