 Favorite Quote: He is merely miscast in a play.
He would have made the perfect knight in a different century, or a very good pagan prince in a time of heroes. He was born in the wrong era, on the wrong side of the river, with the ability to do anything and finding nothing he wants to do.

If you are a dreamer come in,

If you are a dreamer, a wisher, a liar,

A hoper, a pray-er, a magic-bean-buyer,

If you're a pretender come sit by my fire,

For we have some flax, golden tales to spin,

Come in!

    “ The stars are not wanted now: put out every one;
    Pack up the moon and dismantle the sun;
    Pour away the ocean and sweep up the wood.
    For nothing now can ever come to any good. ”

    WITTIANS!
    Robin Thicke
    is on his way to becoming the holder of the slot for #1 most popular song of all time.
    He is only 4 weeks from overtaking artists such as Elton John, Whitney Houston, and Mariah Carrey, and he’s already beaten Elvis Presley.
    Please stop listening to Blurred Lines.
    Stop watching the video.
    Stop buying the single.
    Just stop.
    For all that is good and holy in this world, do not do this to the history of music.

    A quote that completely describes me.
    If you asked me now who I am, the only answer I could give with any certainty would be my name: Charles Ryder.
    For the rest: my loves, my hates, down even to my deepest desires, I can no longer say whether these emotions are my own,
    or stolen from those I once so desperately wished to be.

    “The sea is emotion incarnate.
    It loves, hates, and weeps.
    It defies all attempts to capture it with words and rejects all shackles.
    No matter what you say about it, there is always that which you can't.”

    “He knew she was there by the rapture and the terror that seized on his heart.
    She was standing talking to a lady at the opposite end of the ground.
    There was apparently nothing striking either in her dress or her attitude.
    But for Levin she was as easy to find in that crowd as a rose among nettles.
    Everything was made bright by her. She was the smile that shed light on all round her.
    "Is it possible I can go over there on the ice, go up to her?" he thought.
    The place where she stood seemed to him a holy shrine, unapproachable, and there was one moment when he was almost retreating, so overwhelmed was he with terror. He had to make an effort to master himself,
    and to remind himself that people of all sorts were moving about her, and that he too might come there to skate. He walked down, for a long while avoiding looking at her as at the sun, but seeing her, as one does the sun, without looking.”
    ― Leo Tolstoy, Anna Karenina

    Oh the bitter winds are coming in
    And I'm already missing the summer
    Stockholm's cold but I've been told
    I was born to endure this kind of weather
    When it's you I find like a ghost in my mind
    I am defeated and I gladly wear the crown
    I'll be your Emmylou and I'll be your June
    If you'll be my Gram and my Johnny too
    No, I'm not asking much of you
    Just sing little darling, sing with me

    Your heart is like a great river after a long spell of rain, spilling over its banks.
    All signposts that once stood on the ground are gone,
    inundated and carried away by that rush of water.
    And still the rain beats down on the surface of the river.
    Every time you see a flood like that on the news you tell yourself: That’s it. That’s my heart.

    Haruki Murakami

    Humans are the only animal that blushes,
    laughs,
    has religion,
    wages war,
    and kisses with lips.
    So in a way, the more you kiss with lips, the more human you are.

    Jonathan Safran Foer

    “You must live in the present,
    launch yourself on every wave, find your eternity in each moment.
    Fools stand on their island of opportunities and look toward another land.
    There is no other land; there is no other life but this.”

    Henry David Thoreau

    Do you know what I need?
    To escape into the mountains, surrounded by tall trees, I will lay on the moss, and breath in the scent of mushrooms, flowers and wet soil.

    ‎”Boys are told from a young age that whatever they do will be excused under the “boys will be boys” mantra, and that “boys will be boys” mentality leads to what I call the “BOILING FROG” problem of women’s sexual boundaries. I call it that because if you put a frog into a pot of boiling water, it will jump right out, but if you put a frog into a pot of room-temperature water and slowly heat it to a boil, the frog will acclimate as it heats and never jump out, eventually boiling to death.
    Similarly, when we learn as young girls to tolerate “low-level” boundary violations like the ones we often are forced to suffer in silence at school, at home and on the street – bra-snapping, boob-grabbing, @ss pinching, catcalling, d1.ck flashing “all in good fun” relentless violations that adults and authorities routinely ignore – it makes it harder for us to notice when even greater boundaries are being violated, eventually leading to the reality that many women who are r@ped just freeze and fall silent, because that’s what they’ve been taught to do over and over since day one.
    You tell me what’s more infantilizing: repeatedly letting boys (and grown men) off the hook for their behavior because “boys will be boys” and we can’t ever expect any differently, or creating a consent standard in which all partners take active responsibility for their partner’s safety, and which acknowledges the truly diseased se.xual culture we’re soaking in every day.”

    " The sea is everything.
    It covers seven tenths of the terrestrial globe.
    Its breath is pure and healthy.
    It is an immense desert,
    where man is never lonely, for he feels life stirring on all sides.
    The sea is only the embodiment of a supernatural and wonderful existence.
    It is nothing but love and emotion; it is the Living Infinite. ”

    "Come to the meadows with me and play.
    Put on your dresses of red and gold;
    For summer is past, and the days grow cold."
