"Life imitates art far more than art imitates life" - Oscar Wilde


My brain and this world don’t fit each other.


G.K. Chesterton, The Innocence of Father Brown

(via mercurieux)

"Go into the arts. I’m not kidding. The arts are not a way to make a living. They are a very human way of making life more bearable. Practicing an art, no matter how well or badly, is a way to make your soul grow , for heaven’s sake. Sing in the shower. Dance to the radio. Tell stories. Write a poem to a friend, even a lousy poem. Do it as well as you possibly can. You will get an enormous reward. You will have created something."

Kurt Vonnegut  (via ablogwithaview)

"Sleep is good. And books are better."

Tyrion Lannister - A Clash Of Kings (via chris-reads-books)

Arthur Rimbaud, Evening Prayer


"I was drawn to all the wrong things: I liked to drink, I was lazy, I didn’t have a god, politics, ideas, ideals. I was settled into nothingness; a kind of non-being, and I accepted it. I didn’t make for an interesting person. I didn’t want to be interesting, it was too hard. What I really wanted was only a soft, hazy space to live in, and to be left alone."

"It’s the questions we can’t answer that teach us the most. They teach us how to think. If you give a man an answer, all he gains is a little fact. But give him a question and he’ll look for his own answers."

Patrick Rothfuss, The Wise Man’s Fear (via quotes-shape-us)

"If I were reading a book and happened to strike a wonderful passage I would close the book then and there and go for a walk. I hated the thought of coming to the end of a good book. I would tease it along, delay the inevitable as long as possible, But always, when I hit a great passage, I would stop reading immediately. Out I would go, rain, hail, snow or ice, and chew the cud."

Henry Miller, Plexus (via quotes-shape-us)
