This is my book blog as well as my personal blog because I found it hard to manage two blogs at the same time. My personal life seems to be tied up with books and reading.

Kate Rockland, Falling Is Like This


Kate Rockland, Falling Is Like This

Doubt thou the stars are fire;
Doubt that the sun doth move;
Doubt truth to be a liar;
But never doubt I love.
William Shakespeare “Hamlet” (via vasyamashina)

Day 17: Favorite quote(s) from your favorite book(s)

Watch out for intellect, because it knows so much it knows nothing and leaves you hanging upside down, mouthing knowledge as your heart falls out of your mouth.
Anne Sexton (via ungathering)

(via petrichorpress)

I thought the most beautiful thing in the world must be shadow, the million moving shapes and cul-de-sacs of shadow. There was shadow in bureau drawers and closets and suitcases, and shadow under houses and trees and stones, and shadow at the back of people’s eyes and smiles, and shadow, miles and miles and miles of it, on the night side of the earth.
Sylvia Plath, The Bell Jar (via bookmania)

(via petrichorpress)

Poetry and art are the breath of life to her.
Edith Wharton, from The Age of Innocence (via lotusohm)

(via booklover)

Painting is poetry that is seen rather than felt, and poetry is painting that is felt rather than seen.
Leonardo da Vinci (via excessivebookshelf)

The more you read, the better you will understand the art of writing.
Stacey O’Neale (via michellegraminski)

(via august1976)

Do not read, as children do, to amuse yourself, or like the ambitious, for the purpose of instruction. No, read in order to live.
Gustave Flaubert (via rlphjnmplq)

(via fuckyeahreading)

The quote is always fascinating because it changes out of context, becomes different and sometimes more mysterious. It has a directness and assertiveness it may not have had in the original. I think the quality of inaccessibility, the mystery, is important—that whatever matters can’t be taken in on just one reading or one seeing.
Susan Sontag, from a 1984 interview collected in Conversations with Susan Sontag (via proustitute)
