This is a blog about words: writing and reading; books, notebooks, stationery, quotes, writer's blocks, resources and stuff.

I'm not good at talking to people or talking about myself, but I'm always willing to make friends!

"I like to write when I feel spiteful. It is like having a good sneeze."
- D.H. Lawrence (via writingquotes)


F. Scott Fitzgerald, The Ice Palace

"Years of love have been forgot, In the hatred of a minute."
- Edgar Allan Poe (via quotes-shape-us)
"Knowing you have something good to read before bed is among the most pleasurable of sensations."
- (via booklikes)


— Jane Austen

"Stay hungry, stay young, stay foolish, stay curious, and above all, stay humble because just when you think you got all the answers, is the moment when some bitter twist of fate in the universe will remind you that you very much don’t."
- Tom Hiddleston (via observando)
"A mind needs books as a sword needs a whetstone, if it is to keep its edge."
- George R. R. Martin, A Game of Thrones (via bookmania)
"I do think that a bookshelf is a rather complete image of a person. When I enter someone’s home, I always look at their books first."
- Lovis Caputo (via openbookstore)
"The difference between good writing and bad writing is ‘did the author do what he set up to do?’ You can’t say ‘this is a novel about my first love and by the end you’re going to be heartbroken’ then none of that comes out of the book. And I’m not talking about a book that was structured that way on purpose, but a writer not doing his work! If a book gets published, an editor looked at it and plucked out specific paragraphs that didn’t fit in the novel…There are cracks in something other people deem perfect… If there’s a level of perfection to strive for, there’s also laziness and garbage material. You know the level of perfection you want to reach, and if that’s true then there must also be bad art."

"I often carry things to read so that I will not have to look at the people."
- Charles Bukowski  (via thatlitsite)
"At the end of the day, you can get more out of a book than a bottle."
- Charles Ray Hastings Jr.  (via thatlitsite)
"Not all those who wander are lost."
- J.R.R. Tolkien (via thatlitsite)
