There is a loneliness in this world so great that you can see it in the slow movement of the hands of a clock. People so tired, mutilated either by love or no love.
Charles Bukowski (via theperfectplacesofsleep)
It’s always surprising to me how many young women think they have to be perfect. I rarely meet a young man who doesn’t think he already is.
Hillary Clinton speaking at Simmons Leadership Conference (via boyhands)
Closing your eyes isn’t going to change anything. Nothing’s going to disappear just because you can’t see what’s going on. In fact, things will even be worse the next time you open your eyes. That’s the kind of world we live in. Keep your eyes wide open. Only a coward closes his eyes. Closing your eyes and plugging up your ears won’t make time stand still.
Kafka on the Shore (via nuuro)
