also that quote


“While I was auditioning during those years and I kept getting rejected, I never gave up till the end and even though I came this far, it was very tough, but I never gave up for my dream…” -Park Bom

naley appreciation week: day 5 ⇒ favourite quotes
There’s only a couple of things that I’m certain of in life and one of them is that  matter what happens, you’re gonna be the one wheeling me around when I’m 80.

Hozier is Edgar Allan Poe

I know it sounds a little crazy on the surface, but really think about it for a minute and you’ll see how exactly 100% correct I am.

First, consider the following themes and motifs: magic, nature, grief, sin, love, death, death, death, the subversion of everything you thought you knew. Consider the tenuous thread connecting love and joy. Consider the stronger thread connecting love and sadness. 

Consider how both Hozier and Poe understand your innermost feelings in exactly the right way. Consider being twelve years old and reading “Annabel Lee” and crying, and being nineteen years old and listening to “Work Song” and crying, and feeling a strange familiarity. 

Consider also the following quotes (italicized is Hozier, bolded is Poe, not that it matters, because they’re the same): 

  • the way she shows me I’m hers and she is mine 
  • all I loved, I loved alone
  • honey don’t feed it; it will come back
  • deep into that darkness peering, long I stood there, wondering, fearing, doubting, dreaming dream no mortal ever dared to dream before
  • offer me that deathless death; good God, let me give you my life
  • sleep, those little slices of death
  • only blue or black days
  • years of love have been forgot in the hatred of a minute
  • there’s something wretched about this, something so precious about this; oh, what a sin
  • invisible things are the only realities
  • I had a thought, dear, however scary, about that night, the bugs and the dirt / why were you digging, what did you bury, before those hands pulled me from the earth?
  • deep in earth my love is lying, and I must weep alone
  • when my time comes around, lay me gently in the cold dark earth / no grave can hold my body down, I’ll crawl home to her
  • neither the angels in heaven above nor the demons down under the sea can ever dissever my soul from the soul of the beautiful Annabel Lee
  • the blood is rare and sweet as cherry wine
  • this is a world of sweets and sours

I could go on, but I think I’ve made my case. Hozier is Edgar Allan Poe - reincarnated? Immortal with some cosmetic alterations? Possessed by his ghost? We may never know. All we know for certain is that Poezier’s dark influence is too powerful and I hope there’s not more than two of him.

She had a low forehead, a dull grey eye, a vast pendulous nose, a huge mouth full of uneven teeth and a chin and jawbone qui n'en finissent pas… Now in this vast ugliness resides a most powerful beauty which, in a very few minutes, steals forth and charms the mind, so that you end, as I ended, in falling in love with her. Yes, behold me in love with this great horse-faced bluestocking.
—  Henry James, writing about George Eliot in a letter to his father.

also the quote from the author about the book’s reception saying ‘I aimed for America’s heart but accidentally hit it in the stomach’ disgusts and has always disgusted me

there are some grotesque scenes about food safety yeah but 90% of the book is just nonstop visceral human suffering and I can’t comprehend anyone reading that and just going ‘ew! rats in my sausages!’ which makes up like 10% of the content

anonymous asked:

"Hate to see him go but love to see him leave" is also a quote from a rap song featuring drake and nicki. That was actually my first thought when I saw the quote tbh.

yeah i’m guessing they probs got it from the film 

There’s a Japanese phrase that I like: koi no yokan. It doesn’t mean love at first sight. It’s closer to love at second sight. It’s the feeling when you meet someone that you’re going to fall in love with them. Maybe you don’t love them right away, but it’s inevitable that you will.
—  Nicola Yoon, The Sun is Also a Star

“I’m just one gigantic ball of rancid fear and self-consciousness. I’m entirely fueled by fear, so the fact that I knew it could be a catastrophic disaster made me unable to sleep, and made me work quite hard.” — Eddie Redmayne, b. January 6, 1982

ARIES, you are orange and gold encased in maroon skin, sweet as honey. hang loose and know that your best is it’s own reward.

TAURUS, you still make me lose my breath with the curve of your neck, and i’m counting vertebrae to fall asleep, your laugh an indulgence I control my intake of. you are the best screenplay i could never write.

GEMINI,  the skyline is trying to kiss the moon, but you’re lucky that you bring her home.  be gentle with the kind of starlight you find.

CANCER, you were the first chord of a piano I learned to understand and my favorite poem, my most repeated prayer. we’ve made it this far. tell me that means something, and i’ll believe you.

LEO, to know you is to breathe in the first feeling of tomorrow. you are ceaseless and a shooting star - my night time dream wish. i miss you written a hundred times in blue.

VIRGO,  i’m often left asking if this is even worth it, and i think you’re the same. i want to be there for you. it used to be easier, you used to be a reminder of love and now i swallow your silence like a prison sentence. please don’t forget who you are.

LIBRA,  we are interlocked hands and ankles swinging in sync; knowing you is a second chance, and i’ll learn for you.

SCORPIO,  it’s natural to be terrified of what comes next. call me a lover but i don’t think anything is quite as important as the diamonds in your teeth when you smile. you are my undercurrent of inspiration.

SAGITTARIUS,  you are in your moment of nebulae, make it spectacular. rebirth tastes like last year’s champagne and  snow. 

CAPRICORN,  the smooth engine of a car, and a highway of mistakes and constellations. the chase is yours if you want it.

AQUARIUS, your palms say that it’s too late for you but when I close my eyes and swallow the middle name of the girl you once were it’s not sacrifice, but a promise. i will never forgive you if you press pause.  an artist is a guttural cry, and you can’t stop.

PISCES,  i carry your happiness in a pendant, knowing that some times things do work out, and it can be good. you are the best friend i didn’t know i could have.


my fave parts in beauty and the beast:

  • gaston dragging agathe in front of the whole town and then just going like ‘no offense agathe’
  • when lefou asked gaston whether he seriously wanted to be part of belle’s family
  • “is that fair?” - “i don’t care”
  • when gaston told belle that she just had to find the right man and she was all like ‘it’s a small village i’ve met everyone’ like what kind of savage
  • “BE FREE!” iconic
  • lefou spelling gaston’s name
  • beast dragging belle for her taste in shakespeare
  • belle holding back tears when she’s in the library for the first time honestly same
  • lefou’s smile upon realizing that maurice was still alive
  • “there’s a beast running wild, there’s no question, but i fear the wrong monster’s released”
  • maestro cadenza going “ouch” when gaston ditches lefou
  • when chip apologized to maurice for moving and maurice was just like ‘it’s alright’ and then he fucking bolted
  • luke evans singing
  • “too much?” - “…yep”
  • belle teaching that little girl how to read
  • “i didn’t think she would say yes!”
  • when everyone was changed back

“The first episode that I was on, we go and have a beer together, and it’s extraordinary writing-wise to look at the dialogue from that scene. It maps out the next four years of our relationship. We brought these things out in each other that only happens when you meet the person that you want to end up with. The writers let it unfold in a real and lovely way.” —Adam Scott
