Meanwhile in my head, I'm undergoing open-heart surgery - Anne Sexton

4944"How do people, like, not curse? How is it possible? There are these gaps in speech where you just have to put a ‘fuck.’ I’ll tell you who the most admirable people in the world are: newscasters. If that was me, I’d be like, ‘And the motherfuckers flew the fucking plane right into the Twin Towers.’ How could you not, if you’re a human being? Maybe they’re not so admirable. Maybe they’re robot zombies." - Nick Hornby, A Long Way Down (via larmoyante)

Attic Room by Louis Icart, 1940
53"There’s never time for more than a rough sketch of what one wants to do, and what one feels. Yet after lunch today we had a sudden tremendous thunderstorm, the drops of rain were as big as marguerite daisies - the whole sky was violet. I went out the very moment it was over - the sky was all glittering with broken light - the sun a huge splash of silver. The drops were like silver fishes hanging from the trees. I drank the rain from the peach leaves and then pulled a shower-bath over my head. Every violet leaf was full. Time stood still. I thought of you - these are the things I want to share more than anything with you." - Katherine Mansfield, The Letters Of Katherine Mansfield
