Lighthead’s Guide to the Galaxy


Ladies and gentlemen, ghosts and children of the state,
I am here because I could never get the hang of Time.
This hour, for example, would be like all the others
were it not for the rain falling through the roof.
I’d better not be too explicit. My night is careless
with itself, troublesome…

Words are no good; words don’t ever fit even what they are trying to say at… just a shape to fill a lack.
Addie Bundren from As I Lay Dying, William Faulkner (via spetharrific)
How often have I lain beneath rain on a strange roof, thinking of home.
William Faulkner, As I Lay Dying (via herpsichord)


Happy Birthday, Lord Byron, born 22 January 1788, died 19 April 1824
