It’s true, I think, as Kenko says in his Idleness,
That all beauty depends upon disappearance,
The bitten edges of things,
the gradual sliding away
Into tissue and memory,
the uncertainty
And dazzling impermanence of days we beg our meanings from,
And their frayed loveliness.

Charles Wright, from “Lonesome Pine Special” (via litverve)

And the end of all our exploring
Will be to arrive where we started
And know the place for the first time.

If equal affection cannot be,
Let the more loving one be me.

W.H. Auden

Lemony Snicket  (via elige)

So many people are shut up tight inside themselves like boxes, yet they would open up, unfolding quite wonderfully, if only you were interested in them.

Do you ever wonder whether people would like you more or less if they could see inside you? …I always wonder about that. If people could see me the way I see myself—if they could live in my memories—would anyone, anyone, love me
John Green (via psych-facts)
