“I think also that our bodies are in truth naked. We are only lightly covered with buttoned cloth; and beneath these pavements are shells, bones and silence.”—Virginia Woolf, The Waves (via antevorta, pinpricks-deactivated20110115)
“If someone told me that I could live my life again free of depression provided I was willing to give up the gifts depression has given me—the depth of awareness, the expanded consciousness, the increased sensitivity, the awareness of limitation, the tenderness of love, the meaning of friendship, the appreciation of life, the joy of a passionate heart—I would say, ‘This is a Faustian bargain! Give me my depressions. Let the darkness descend. But do not take away the gifts that depression, with the help of some unseen hand, has dredged up from the deep ocean of my soul and strewn along the shores of my life. I can endure darkness if I must; but I cannot live without these gifts. I cannot live without my soul.”—David N. Elkins (via human-voices)
“Ugly is irrelevant. It is an immeasurable insult to a woman, and then supposedly the worst crime you can commit as a woman. But ugly, as beautiful, is an illusion. A matter of taste, a whim, an eye, a beholder, an opinion, a spin, light crossing the frame, paint, projection. The moment. Context.”—Margaret Cho (via cassket)
“I’m a simple dressmaker. I’m not a fashion designer. I’m not following the trend. I’m not checking the merchandise. I’m not checking what is selling good. I’m not interested in fashion generally. I’m just interested in how to cut clothes.”—
I think tumblr should buy a country so all of us can relocate there permanently. It'll have nation-wide free wireless internet. We can live in houses according to blog categories and we'll stalk the good looking people on tumblr from an awkward distance. The only foods on our diet will be pizza and nutella. And we'll all have a gazillion cats who dance. Of course, a HP Marathon once a week with the regular Misfits and Spongebob. Unicorns will be our chosen form of transportation. At tumblrland, we'll embrace each others' awkwardness and best of all, our humors will finally be properly appreciated. And we'll all be forever alone, together.
