To feel anything deranges you. To be seen feeling anything strips you naked. - Anne Carson, from Red Doc (via synaesthes—ia)#
With her hair tossing wildly, she cupped one hand over her ear, gasping for breath as if she had come running from the end of the earth. “What’s the matter? Where on earth did you come from?” the doctor asked, astonished. “From the sea,” the girl answered. “Is that so? By bus?” “No. I came running.” “Oh,” said the doctor, pushing his glasses back on his nose. “Have a seat,” he added, pointing to the chair in front of him. The girl looked pale. With her eyes wide open, she looked as if she had swallowed poison. - Naoko Awa, The Bird#
What does reason demand of a man? A very easy thing—to live in accord with his nature. - Seneca (via moralanarchism)

Two guys one mouth - Erin Gwozdz (via afamiliarstrangeness)
