Bon Iver - Skinny Love

Stay close to anything that makes you glad you are alive.
― (via psychedelic-orgasm)
Books could be an incredible adventure. I stayed under my blanket and barely moved, and no one would have guessed how my mind raced and my heart soared with stories.
― Paula McClain, The Paris Wife (via superbooked)
And so did warlike Antony neglect  
The worlds whole rule for Cleopatras sight.
Such wondrous powre hath wemens faire aspect,
To captive men, and make them all the world reject.
― Edmund Spenser, The Faerie Queene (via talesofpassingtime)
'Tis not the good, the wise, the brave,
That surest shine or highest rise;
The feather sports upon the wave,
The pearl in ocean’s cavern lies.
Each lesser star that studs the sphere
Sparkles with undiminished light;
Dark and eclipsed alone appear
The lord of day, the queen of night.
― Claud Field, Persian Literature (via talesofpassingtime)
You are the moment before the sun sinks into the horizon. The transient light - the glittering hours set against the fading, fading sky.
― Lang Leav, excerpt from If My Life Were A Day (via roomtemperaturedlovers)
I walk in the winds
in brightness
and darkness
