"Often, moreover, it is…that aspect of our being that society finds eccentric, ridiculous, or disagreeable, that holds our sweet waters, our secret well of happiness, the key to our equanimity in malevolent climes."
– Tom Robbins (via observando)
"Sometimes we get sad about things and we don’t like to tell other people that we are sad about them. We like to keep it a secret. Or sometimes, we are sad but we really don’t know why we are sad, so we say we aren’t sad but we really are."
– Mark Haddon, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time (via wordsnquotes)

"People in general attach too much importance to words. They are under the illusion that talking effects great results. As a matter of fact, words are, as a rule, the shallowest portion of all the argument. They but dimly represent the great surging feelings and desires which lie behind. When the distraction of the tongue is removed, the heart listens."
– Theodore Dreiser, Sister Carrie (via wordsnquotes)

(via wordsnquotes)

Don’t tell me that this isn’t real. This is authentic. We are beautiful and raw. Here is the bitter taste of my choice. This is the desperate beat of my heart. Your love is the poison that runs through my veins. Here is the languidity of my madness.
I’d die for this. I’d die for you.
So don’t you destroy that with your words. If you are going to walk away from this, don’t you dare leave me with your worthless lies.
