Squilibrata come Axl Rose

Fredda come la sua pioggia di Novembre

"He remembered the bitterness of his life at school, the humiliation which he had endured, the banter which had made him morbidly afraid of making himself ridiculous; and he remembered the loneliness he had felt since, faced with the world, the disillusion and the disappointment caused by the difference between what it promised and what it gave. But notwithstanding he was able to look at himself from the outside and smile with amusement.”
— W. Somerset Maugham, Of Human Bondage (via fables-of-the-reconstruction)
"Cupi? Chiedetevi come mai tutti i grandi filosofi lo sono. Chiedetevi: ‘Chi sono i sicuri, i contenti, gli eternamente gai?’ La risposta ve la darò io: soltanto coloro la cui visione è ottusa; la gente comune e i bambini!”
— Friedrich Nietzsche (via nietzscheinlife)
"Per dare vita a una stella danzante, occorre avere dentro di sé caos e confusione frenetica.”
— Friedrich Nietzsche (via nietzscheinlife)
"Ich glaube, man sollte überhaupt nur solche Bücher lesen, die einen beißen und stechen. Wenn das Buch, das wir lesen, uns nicht mit einem Faustschlag auf den Schädel weckt, wozu lesen wir dann das Buch? Damit es uns glücklich macht, wie Du schreibst? Mein Gott, glücklich wären wir eben auch, wenn wir keine Bücher hätten, und solche Bücher, die uns glücklich machen, könnten wir zur Not selber schreiben. Wir brauchen aber die Bücher, die auf uns wirken wie ein Unglück, das uns sehr schmerzt, wie der Tod eines, den wir lieber hatten als uns, wie wenn wir in Wälder verstoßen würden, von allen Menschen weg, wie ein Selbstmord, ein Buch muß die Axt sein für das gefrorene Meer in uns. Das glaube ich.”

Franz Kafka

translation:‘I think we ought to read only books that bite and sting us. If the book we are reading doesn’t shake us awake like a blow on the skull, why bother reading it in the first place? So that it can make us happy, as you put it? Good God, we’d be just as happy if we had no books at all; books that make us happy we could, at a pinch, also write ourselves. What we need are books that hit us like a most painful misfortune, like the death of someone we loved more than we love ourselves, that make us feel as though we had been banished to the woods, far from any human presence, like a suicide. A book must be the axe for the frozen sea within us. That is what I believe.’

Ogni tanto una gioia.

Ho appena portato a casa “I giorni dell’eternità” camminando per strada tenendolo stretto al petto come farei con un bambino, anzi meglio, perché nessun bambino sarà mai bello quanto un libro di Follett.

"I am jealous of those who think more deeply, who write better, who draw better, who look better, who live better, who love better than I.”
— Sylvia Plath (via wordsnquotes)

Non rinunciare mai, Catherine. Hai tante cose dentro di te e la più nobile di tutte, il senso della felicità.

Ma non aspettarti la vita da un uomo.
Per questo tante donne s’ingannano.
Aspettala da te stessa.

Albert Camus (via mariofiorerosso)
"…curious way that my idealism has been mixed with my fatalism, so that I can possess the soul of a dreamer and that of a cynic at the same time.”
— Anaïs Nin  (via thelostdeer)
"Inside of me lives a civil war between me and me. It is amazing, because I am all the time winning and all the time losing.”
— Bshayer F.R (via wnq-writers)
