Death was defiance. Death was an attempt to communicate, people feeling the impossibility of reaching the centre which, mystically, evaded them; closeness drew apart; rapture faded; one was alone. There was an embrace in death.
Mrs Dalloway, Virginia Woolf (via literary-quotes)
He was my north, my south, me east and west…My working week and my Sunday rest…W.H Augen

I tell so many lies I have to write them down and keep them in the lie box so I can keep them straight.

My first tattoo. Quote from Alfred Lord Tennyson, my flatmate gave it to me in a valentine’s card, because she knew how much it meant to me. finally got it tattooed :)

Here’s another “So it goes” tattoo, from the uncomparable Slaughterhouse-Five. It’s my first text-only piece, not including my “!@#%&*” tattoo.
RIP kurt Vonnegut.

Queer little breaks of consciousness seemed to rise and burst like bubbles out of the depths of his stillness.

Ash nazg durbatulûk, ash nazg gimbatul,Ash nazg thrakatulûk agh burzum-ishi krimpatul.
One ring to rule them all, one ring to find them,One ring to bring them all and in the darkness bind them.
J. R. R. Tolkien - The Fellowship of the Ring

Ash nazg durbatulûk, ash nazg gimbatul,
Ash nazg thrakatulûk agh burzum-ishi krimpatul.

One ring to rule them all, one ring to find them,
One ring to bring them all and in the darkness bind them.

The search is what anyone would undertake if he were not sunk in the everydayness of his own life. To become aware of the possibility of the search is to be onto something. Not to be onto something is to be in despair.

This is my tattoo on my right forearm done by Mike at Tip Top Tattoos in Fort Wayne, Indiana. It is a quote from my favorite book, Daughter of Smoke & Bone by Laini Taylor, and is something I always try to remember. It’s healing, so it’s a little scabby and is peeling, but it is a beautiful tattoo (it just looks a  bit gross right now).
“Yearning for love made her feel like a cat that was always twining around ankles, meowing Pet me, pet me, look at me, love me. Better to be the cat gazing coolly down from a high wall, its expression inscrutable. The cat that shunned petting, that needed no one. Why couldn’t she be that cat? Be that cat!!! she wrote…”
It appears elsewhere in the book as well, but you get the idea!

A quote by Ronald Dahl, from the Minipins. A message to myself as much as a statement to the world.

“With how many things are we on the brink of becoming acquainted, if
cowardice or carelessness did not restrain our inquiries.”
