within a frame

If the world could remain within a frame like a painting on a wall, I think we'd see the beauty then and stand staring in awe.

“The best love is the kind that weakens the soul, that makes us reach for more. That plants a fire in our hearts and brings peace to our minds.”

– Audrey Niffenegger, The Time Traveler’s Wife (via quotes-shape-us)

“Here she is, all mine, trying her best to give me all she can. How could I ever hurt her? But I didn’t understand then. That I could hurt somebody so badly she would never recover. That a person can, just by living, damage another human being beyond repair.”

Haruki Murakami, South of the Border, West of the Sun  (via dirtyberd)

“We are unusual and tragic and alive.”

– Dave Eggers, A Heartbreaking Work Of Staggering Genius

I want to save everything and preserve all this but also want it all gone - can’t decide what’s more romantic, preservation or decay.  Wouldn’t it be something just to burn it all?  

- Dave Eggers, A Heartbreaking Work Of Staggering Genius

“I have no idea how people function without near-constant internal chaos. I’d lose my mind.”

–  Dave Eggers, A Heartbreaking Work Of Staggering Genius
