Duke Ellington & John Coltrane - In A Sentimental Mood


"In A Sentimental Mood" by Duke Ellington & John Coltrane

«Even when I detach, I care. You can be separate from a thing and still care about it. If I wanted to detach completely, I would move my body away. I would stop the conversation midsentence. I would leave the bed. Instead, I hover over it for a second. I glance off in another direction. But I always glance back at you.»

-Levithan. David. The Lover’s Dictionary.  (via wordsnquotes)

«Sometimes I can hear my bones straining under the weight of all the lives I’m not living.»

-Jonathan Safran Foer, Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close. (via wordsnquotes)
Queen Latifah - Living Single


…in a 90’s kind a world, I’m glad I’ve got my girls.

«I despise my own hypersensitiveness, which requires so much reassurance. It is certainly abnormal to crave so much to be loved and understood.»

-Anaïs Nin  (via wordsnquotes)

«It may have been in bits and pieces, but I gave you the best of me.»

-Jim Morrison (via mentalpicturess)

«It was probably nothing but it felt like the world.»

«I mention her name and the old pain returns. Forget her, you say? How can you forget a living human being?»

-Sholem Aleichem (via wordsnquotes)

«When one is alone, imperfection must be endured every minute of the day; a couple, however, does not have to put up with it. Aren’t our eyes made to be torn out, and our hearts for the same purpose? At the same time it’s really not that bad; that’s an exaggeration and a lie, everything is exaggeration, the only truth is longing. But even the truth of longing is not so much its own truth; it’s really an expression for everything else, which is a lie. This sounds crazy and distorted, but it’s true. Moreover, perhaps it isn’t love when I say you are what I love the most—you are the knife I turn inside myself, this is love. This, my dear, is love.»

-Franz Kafka, from Letters To Milena (Schocken, 1990)

Amy Winehouse - Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow


Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow // Amy Winehouse

Reasons To Be Happy:

  1. Dead trees still stand and so can you.
  2. You have five fingers on each hand. One day those fingers will travel from your lap to someone else’s and that person will know all the bad stuff and still want to kiss you. 
  3. Seasons are guaranteed when nothing else seems to be.

To Bad Writing and Cold Beds

It’s clear and comfortable outside
but her glow keeps me inside.
I feel her kisses when she’s away
and although she’s miles away
I don’t mind if others enjoy her—
she has a tendency of finding her
way into my arms without hesitation.

Sometimes I swear I hear her cackle
flipping through books and basketball
staring at horrible foot work.
I can’t wait to get home to enjoy
the two cents she has saved for me
or how her patience is keeping
that horrible attitude she has contained.
I don’t mind it. I don’t mind.
From what is given and peacefully
accepted, I think the “new shade of pink” you could become and all
the colors you are are phenomenal.

With all the smiles and chuckles or
any words or touch— I give to you.
You deserve more than my poor charge
or my tattooed branches as warmth;
But I surely hope I complement
the happiness already there.
