"Books are no more threatened by Kindle than stairs by elevators." Stephen Fry
"Do not stand at my grave and weep;
I am not there. I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow.
I am the diamond glints on snow.
I am the sunlight on ripened grain.
I am the gentle autumn rain.
When you awaken in the morning’s hush
I am the swift uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the soft stars that shine at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry;
I am not there. I did not die." - Mary Elizabeth Frye
"You can count your romantic Instagram photos, your Facebook profile pictures together, your reblogging of quotes and songs and pictures about love you have or once had, but ultimately these are pixels. They are scientific formulas developed into physical manifestations of your thoughts and memories, but that’s all they are. They are not real. You know what’s real? The alone time you spend with that love. The words they whisper in your ear when you’re falling asleep on their chest. The feeling of their hands brushing through your hair or scratching your back. The knowledge that they are currently loving you, they are currently wanting to be with no one else but you. That’s real. Nothing else." - for every time i find myself getting overwhelmed with media
"If you wish to travel far and fast, travel light. Take off all of your envies, jealousies, unforgiveness, selfishness, and fears." - Cesare Pavese (via gettingahealthybody)

"The writer learns to write, in the last resort, only by writing. He must get words onto paper even if he is dissatisfied with them." - Paul Johnson (via writingquotes)
"I will push myself and push myself,
Until I push myself over an edge."
"Are you sleeping? Wake up, you have an assignment to do!”
(half asleep) “But I’m napping.”
“But I wanted to spend the night on the phone with you.”
“How about I spend the night dreaming about you instead?" - 4 years later and he still knows how to pull a nice save
"I am in love with the
the quiet in my bones,
my own desires, and
the jumps and drops my
before I am in love
with any person." - I Am In Love, Even When I’m Not Saying “I Love You” To Anyone | Lora Mathis (via emotional-algebra)
