To be honest, I haven’t felt awake since I got back from China. Even at work, everything and everyone is silent and a little surreal. No-one speaks there. I pass through the day. It offers no resistance. And when I come home, it is exactly the same. Empty and quiet. Too many rooms. And everyone else is miles away. Hm, interesting.
“You are afraid of it because it is stronger than you; you hate it because you are afraid of it; you love it because you cannot subdue it to your will. Only the unsubduable can be loved.”—We, Yevgeny Zamyatin (via fuckyeahliteraryquotes)
“This is why you should never, ever get your hopes up. This is why you should see the glass as half empty. So when the whole thing spills, you aren’t as devastated.”—Something Borrowed, Emily Giffin (via fuckyeahliteraryquotes)
