“Isn’t it funny, I’m enjoying my hatred so much more than I ever enjoyed love. Love is temperamental. Tiring. It makes demands. Love uses you, changes its mind. But hatred, now that’s something you can use. Sculpt. Wield. It’s hard, or soft, however you need it. Love humiliates you, but Hatred cradles you.”
White Oleander, Janet Finch (via quotes-for-reference)

kleinemi:

For whatever we lose
(a you or a me)
it’s always ourselves
we find in the sea.
 - E.E. Cummings

“I remember your eyes: fifty attack dogs on a single leash.”

florencio espinoza, d. 19??
cause of death: epidural hematoma

life was where we suffered, then expired. are you still so eager to imitate life here?

I’m standing tall after
a wasted war.

I’m holding up. I’m holding up.
Even when the spaces of my spine
remind me of our distance, I don’t
miss you. No, not anymore.

"and i’m fighting for me now"
-valentina thompson (via theseoverusedwords)

LITERATURE MEME ( 2/8 CHARACTERS +  H e n r y  W i n t e r)

Henry’s a perfectionist, I mean, really-really kind of inhuman — very brilliant, very erratic and enigmatic. He’s a stiff, cold person, Machiavellian, ascetic and he’s made himself what he is by sheer strength of will. His aspiration is to be this Platonic creature of pure rationality and that’s why he’s attracted to the Classics, and particularly to the Greeks — all those high, cold ideas of beauty and perfection.
