Listeners, I do not know everything about Carlos, and he does not tell me everything. That is okay. We are not one person. How lonely that would be; a couple who has made themselves one so completely that they are once again alone. We are two people, separate, unique, and joined only where we choose to join. I don’t know what is his affiliation truly to the University of What It Is, perhaps I will never know. But I can know about the taste of food he has made me, or the feeling of his hand in mine, or the absence of his hand not in mine. I can feel the distance between us and I can know that that distance, viewed properly, is no distance at all.

Fate is like a strange unpopular restaurant filled with odd little waiters who bring you things you never asked for and don’t always like.

Anonymous said: do you have a favorite quote?
That’s not something I’ve thought much about. I like quotes but I’ve never had one that I’ve repeated over and over to myself. I come across sayings and they have their impact on me in that moment, maybe I’ll think about them for as long as I need to but I haven’t really had one that was “my mantra”.
That being said, this lyric from Into the Woods has stuck with me since I first heard it and it was the first thing to come to mind.
Witches can be right. Giants can be good. You decide what’s right. You decide what’s good.
You can check out my words tag for more quotes I came across and liked.

We live in an age where we feel guilt whenever we have to cut someone off, but the reality is that some relationships do need to die, some people do need to be unfollowed and defriended. We aren’t meant to be this tethered to the people in our past. The Internet mandates that we don’t burn bridges and keep everyone around like relics but those expectations are unrealistic and unhealthy. Simply put, we don’t need to know what everyone else is up to. We’re allowed to be choosy about who we surround ourselves with online and in real life, even if it might hurt people’s feelings.

I like it when it rains hard. It sounds like white noise everywhere, which is like silence but not empty.

Novels are fictions and therefore they tell lies, but through those lies every novelist attempts to tell the truth about the world.

one cannot conceive anything so strange that it has not already been said by one philosopher or another
A second year physics student at my university put together everything he’s learnt about learning and now exam seasons coming up I recommend flicking through (I personally found it v useful)
