Hello friend

sit down
have a cup
of coffee.
or...
would you rather
have me?

don't wince.

It’s dark because you are trying too hard. Lightly child, lightly. Learn to do everything lightly. Yes, feel lightly even though you’re feeling deeply. Just lightly let things happen and lightly cope with them. I was so preposterously serious in those days…Lightly, lightly—it’s the best advice ever given me. So throw away your baggage and go forward. There are quicksands all about you, sucking at your feet, trying to suck you down into fear and self-pity and despair. That’s why you must walk so lightly. Lightly, my darling.
Aldous Huxley (via wordsthat-speak)

You can keep as quiet as you like, but one of these days somebody is going to find you.

他不知道他为什么不能停止想念你。我昨天刚刚见到他。那个男孩子还很帅,微笑还能让女人目眩。也有男人喜欢他。我好羡慕他。一位完美的人不可能活在这个世界。当今社会是向地狱,什么都很难过。

阿,对不起,我的思路出轨了。

我跟他聊天一下。还没有五分钟,谈话的主题突然变得关于你。他真的很爱你。我从早就知道了。你还记得你们第一次互相遇见吗?好浪漫哦。我快要吐血了。太俗气。

他为什么爱你?其实说我觉得你们是不匹配的情侣。你只是个不同女孩子,没有什么特别。对,你不丑。有时候你也很可爱。你有个无辜的光环,这就是你的美德。这也是你的缺陷。你还不明白人作恶的能力。

你不明白你自己也有这个能力。

他无法克服你们的分手。如果我是他,我一定会找到新的女朋友然后把你的回忆都忘记了。他说不然他喝了一海洋多的白酒,他千万不能忘记你。想来,你们两位白吃有一样的缺陷。

如果人没有心,生活一定会变成很容易。我看凶手们有狼的血里流淌在他们的矿脉。

知道这一点:你是一只狼。那只羊的心还有跳动。别追他。狼应该与狼。

The thinker or artist whose better self has fled into his works feels an almost malicious joy when he sees his body and spirit slowly broken into and destroyed by time; it is as if he were in a corner, watching a thief at work on his safe, all the while knowing that it is empty and that all his treasures have been rescued.
Friedrich Nietzsche, Human, All-Too-Human (via miraculousorgan)

I.

Words have so much power– writers have to shape this hefty material with nothing more than this squishy thing in between our ears and that pumpy thing in our chests. Sometimes they don’t even agree with each other. Until now, I still don’t really understand how these strings of letters can evoke images in our minds, some so powerful that it changes lives.

But it’s not always for the better. Sometimes it’s for the worse. I don’t know about other people, but I do believe in blissful ignorance. There are some things that some people are better off not knowing. This erasure of innocence is sometimes painful, scarring even.

II.

Living is hard. Writing is hard. Everything is hard. But don’t pity those who make everything harder for themselves and enjoy the challenge. At least they have direction.

Pity the poor souls who are stuck in that region of unfeeling, uneasy boredom. It’s a lethal tar pit, the endless conjuring of empty dreams. Even walking feels pointless when you’re going around in circles.
