Every day I discover more and more beautiful things. It’s enough to drive one mad. I have such a desire to do everything, my head is bursting with it.Claude Monet (via lunch-poems)
And when at last you find someone to whom you feel you can pour out your soul, you stop in shock at the words you utter— they are so rusty, so ugly, so meaningless and feeble from being kept in the small cramped dark inside you so long.Sylvia Plath (via fifteenths)
Poetry is not a turning loose of emotion, but an escape from emotion; it is not the expression of personality, but an escape from personality. But, of course, only those who have personality and emotions know what it means to want to escape from these things.T.S. Eliot (via lunch-poems)
These doubts are eating me alive
Have you ever wondered who will be your perfect travelling partner? Someone who will give you a sense of security walking through the most unfamiliar and the darkest of alleys. Someone with a sense of spontaneity who’d throw the map away and say “let’s just walk and see where it leads us to”. Someone who’d gasp at the sights you gasp at and feel the way you feel, who would know what you’re thinking of with just a moment of eye contact. He’d walk you to the ends of the earth, just like how he’d walk you to the end of your life. Have you ever wondered? Because I always do.
