What I post is stuff that grabs my attention. I like books, kittens, killer whales, and well a bunch of other stuff that you can probably figure out by going through my random posts.

If there is no love in the world, we will make a new world, and we will give it walls, and we will furnish it with soft, red interiors, from the inside out, and give it a knocker that resonates like a diamond falling to a jeweller’s felt so that we should never hear it. Love me, because love doesn’t exist, and I have tried everything that does.
Jonathan Safran FoerEverything Is Illuminated (via feellng)
This is the strange way of the world, that people who simply want to love are instead forced to become warriors.
I know I am talking nonsense, but I’d rather go rambling on, and partly expressing something I find it difficult to express, than to keep on transmitting faultless platitudes.
