Read the Printed Word!

An insignificant bundle of stardust playing with words and ashes. I am always inconsolable. Hopefully you are too.

"What if I told you I’m incapable of tolerating my own heart?"
by Virginia Woolf, Night and Day (via petrichour)
"The scene is memory and is therefore non-realistic. Memory takes a lot of poetic license. It omits some details; others are exaggerated, according to the emotional value of the articles it touches, for memory is seated predominantly in the heart."

"You can’t fill loneliness with people you have no intention of loving."
by Codi Ann Thomsen (via fables-of-the-reconstruction)
"

If you like, I can confess that none of the details here are true,
a crime for which perhaps I should be shot,

but you cannot deny the canaries singing at the top of each tree.
And if there are canaries, consider whether each note

might not be a body
buried someplace

no one remembers,

except for that one note
you just heard a canary sing

right overhead—

"

"Have enough courage to trust love one more time and always one more time."
"I do not believe that sheer suffering teaches. If suffering alone taught, all the world would be wise, since everyone suffers. To suffering must be added mourning, understanding, patience, love, openness, and the willingness to remain vulnerable."

"Cigarettes are devices she uses to mark time. It comforts her to know that just by holding something, she receives a temporary identity of Person Smoking a Cigarette. People on the other side of the street will see her smoking and know that she is part of the world of cigarette smokers. They will not ask questions. She has always feared that the world sees her as she sees herself—a strange, wandering thing that could easily become detached from gravity, float out of the atmosphere and into space without anyone noticing."

"For we live with those retrievals from childhood that coalesce and echo throughout our lives, the way shattered pieces of glass in a kaleidoscope reappear in new forms and are songlike in their refrains and rhymes, making up a single monologue. We live permanently in the recurrence of our own stories, whatever story we tell."
by Michael Ondaatje, Divisadero  (via letters-to-nobody)
