“I have for you altogether the highest hopes: you will be able to see clearly much that was cloudy. Of course, you will then feel more lonely than ever, as I do.”—Friedrich Nietzsche, from Selected Letters (via hollowstimulation)
“Αυτούς που ονειρεύονται τους αναγνωρίζεις, έχουν στα μάτια ένα πέπλο θλίψης.
Έχουν τη μελαγχολία αποκοιμισμένη στην άκρη των χειλιών, έχουν το ύφος ανθρώπου που κάτι ψάχνει απελπισμένα.
Το ονείρεμα είναι κουραστικό, δεν είναι για τον καθένα.
Είναι για τους θαρραλέους όπως η θάλασσα και η αγάπη…”—
“In everyone’s life, at some time, our inner fire goes out. It is then burst into flame by an encounter with another human being. We should all be thankful for those people who rekindle the inner spirit.”—Albert Schweitzer (via quotestuff)
“I love you as the plant that never blooms
but carries in itself the light of hidden flowers;
thanks to your love a certain solid fragrance,
risen from the earth, lives darkly in my body.”—Pablo Neruda (via man-of-prose)
“It wasn’t martyrdom or altruism or anything as lovely as all that. I would simply be doing what was right for the third or fourth time in my life, and that was good. I realized how naive and unrealistic people are to think you can be both right and happy. If it happens that way, you are truly one of the blessed. Right, however, should win if you have to choose.”—Jonathan Carroll, Voice of Our Shadow (via browndresswithwhitedots)
“I was half in love with her by the time we sat down. That’s the thing about girls. Every time they do something pretty, even if they’re not much to look at, or even if they’re sort of stupid, you fall half in love with them, and then you never know where the hell you are. Girls. Jesus Christ. They can drive you crazy. They really can.”—J.D Salinger, The Catcher in the Rye Ch.10 (via man-of-prose)
