“Paradise, as people describe it, seems to me much too musical, and I confess in all humility that I am absolutely incapable of putting up with a sonata which might last for ten thousand years.”—Théophile Gautier, Mademoiselle de Maupin (via proustitute)
“You have wakened not out of sleep, but into a prior dream, and that dream lies within another, and so on, to infinity, which is the number of grains of sand. The path that you are to take is endless, and you will die before you have truly awakened.”—Jorge Luis Borges (via cementandaluminum)
Omg there is the prettiest chick I have ever seen here at Starbucks. Like completely shattering my concept of beauty; like I have never seen true beauty until today. Wow. Every other girl I have ever liked now looks like a man compared to her. Wow. I never knew beauty like this could exist. She is like the sun, or the moon, or the sea; she embodies a genuine beauty, a beauty comparable to the wonders of nature. Never would I have guessed that the meaning of existence, the meaning of life would be found working in a downtown Starbucks. Wow.
So come one, come all, young ones!
With wide eyes and dreamy smiles
Come tour the grand slaughterhouse!
‘Tis the ultimate salvation, I assure you!
You need only forfeit your soul to enter…
And as the superior dead white males take their sweet time
Carefully, surgically sodomizing you
As their values and standards
Are brutally shoved down your throat
And as you spill your guts
Thanking them for modernizing you
Her beautiful yellow face was God’s most vulgar flaw
And her love of life
His cruelest joke
“I was half in love with her by the time we sat down. That’s the thing about girls. Every time they do something pretty, even if they’re not much to look at, or even if they’re sort of stupid, you fall half in love with them, and then you never know where the hell you are. Girls. Jesus Christ.”—J.D. Salinger
Why bother talking about your problems?
No one cares
The best thing to do is to let them sit
Slowly gaining mass
Until they collapse in on themselves
Into a black hole
