“and i, infinitesimal being, 
drunk with the great starry

mystery, 
i felt myself a pure part 
of the abyss, 
i wheeled with the stars, 
my heart broke loose on the wind.”
- pablo neruda

hemingway: what is it?

gil: would you read it?

hemingway: your novel?

gil: yah, it’s like 400 pages long and I’m just looking for an opinion.

hemingway: my opinion is that I hate it.

gil: you haven’t even read it yet.

hemingway: and i’ll hate it if it’s bad because i hate bad writing. if it’s good i’ll be envious and i’ll hate it all the more. you don’t want the opinion of another writer.

The Neighbourhood - Sweater Weather

showslow:

Sweater Weather by The Neighbourhood

She knows what I think about
And what I think about
One love, two mouths
One love, one house
No shirt, no blouse
Just us, you find out
Nothing that I wouldn’t wanna tell you about, no

'Cause it's too cold
For you here and now
So let me hold
Both your hands in the holes of my sweater

(Source: advanse)

“call me rough, ill-tempered, slovenly— i tell you, 

every tenderness i have ever known

has been nothing 

but thwarted violence, an ache 

so permanent and deep, the lightest touch 

awakens it…it is impossible

to care enough. i have returned 

with a second symphony 

and 15 piano variations

which i’ve named prometheus,

after the rogue titan, the half-a-god 

who knew the worst sin is to take 

what cannot be given back.

i smile and bow, and the world is loud.”

- rita dove

(via thedailylovejournal)

"she looks as if she’s blowing a kiss at me,

and suddenly the sky is a scissor.”

- arctic monkeys, that’s where you’re wrong
