“Siempre imaginé que el Paraíso sería algún tipo de biblioteca.” (I have always imagined that Paradise will be a kind of library.) --Jorge Luis Borges

this might seem shallow or immature but this quote hits me so hard, especially bc where I come from, students don’t have freedom to pursue what they like and end up doing what their parents want them to do


My favorite quote of all time is a rather long one from Alan Moore’s graphic novel Watchmen.

"But the world is so full of people, so crowded with these miracles that they become commonplace and we forget… I forget. We gaze continually at the world and it grows dull in our perceptions. Yet seen from the another’s vantage point, as if new, it may still take our breath away. Come…dry your eyes. For you are life, rarer than a quark and unpredictable beyond the dreams of Heisenberg; the clay in which the forces that shape all things leave their fingerprints most clearly. Dry your eyes… and let’s go home.”


this quote is honestly so beautiful, it makes me want to read the book


DO READ IT. It will make you think, it was make you smile, it will make you question yourself, it will make you tear up, and you will not regret it.


If it is anything like your books, I will definitely read it :blush:

“I miss my life as a kid. Because when you’re a kid, you only feel toothaches, not heartbreaks.”

“The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the inequities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men. Blessed is he who, in the name of charity and good will, shepherds the weak through the valley of the darkness. For he is truly his brother’s keeper and the finder of lost children. And I will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger those who attempt to poison and destroy my brothers. And you will know I am the Lord when I lay my vengeance upon you.” I been sayin’ that shit for years. And if you ever heard it, it meant your ass. I never really questioned what it meant. I thought it was just a cold-blooded thing to say to a motherfucker before you popped a cap in his ass. But I saw some shit this mornin’ made me think twice. Now I’m thinkin’: it could mean you’re the evil man. And I’m the righteous man. And Mr. .45 here, he’s the shepherd protecting my righteous ass in the valley of darkness. Or it could be you’re the righteous man and I’m the shepherd and it’s the world that’s evil and selfish. I’d like that. But that shit ain’t the truth. The truth is you’re the weak. And I’m the tyranny of evil men. But I’m tryin, Ringo. I’m tryin’ real hard to be the shepherd. --Jules, Pulp Fiction.
