'Kate,' she said after a moment, 'stories never really end. They can go on and on and on. It's just that sometimes, at a certain point, one stops telling them.'

Come sleep with me: We won’t make Love,Love will make us.
Julio Cortázar (via kushandwizdom)

What do you mean less than nothing? I don’t think there is any such thing as less than nothing. Nothing is absolutely the limit of nothingness. It’s the lowest you can go. It’s the end of the line. How can something be less than nothing? If there were something that was less than nothing, then nothing would not be nothing, it would be something - even though it’s just a very little bit of something. But if nothing is nothing, then nothing has nothing that is less than it is.
E.B. White, Charlotte’s Web (via quoted-books)

I have learned to fail. And I have had my say.
Edna St. Vincent Millay, from Lines Written In Recapitulation (via violentwavesofemotion)

A man’s heart is a wretched, wretched thing. It isn’t like a mother’s womb. It won’t bleed. It won’t stretch to make room for you.
Khaled Hosseini, A Thousand Splendid Suns (via quotes-shape-us)

Your smile is my whiskey
Your love is my wine
It’s easy to see
You intoxicate me
