1. I believe that there is a longing in my soul that searches the whole world.

    — Søren Kierkegaard, Either/Or (via wordsnquotes)

  2. The sun inside of him
    rages like wildfire
    and he is
    gold
    gold
    gold
    and he is
    scorching the skin of my heart,
    yet still he pretends
    that he is safe for me to love,
    that his hands are gentle,
    that his fingerprints won’t be
    seared into the notches of my spine.

    The sun inside of him
    could set the kingdom ablaze;
    he knows this, he does.

    And he still asks me to love him,
    to face the flame.

    Find me in the ashes.

    — Emily Palermo, Apollo  (via morozovaaleksander)

  5. Anonymous said: Thank you for also mentioning David/Genya. I had a strong issue with their relationship and how her confidence and beauty was somehow made to be an unattractive or unworthy of notice trait. To me the Darkling and Nikolai were the two who wanted Alina to be as strong as she could be. And in the end, they both got the shaft. :/ The ending of R&R makes me want to vomit. It's insulting.

  8. A British company has produced a “strange, alien” material so black that it absorbs all but 0.035 per cent of visual light, setting a new world record. To stare at the “super black” coating made of carbon nanotubes – each 10,000 times thinner than a human hair – is an odd experience. It is so dark that the human eye cannot understand what it is seeing. Shapes and contours are lost, leaving nothing but an apparent abyss.

  9. All the hardest, coldest people you meet,
    were once as soft as water.
    And that’s the tragedy of living.
