"She had worried that she would break if her heart broke, but she wasn’t broken. She had lost everything, but she was not lost. It seemed a worthwhile thing to know."

— Sarah Rees Brennan, Untold (via timetravelbypen)

I love it when the quotes that are important to me are important to others. ;)

"Deep in the human unconscious is a pervasive need for a logical universe that makes sense. But the real universe is always one step beyond logic."
  • from The Sayings of Muad’Dib by the Princess Irulan

  • SOUL: O Who shall, from this Dungeon, raise
  • A Soul inslav'd so many wayes?
  • With bolts of Bones, that fetter'd stands
  • In Feet and manacled in Hands.
  • Here blinded with an Eye and there
  • Deaf with the drumming of an Ear.
  • A Soul hung up, as 'twere, in Chains
  • Of Nerves, and Arteries, and Veins.
  • Tortur'd, besides each other part,
  • In a vain Head, and double Heart.
  • BODY: O who shall me deliver whole,
  • From bonds of this Tyrannic Soul?
  • Which, stretcht upright, impales me so,
  • That mine own Precipice I go
  • And warms and moves this needless Frame
  • (A Fever could but do the same.)
  • And, wanting where its spight to try,
  • Has made me live to let me dye.
  • A Body that could never rest,
  • Since this ill Spirit it possest.
  • SOUL: What Magic could me thus confine
  • Within anothers Grief to pine?
  • Where whatsoever it complain,
  • I feel, that cannot feel, the pain.
  • And all my Care its self employes,
  • That to preserve, which me destroys
  • Constrain'd not only to indure
  • Diseases, but, whats worse, the Cure
  • And ready oft the Port to gain,
  • Am Shipwrackt into Health again.
  • BODY: But Physick yet could never reach
  • The Maladies Thou me dost teach
  • Whom first the Cramp of Hope does Tear
  • And then the Palsie Shakes of Fear.
  • The Pestilence of Love does heat
  • Or Hatred's hidden Ulcer eat.
  • Joy's chearful Madness does perplex
  • Or Sorrow's other Madness vex.
  • Which Knowledge forces me to know
  • And Memory will not foregoe.
  • What but a Soul could have the wit
  • To build me up for Sin so fit?
  • So Architects do square and hew,
  • Green Trees that in the Forest grew.



in another lifetime, maybe.

"Being a linguist is more like a strange handicap: Where you normals just see unintelligible foreign gibberish, we linguists hallucinate. We see fascinating parallels, hints of patterns, analytical conundrums."

Geoffrey Pullum, “Linguistics qua affliction” (via na-vidya-na-avidya)

this is a gross analogy.
