The Mixtapes

Welcome Note: before posting anything, i go through my bazillion (roughly) favourite quotes and pick the perfect (perfect imo, anyway) one to go with it. hope i manage to offer some dimension :) enjoy your time here!


“only in books i knew you
or in dreams where,
elusive, you were the bit
of dress that disappeared
in the city filled with light
which i knew and did not
know, its streets
constantly shifting.
nothing
prepared me to meet you,
to round a corner
and find you
whom heraclitus worshiped,
dipping his hand
in the river of your hair,
letting the current
take it 
to the small of your back.”
- gregory orr

“i didn’t tell them about women that have their bodies claimed like new worlds, or men who punch walls and wear their bruised knuckles like honour badges for all the tears they haven’t cried because they were raised to be soldiers, and soldiers do not cry.

- donna-marie riley, exhibit x

"there are as many nights as days, and the one is just as long as the other in the year’s course. even a happy life cannot be without a measure of darkness, and the word ‘happy’ would lose its meaning if it were not balanced by sadness."

- carl jung
