I want to write a novel about silence. The things people don’t say.
― Virginia Woolf (via poetrea)
Isolation offered its own form of companionship: the reliable silence of her rooms, the steadfast tranquility of the evenings. The promise that she would find things where she put them, that there would be no interruption, no surprise. It greeted her at the end of each day and lay still with her at night.
― Jhumpa Lahiri, The Lowland (via bookmania)
I want to write poems on your skin with my lips.
― Eleven word story (via c0caine—kiss3s)

― nayyirah waheed  (via facina-oris)
If a writer falls in love with you, you can never die.

Why do you study philosophy?
It helps me understand things.
But what makes it relevant?
Plato says the purpose of philosophy is to teach us how to die.
There’s nothing to learn unless we’re living. In death we’re equal. It has that advantage over life.
