message 22: by Olivia (new)

Olivia (elven) | 3 comments “I had a sneaking suspicion that time was not constant, but I guess I could never prove it. I suppose it didn’t really matter. I even had a theory that time didn’t go in a straight line at all. I knew I was no Albert Einstein, but I had the sneaking suspicion that everything had happened, was happening, or would happen was really happening all the time. There was no past, present, and future. Everything was going on all at once and forever. If that was true, then each moment was eternity.” - Mark A. Roeder

One lives by watching the beloved on whom life is lost

“But if I'm it, the last of my kind, the last page of human history, like hell I'm going to let the story end this way. I may be the last one, but I am the one still standing.

And if this is humanity's last war, then I am the battlefield.” - The 5th Wave (Rick Yancey)

sara (daggerandrosae) | 12 comments "From William Blake to Lady Gaga, from Rousseau to Rumi to Tosca to Mister Rogers, it's a curiously uniform message, accepted from high to low: when in doubt, what to do? How do we know what's right for us? Every shrink, every career counselor, every Disney princess knows the answer: "Be yourself." "Follow your heart."

Only here's what I really, really want someone to explain to me. What if one happens to be possessed of a heart that can't be trusted--? What if the heart, for its own unfathomable reasons, leads one willfully and in a cloud of unspeakable radiance away from health, domesticity, civic responsibility and strong social connections and all the blandly-held common virtues and instead straight toward a beautiful flare of ruin, self-immolation, disaster?" - the Goldfinch

"Books are the mirrors of the soul." - Virginia Woolf

“I knew that if I allowed fear to overtake me, my journey was doomed.

Nothing could vanquish me.” - Cheryl Strayed, Wild: From Lost to Found on the Pacific Crest Trail
