“I began to realize how important it was to be an enthusiast in life. If you are interested in something, no matter what it is, go at it full speed ahead. Embrace it with both arms, hug it, love it and above all become passionate about it. Lukewarm is no good.”—Roald Dahl (via isawtoday)
“I want to tell you I miss
you with no subtext. No guilt,
no anger, no expectation
that you’ll fix it. I don’t want
you to feel bad or to tell
me it will get better. This
is where we are meant to be
right now – me apart from you,
my hands a little empty and
my heart a little sad.
I just miss you.
I wanted you to know.”—anne, fyi (via versteur)
To be on the same wavelength as someone is a rarity.
Holding interesting, substantial, stimulating conversations in our generation is really underrated. To undress each other’s thoughts and make love to each other’s mind, that’s what to me is really considered “naked”. Be it completely innocent, platonic, paradoxical, in love, spontaneous confused, whatever.
Wondering where you’re going with life, asking questions and receiving answers you’ll forget in tomorrow’s day.
This is what I find important.
Someone I can vibe off. I’m talking about a raw soul, a naked mind, stripped back from inhibitions. Those 3 am conversations from which you know nothing will be the same.
“Monster" is derived from the Latin noun monstrum, "divine portent," itself formed on the root of the verb monere, "to warn." It came to refer to living things of anomalous shape or structure, or to fabulous creatures like the sphinx who were composed of strikingly incongruous parts, because the ancients considered the appearance of such beings to be a sign of some impending supernatural event. Monsters, like angels, functioned as messengers and heralds of the extraordinary. They served to announce impending revelation, saying, in effect, "Pay attention; something of profound importance is happening.”—My Words to Victor Frankenstein: by Susan Stryker (via arabellesicardi)
