"I thought how unpleasant it is to be locked out; and I thought how it is worse, perhaps, to be locked in." - Virginia Woolf
He did not belong to this world...There was nothing in it he wanted. Yet could he ever get out of it? Was there anything in himself that would carry him out of it?
- The Rainbow by D H Lawrence
"Being cynical is the only way to deal with modern civilization, you can’t just swallow it whole."
"There were so many of us who would have to live with things done and things left undone that day. Things that did not go right, things that seemed okay at the time because we could not see the future. If only we could see the endless string of consequences that result from our smallest actions. But we can’t know better until knowing better is useless."
- Looking for Alaska by John Green
We all have dreams in our heads, words in our mouths, stories on our skin and ghosts in our hearts. We’re little haunted houses. Dreaming, dreaming, dreaming.
