Spend your money on the things money can buy. Spend your time on the things money can’t buy.
Haruki Murakami, The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle (via wordsnquotes)
My dear,
Find what you love and let it kill you.
Let it drain you of your all. Let it cling onto your back and weigh you down into eventual nothingness.
Let it kill you and let it devour your remains.
For all things will kill you, both slowly and fastly, but it’s much better to be killed by a lover.
Falsely yours

Charles Bukowski

HAPPY BIRTHDAY CHARLES BUKOWSKI!

"We need to be really bothered once in a while. How long is it since you were really bothered? About something important, about something real?" - Fahrenheit 451

Lighthead’s Guide to the Galaxy

eating-poetry:

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)

Ten Quotes

Perhaps all the dragons in our lives are princesses who are only waiting to see us act, just once, with beauty and courage. Perhaps everything that frightens us is, in its deepest essence, something helpless that wants our love.
Rainer Maria Rilke, Letters to a Young Poet (via quotes-shape-us)
Let us read, and let us dance; these two amusements will never do any harm to the world.
Voltaire (via quotes-shape-us)
