"Books may look like nothing more than words on a page, but they are actually an infinitely complex imaginotransference technology that translates odd, inky squiggles into pictures inside your head."--Jasper Fforde, The Well of Lost Plots (via larmoyante)

"Sinto mais do que demonstro. Sei mais do que aparento. Amo mais do que devia. Quero mais do que posso. Sou como um livro. Há quem me interprete pela capa. Quem não me entende. Quem leu e não gostou. Quem leu e se apaixonou."--Anônimo (via sonnetsofunreality)

"The pretty words mean nothing. They only mean the person you’re talking to is a human with an average vocabulary. It doesn’t mean they truly never will hurt you. It doesn’t mean they love you. It doesn’t mean you should get your hopes up for them. It means you should run away. Run as fast and as hard as you can in the opposite direction. Run until you can’t even see a shadow of their beautiful form. Just run, and run as long as you have to."--Unknown (via cite-belle)

"Você vai encher os vazios com as suas peraltagens e algumas pessoas vão te amar por seus despropósitos."--Manoel de Barros  (via l-voyageur)

"What I didn’t yet understand was the importance of taste and timing. Books are like people. Some look deceptively attractive from a distance, some deceptively unappealing; some are easy company, some demand hard work that isn’t guaranteed to pay off. Some become friends and say friends for life. Some change in our absence — or perhaps it is we who change in theirs — and we meet up again only to find that we don’t get along any more."--Mark Haddon, The Right Words in the Right Order (via distantheartbeats)

"Do not let your fire go out, spark by irreplaceable spark in the hopeless swaps of the not-quite, the not-yet, and the not-at-all. Do not let the hero in your soul perish in lonely frustration for the life you deserved and have never been able to reach. The world you desire can be won. It exists, it is real, it is possible. It’s yours."--Atlas Shrugged, Ayn Rand (via aigla)
