My brain has been broken by awesomeness. I bet Barthes would really, really hate it that I used the fake word "awesomness".

Quotes Maijabeep Liked

Roland Barthes
“To try to write love is to confront the muck of language; that region of hysteria where language is both too much and too little, excessive (by the limitless expansion of the ego, by emotive submersion) and impoverished (by the codes on which love diminishes and levels it).”
Roland Barthes, A Lover's Discourse: Fragments
