"Climb the mountain so you can see the world, not so the world can see you."

"But one can feel affection for somebody and not want to say so."

Jean-Paul Sartre, from The Age Of Reason (via violentwavesofemotion)

"She had a strange feeling in the pit of her stomach, like when you’re swimming and you want to put your feet down on something solid, but the water’s deeper than you think and there’s nothing there."

Julia Gregson, East of the Sun  (via prelovers)

"Waiting for my words to catch like I’m trying to strike a match that’s soaking wet."



My boyfriend broke up with me and my 80 year old, 5 foot tall, Indian grandmother told me that “there are lots of men…”

I thought she was then going to say “…in the sea” but she said “…they’re like flies” and made a disgusted face.

She hates flies.

I like the sound of your grandmother.
