Silent Moon by MademoiseL
Amazing pencil work by my friend Monna Lisa Forni. I asked her to draw something inspired by The Smells, my series of poems. :) 
“It happened that a fire broke out backstage at a theater. The clown came out to inform the public. They thought it was just a jest and applauded. He repeated his warning, they shouted even louder. So I think the world will come to an end amid general applause from all the wits, who believe that it is a joke.”
— Søren Kierkegaard, Either/Or (via sunrec)

“I am a product of long corridors, empty sunlit rooms, upstairs indoor silences, attics explored in solitude, distant noises of gurgling cisterns and pipes, and the noise of wind under the tiles. Also, of endless books.”
— C. S. Lewis  (via loveage-moondream)

“You will hear thunder
and remember me,
And think: She wanted storms.
The rim
of the sky will be
the colour of hard crimson.
And your heart,
as it was then,
will be on fire.”
Anna Akhmatova (via burningbox)

“I demand unconditional love and complete freedom. That is why I am terrible.”

“Nothing ever goes away until it has taught us what we need to know.”

“I want to have my throat slashed while violating the girl to whom I will have been able to say: you are the night.”
— Georges Bataille (via rabbitinthemoon)

“To rise each day to fight a battle you know you cannot win, and to do this with wit, grace, compassion for others, and even a sense of mission, is to face the Absurd in a spirit of true heroism.”
“Where the light is brightest, the shadows are deepest.”
— Goethe (via hotcupofchai)

“She wasn’t doing a thing that I could see, except standing there, leaning on the balcony railing, holding the universe together.”
— J.D. Salinger, A Girl I Knew  (via loveyourchaos)

“We do this because the world we live in is a house on fire and the people we love are burning.”
— Sandra Cisneros, on writing (via coffeetotheorems)

“I used to think I was the strangest person in the world but then I thought there are so many people in the world, there must be someone just like me who feels bizarre and flawed in the same ways I do. I would imagine her, and imagine that she must be out there thinking of me too. Well, I hope that if you are out there and read this and know that, yes, it’s true I’m here, and I’m just as strange as you.”
“Compassion hurts. When you feel connected to everything, you also feel responsible for everything. And you cannot turn away. Your destiny is bound with the destinies of others. You must either learn to carry the Universe or be crushed by it. You must grow strong enough to love the world, yet empty enough to sit down at the same table with its worst horrors.”
