  1. my lips are perpetually chapped. three nights ago i learned that when i’m painting i lick my lips about once every fifteen seconds. the next morning when i woke up the skin was peeling off. that’s the worst they’ve ever been, but i just chewed at them until they were smooth…

“Finally, from so little sleeping and so much reading, his brain dried up and he went completely out of his mind.”

—   Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra, Don Quixote (via larmoyante)

“There will never Queen sit in my seat with more zeal to my country, care to my subjects and that will sooner with willingness venture her life for your good and safety than myself. For it is my desire to live nor reign no longer than my life and reign shall be for your good. And though you have had, and may have, many princes more mighty and wise sitting in this seat, yet you never had nor shall have, any that will be more careful and loving.”

—   Queen Elizabeth I, spoken in her Golden Speech. (via longliveroyalty)

“This was over before it started.
The fault lines should have warned us,
but we stepped around them.
Do you understand Pangaea now?
How land masses that fit so perfectly
can float away until they are different continents
with different languages?
You probably don’t remember that this
almost worked out.
But it just had to happen this way.
Tell me,
do you believe in poetry yet?
Is it because you are tasting it in someone else’s mouth?
Don’t answer that.
I am sending this message in a bottle,
and I don’t want it to reach you.
It wouldn’t be fair
to let you think you can still choose.
This is just for me,
so I can know how horrible this
all sounds out loud.
For the record, it’s not good.
But the parts of me that held on to you
will erode away soon,
and I will stop reaching for them.
Some earthquakes will still remind me
of all that was lost,
but I am willing to shake if it means
getting you out of my blood.”

“'That’s the problem with drinking,' I thought, as I poured myself a drink. 'If something bad happens, you drink in an attempt to forget; if something good happens, you drink in order to celebrate; and if nothing happens, you drink to make something happen.'”

—   Charles Bukowski, Women (via larmoyante)

No! I am not Prince Hamlet, nor was meant to be;
Am an attendant lord, one that will do
To swell a progress, start a scene or two,
Advise the prince; no doubt, an easy tool,
Deferential, glad to be of use,
Politic, cautious, and meticulous;
Full of high sentence, but a bit obtuse;
At times, indeed, almost ridiculous-
Almost, at times,the Fool.

I grow old… I grow old…
I shall wear the bottoms of my trousers rolled.
Shall I part my hair behind? Do I dare to eat a peach?
I shall wear white flannel trousers, and walk upon the beach.
I have heard the mermaids singing, each to each.

I do not think that they will sing to me.

I have seen them riding seaward on the waves
Combing the white hair of the waves blown back
When the wind blows the water white and black.

We have lingered in the chambers of the sea
By sea-girls wreathed with seaweed red and brown
Till human voices wake us, and we drown.

—   The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock
-T.S. Eliot

“Maybe I was destined to forever fall in love with people I couldn’t have. Maybe there’s a whole assortment of impossible people waiting for me to find them. Waiting to make me feel the same impossibility over and over again.”
