Somewhere over the rainbow
Now is Good
Clown Emeli Sande
They say your heart can’t break when it’s not whole; what they fail to notice is that if you cut deeper than the scar tissue, the wound bleeds just as vigorously as it did before it was first inflicted.
What was lost was lost. There was no retrieving it, however you schemed, no returning to how things were, no going back.
Haruki Murakami, Hard-Boiled Wonderland and the End of the World (via 4mbivalent)
―Nancy Lemann, The Fiery Pantheon
There’s an opposite to déjà vu. They call it jamais vu. It’s when you meet the same people or visit places, again and again, but each time is the first. Everybody is always a stranger. Nothing is ever familiar.
―Chuck Palahniuk, Choke
For the crimson flower of our life is eaten by the cankerworm of truth, And no hand can gather up the fallen withered petals of the rose of youth.
excerpt from Flower of Love, Oscar Wilde
