How wrong is it for a women to expect the man to build the world she wants, rather than to create it herself.
—Anais Nin (via psych-facts)
there are worse things
than being alone
but it often takes
decades to realize this
and most often when you do
it’s too late
and there’s nothing worse
than too late
—Charles Bukowski (via feellng)
Fight. You can shatter them or not, the essential thing is for you to fight. Life is a fight. A life without fight is a dead sea in the center of the universal organism.
—Machado de Assis, The Posthumous Memoirs of Bras Cubas (via talesofpassingtime)
Jean Paul-Sartre, The Flies
