Beautiful Little Octopus

“My thoughts are stars I can’t fathom into constellations.”

—   John Green, The Fault in Our Stars.

“As he read, I fell in love the way you fall asleep: slowly, and then all at once.”

—   John Green, The Fault in Our Stars.

I remember my mother telling me that, when she was a little girl in Catholic school, the nuns used to hit her left hand every time she wrote with it. Nowadays, if a teacher did that, she’d probably be arrested for child abuse. The optimist in me wants to believe sexuality will eventually become like handwriting: there’s no right way and wrong way to do it. We’re all just wired differently.

It’s also worth noting that, when you meet someone, you never bother to ask if he’s right- or left-handed.

After all: Does it really matter to anyone other than the person holding the pen?

—   Sing You Home, Jodi Picoult

“All life is binary. On and off. There is no middle setting. Alive or dead. In love or not in love. Kissing or not kissing. Speaking or not speaking. One choice leads to another with no forks in the road. There are a thousand tiny yes and no decisions that make up every movement, but they are all just that: yes and no.”

—   Lydia Netzer, Shine Shine Shine.

I have a sneaking suspicion that my dog is a Republican living in a family of Democrats, yet we all still love each other. Bipartisanship does exist.

Logged into tumblr after a long absence to find that my sister has internet stolen my dog. It is true though, Cadie does seem bummed post election….

Cadie sits real pretty for her, but actually loses interest pretty quickly.

“To him she seemed so beautiful, so seductive, so different from ordinary people, that he could not understand why no one was as disturbed as he by the clicking of her heels on the paving stones, why no one else’s heart was wild with the breeze stirred by the sighs of her veils, why everyone did not go mad with the movements of her braid, the flight of her hands, the gold of her laughter. He had not missed a single one of her gestures, not one of the indications of her character, but he did not dare approach her for fear of destroying the spell.”

—    Gabriel García Márquez- Love in the Time of Cholera

“So much of her time spent like this: dreaming up things to say and never quite saying them.”

Reverse graffiti.
Instead of using actual spray cans some artist are just cleaning dirt off of certain areas to make their masterpieces, and they are calling it reverse graffiti. Kind of brilliant.
