" Tudo acaba, leitor: é um velho truísmo, a que se pode acrescentar que nem tudo o que dura dura muito tempo. Esta segunda parte não acha crentes fáceis; ao contrário, a ideia de que um castelo de vento dura mais que o mesmo vento de que é feito, dificilmente se despregará da cabeça, e é bom que seja assim, para que se não perca o costume daquelas construções quase eternas."
Dom Casmurro, Machado de Assis.
"If you only write when inspired, you may be a fairly decent poet, but you’ll never be a novelist." - Neil Gaiman (via observando)

[A collection of teacups and matching saucers with a shared peacock motif. The bird’s head, neck and body form the handle; the tailfeathers are painted on the sides of the cup and then fan out behind, peeling away from the cylinder of the cup petal-like. The handles of the spoons look like a single feather.]
"I want my secrets back. I want my heart back. I want all the words I ever wasted on you back. You sure as hell don’t deserve them." - Unknown (via stevenbong)
so i watched scott pilgrim vs the world again last night and the fact that im still picking up on things that i never saw before astounds me, like in this bus scene after the fight with matthew patel there’s a fucking bokeh filter on the front of the camera so when ramona is on screen all the out of focus bits are rendered as little “x”s and scott’s bits are little love hearts but when scott asks ramona if they’re dating now there’s a little ding from the bus as ramona’s turn to hearts like omg
the amount of attention to detail edgar wright puts into his films is absolutely baffling to me
