Those who would give up essential liberty, to purchase a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety.

“I am an excitable person who only understands life lyrically, musically, in whom feelings are much stronger as reason. I am so thirsty for the marvelous that only the marvelous has power over me. Anything I can not transform into something marvelous, I let go. Reality doesn't impress me. I only believe in intoxication, in ecstasy, and when ordinary life shackles me, I escape, one way or another. No more walls.”

"You tell me that the old you is dead. I am also not who I used to be. The revolution is emotional. I found a reason to not fear death. I found more reasons to live, reasons to change what is living inside me and around me. The revolution is that I care about my own safety, that I believe my life is valuable and worth pursuing. As in, I am worth the work of transformations. As in, I do not fear how I will emerge from myself, or how many times." (Yanyi in The Year of Blue Water)

"Somebody should tell us, right at the start of our lives, that we are dying. Then we might live life to the limit, every minute of every day. Do it! I say. Whatever you want to do, do it now! There are only so many tomorrows."

Pope Paul VI

"Songwriting for me had always only been interesting and necessary because I saw it as this vehicle for truth, but I had this realization that all I had really done with it was lick my wounds for years and years, and become more and more isolated from people and experiences. I don’t even like wound-licking music, I want to listen to someone rip their arm off and beat themselves with it. I don’t believe that until now I’ve ever put anything at risk in my music. I was hell-bent on putting my preciousness at stake in order to find something worth singing about." (Josh Tillman aka Father John Misty)

'It is three at night. I have something to say. You are so valuable. You shine out. You are a magic star. You are a body of blood made beautiful. How I admire, sit back and adore you. How thirsty I am for that. How you feed me.' (Anne Sexton, from a letter to Lois Ames dated 11 January 1969, Anne Sexton: A Self-Portrait in Letters)

please let lois have been her secret lover.

'I’ve always been far more interested in femme in the shape
of ugly and dangerous,
monstrous and ordinary.
I want to be monsters with my femmes

Our monster is how we lived through this.
I want us to monster large together.
a perfect knife, broken and studded,
I love us, born broken blade,
our love languages we half know celebrating each other’s birth'

(leah lakshmi piepzna-samarasinha from “birth day”)

"Withdrawing in disgust is not the same thing as apathy" - Richard Linklater


I've been out haunting the neighborhood
And everybody can see I'm no good
When I'm walking out between parked cars
With my head full of stars

'[they] skim the flower-beds with their nets. They skim the butterflies from the nodding tops of the flowers. They brush the surface of the world.' (virginia woolf in the waves)

'I was pretending that I did not speak their language; on the moon we spoke a soft, liquid tongue, and sang in the starlight, looking down on the dead dried world.' (shirley jackson in we have always lived in the castle)

'You give me with your body all the joys of the flesh and with your mind all those of the soul.' (gustave flaubert, from a letter to louise colet written c. september 1846)

'I want you everywhere, by my side and between my thighs. I want your flowers in my hair and your name under my nails. I want you with me, your sugar in my tea, my eyelashes on your sheets. Write your name on me, when my heart breaks, I want it to be blinding.' (du, j.m.)



this isn't all but it's enough. i need to read.
