"Knowing how to be solitary is central to the art of loving. When we can be alone, we can be with others without using them as an escape."
bell hooks (via monsieurtomfuckery)
someone studying atoms is really just a bunch of atoms trying to understand themselves

This is so poetic.

Welcome to Banff.
"You may not be her first, her last, or her only. She loved before she may love again. But if she loves you now, what else matters? She’s not perfect—you aren’t either, and the two of you may never be perfect together but if she can make you laugh, cause you to think twice, and admit to being human and making mistakes, hold onto her and give her the most you can. She may not be thinking about you every second of the day, but she will give you a part of her that she knows you can break—her heart. So don’t hurt her, don’t change her, don’t analyze and don’t expect more than she can give. Smile when she makes you happy, let her know when she makes you mad, and miss her when she’s not there."
Bob Marley (via observando)
Darlings, sometimes love will come to you like a fire to a forest. When it does, be braver than I was. Just leave. Take only what you can carry. No tears, no second thoughts. You have hands like tinder boxes, the smallest spark will kill you.
Get in the car. Take water to the maps. Avoid gas stations. Don’t look at the flames dancing in the rear view mirror. Go to new cities, climb on the rooftops and slow dance with your coldest memories. Wallpaper your new home with every dusty, desperate love letter you swore you’d never send.
Find a stranger with sharp edges and uncharted hips. Press your stories into their skin and forget you ever knew his name. Just promise you won’t think of embers or smoke.
Even when there is ash in your hair. Even when there is soot in your mouth.
"The size of a man’s head does not determine his sense of reasoning neither can the size of his leg determine how far he can go in life."
― Bamigboye Olurotimi (via psych-quotes)
"That’s what you never got. It takes an entire lifetime to write the words “And they lived happily ever after.”"
"For I have known them all already, known them all—
Have known the evenings, mornings, afternoons,
I have measured out my life with coffee spoons."
T.S. Eliot, The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock and Others (via observando)
The best ever.
