|Bio:||I'm a writer, thinking, reading, dreaming my life away. A composite of things all crammed into one head. |
Perpetually lonely, looking to find someone who can't possibly exist.
This is my own private spill.
"Bored of having to decipher body
languages and speaking in tongues; and I think
I’d rather create my own
isolated speech so the different
people within me may; converse
with one another." withinmybreast
"There are very few human beings who receive the truth, complete and staggering, by instant illumination. Most of them acquire it fragment by fragment, on a small scale, by successive developments, cellularly, like a laborious mosaic." Anais Nin
"To be nobody but yourself in a world which is doing its best night and day to make you like everybody else means to fight the hardest battle any human being can fight and never stop fighting." e.e. cummings
"Anything you can do to me, chances are I do it to myself already, and I hit harder than you ever could...." Marya Hornbacker
"There is much to be said for contentment and painlessness, for these bearable and submissive days, on which neither pain nor pleasure is audible, but pass by whispering and on tip-toe. But the worst of it is that it is just this contentment that I cannot endure. After a short time it fills me with irrepressible hatred an nausea. In desperation I have to escape and throw myself on the road to pleasure, or, if that cannot be, on the road to pain. When I have neither pleasure nor pain and have been breathing for a while the lukewarm insipid air of these so-called good and tolerable days, I feel so bad in my childish soul that I smash my moldering lyre of thanksgiving in the face of the slumbering god of contentment and would rather feel the very devil burn in me than this warmth of a well-heated room... "
Steppenwolf, Herman Hesse
"The pure and simple truth is rarely pure and never simple." Oscar Wilde
"When things are going well, i find myself doing a lot of things at the same time. When things are going badly, it's a question of searching around for what the hell i can do."
