"She had studied the universe all her life, but had overlooked its clearest message : For small creatures such as we, the vastness is bearable only through love."
"My sweet rose, my delicate flower, my lily of lilies, it is perhaps in prison that I am going to test the power of love. I am going to see if I cannot make the bitter warders sweet by the intensity of the love I bear you. I have had moments when I thought it would be wise to separate. Ah! Moments of weakness and madness! Now I see that would have mutilated my life, ruined my art, broken the musical chords which make a perfect soul. Even covered with mud I shall praise you, from the deepest abysses I shall cry to you. In my solitude you will be with me."
Oscar Wilde - The Complete Letters of Oscar Wilde
"Thus passing out of my cell in all directions are fine threads connecting me with thousands of creatures great and small, whose doings react upon me to arouse disquiet, pain, and self-reproach. You yourself, too, belong to this company of birds and beasts to which my nature throbs responsive. I feel how you are suffering because the years are passing beyond recall without your being able really to “live”! Have patience, and take courage! We shall live none the less, shall live through great experiences. What we are now witnessing is the submergence of the old world, day by day another fragment sinks beneath the waters, day by day there is some fresh catastrophe. The strangest thing is that most people see nothing of it, but continue to imagine that the ground is firm beneath their feet."
Rosa Luxemburg, letter from prison, May 12, 1918
Protesters still have time to make “Game of Thrones” refs
"He found her most beautiful not when she was all fancied up, but when she wasn’t. When she was lying on the carpet, her hair all a mess, laughing about something that had happened years ago. When she wasn’t trying to impress anyone and taken down that wall that she had built for most people. That’s when he couldn’t take his eyes off of her."
"The moment you fall in love feels like it has centuries behind it, generations - all of them rearranging themselves so this precise, remarkable intersection could happen. In your heart, in your bones, no matter how silly you know it is, you feel that everything has been leading to this, all the secret arrows were pointing here, the universe and time itself crafted this long ago, and you are just now realizing it, you are just now arriving at the place you were always meant to be."
David Levithan, Every Day
"Üniversite yillarimda bir kizla tanışmıştım. Spor,kumar,politika çevrelerine giriyor, serüvenler arıyor, yosmalığı da elden bırakmıyordu. Her tarakta bezi vardı yani. Aslında deneyler geçiren bir öğrenciydi, ama o bunu bir türlü anlamıyordu. Böyle yapmakla, yaşantısını çeşitlendirdiğini sanıyordu ancak yaşamının birliği çeşitli anları onda birleştiriyordu.Bir aydın, işçilerin yanında bulunmakla işçi olmaz. İşçilerin yanında yer alan bir aydın olur yalnızca."
Simone de Beauvoir - Pyrrhus et Cineas
"The present book is a continuation from “Psychoanalysis and the Unconscious.” The generality of readers had better just leave it alone. The generality of critics likewise. I really don’t want to convince anybody. It is quite in opposition to my whole nature. I don’t intend my books for the generality of readers. I count it a mistake of our mistaken democracy, that every man who can read print is allowed to believe that he can read all that is printed. I count it a misfortune that serious books are exposed in the public market, like slaves exposed naked for sale. But there we are, since we live in an age of mistaken democracy, we must go through with it."
