Meg Rosoff, What I Was

A lie gets halfway around the world before the truth has a chance to get its pants on.
Winston Churchill (via observando)


Jessi Kirby, Golden

Human life is thus only a perpetual illusion; men deceive and flatter each other. No one speaks of us in our presence as he does of us in our absence. Human society is founded on mutual deceit; few friendships would endure if each knew what his friend said of him in his absence, although he then spoke in sincerity and without passion. Man is then only disguise, falsehood, and hypocrisy, both in himself and in regard to others. He does not wish any one to tell him the truth; he avoids telling it to others, and all these dispositions, so removed from justice and reason, have a natural root in his heart
Blaise Pascal (via blackestdespondency)

(via blackestdespondency)

The heart has its reasons which reason knows not.
Blaise Pascal (via wordsaretimeless)


Philip Roth, American Pastoral

(via upperrcut)

I either eat too much or starve myself. Sleep for 14 hours or have insomniac nights. Fall in love very hard or hate passionately. I don’t know what grey is. I never did.
