I’m attracted to intelligence. Not the book smart type of intelligence. I could care less whether you’ve gone to college or how much money you make because of it. I like intelligent conversations that make me think even hours after it’s ended. I soak up words from radical minds.

"I’m someone who’s mostly dead inside but still has a little hope for something extraordinary, which, as I said, is the worst breed of human, because it means I know everything is bullshit, but that I secretly hope for the day when it might not be."

"Tell me, is there a name more fitting for the way I could feel your presence even after you’ve left the room? Or the way minutes disguise themselves as hours when we part ways? Because trust me, I’ve tried. And although I’ve tried to love you modestly and cautiously, it was inevitable that I would be falling for you recklessly and hopelessly. So, whatever it may be have been, the truth remains – I have never loved the way I love you."

"Most of the time when something goes bad—a marriage, a war, a run of good luck—you don’t know it. It’s like in the cartoons, only less funny. You run off the cliff and just keep going—talking, listening to music, making plans, for years sometimes—except no announcer interrupts to say ‘Excuse me, collect call for Mr. Coyote’ to make you notice and make us laugh. You just wake up and fall."

"Go Forth in Cool"

- Mantra (via howitzerliterarysociety)

"Parents I implore you, start your kids on the cool path early. Buy them black clothes. Teach them about spices. Teach them how to strut. How to lean against a wall. How to listen to stories with a side grin. How to drop the tension in their shoulders. You owe it to them to raise them like a willow tree. Buy them some shades and give them primers in Camus. Let them get pissed off a bit while you’re chillin’, just waiting for them to calm down. Swear to god you’re doing them a favor."

Waiting Room

viperslang:

The love you didn’t expect is always more pure.
It is a gift of compassion where time,
more austere and uncertain, more absolute,
seems to stop on the dime of your silences.
Knowing that you are there makes me be
and grow indifferent to its power,
dig in my heels before the scythe that cuts the threads,
so thin, of our black sails.

- Francesc Parcerisas, Translation of “Sala d’espera.” 

First published in Natura morta amb nens (Barcelona: Quaderns crema, 2000).

"Beyond myself, somewhere, I wait for my arrival."

- Octavio Paz (via tierradentro)

(via howitzerliterarysociety)

"

I remember
how seeing the shape of your mouth
that first time, I kept staring
until my blood turned to rain.

Some things take root
in the brain and just don’t
let go.

"
