an abundance of quotes.

"i want to tear myself from this place, from this reality, rise up like a cloud and float away, melt into this humid summer night and dissolve somewhere far, over the hills. but i am here, my legs blocks of concrete, my lungs empty of air, my throat burning. there will be no floating away." - khaled hosseini, the kite runner


“memory is a tenuous thing. . . .

flickering glimpses, blue
and white, like ancient,
decomposing 16mm film.
happiness escapes
me there, where faces
are vague and yesterday
seems to come tied
up in ribbons of pain.

happiness? i look for it instead
in today, where memory
is something i can still
touch, still rely on.
i find it in the smiles
of new friends, the hope
blossoming inside.

my happiest memories
have no place in the
past; they are those
i have yet to create.” 

- ellen hopkins, impulse 


"and above all, watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places. those who don’t believe in magic will never find it."- roald dahl


"he closed his eyes and sank into the warm dusk that separates consciousness and sleep, where reality bends and sways to the wind of thought, and where creativity blossoms in its freedom from boundaries and all things are possible." - christopher paolini


 "if you’ve ever had that feeling of loneliness, of being an outsider, it never quite leaves you. you can be happy or successful or whatever, but that thing still stays within you." - tim burton
