"I’m writing a play about the nature of truth, and how difficult it is to convey the truth when everybody is speaking a different language. For example, the word ‘terrorist’ and the word ‘freedom fighter’ are used to refer to the exact same people at the exact same time. With everyone speaking differently, truth is almost impossible to agree upon. Yet believing in the existence of truth is the only thing that keeps us from devolving into tribal warfare. Because without the existence of truth, the person who is most powerful becomes the person who is right."

Only my books anoint me,
and a few friends,
those who reach into my veins.

Anne Sexton, from “The Witch’s Life” (via litverve)
Do you love me enough that I may be weak with you? Everyone loves strength, but do you love me for my weakness? That is the real test.
Alain de Botton, Essays in Love (via durianquotes)
Intimacy is the capacity to be rather weird with someone - and finding that that’s ok with them.
Alain de Botton (via quotes-shape-us)

Audrey Hepburn & Humphrey Bogart in Sabrina; 1954.
If you haven’t the strength to impose your own terms upon life, then you must accept the terms it offers you.

It is in man’s heart that the life of nature’s spectacle exists; to see it, one must feel it.
