this is my fave book quote ever

anonymous asked:

Can you recommend some commie reading that's got a light tone to it? Something fun to read?

hm. light tone. Well, there’s this blog post from ultra that always kills me.

There’s the global shade piece, Nice Shit for Everybody

There’s this communist analysis of the history of workout culture

Armed Joy (audio here/ youtube) and the Call (audio) both have some zingers

This chapter of the Invisible committee book To Our Friends (audio) is one of my fave things ever (idk how light it is, but it’s not heavy either, i don’t think

That book Night-Vision I’ve been quoting is a a punchy read

That’s all I can think of off the top of my head. 

(the british library flickr+discworld 2/?)

The Patrician flashed one of those sharp, fleeting smiles to say that something that wasn’t very funny had nevertheless amused him. ‘Veni, vici…Vetinari.’


Pippin pressed forward as they passed under the lamp beneath the gate-arch, and when he saw the pale face of Faramir he caught his breath. It was the face of one who has been assailed by a great fear or anguish, but has mastered it and now is quiet. Pippin gazing at him saw how closely he resembled his brother Boromir - whom Pippin had liked from the first, admiring the great man’s lordly but kindly manner.

Yet suddenly for Faramir his heart was strangely moved with a feeling that he had not known before. Here was one with an air of high nobility such as Aragorn at times revealed, less high perhaps, yet also less incalculable and remote: one of the Kings of Men born into a later time, but touched with the wisdom and sadness of the Elder Race. He knew now why Beregond spoke his name with love. He was a captain that men would follow, that he would follow, even under the shadow of the black wings.

You are the only man I will ever love. You are the only man I want to spend forever with. You were the first person to love me, and I found that, with your love, I didn’t need anything more. You filled every void in my life. My heart was complete with you.

Maple, harvest, spice ❤️

Maple - is there a hobby / skill that you’ve always wanted to try but never did?
Mhm… probably everything sporty or sewing! The first because well, I’m clumsy af. Me walking is already a miracle for trying anything more complicated than that lol And sewing… if anyone wants to buy me a sewing machine, they will become my new bffs ahaha

Harvest - what fictional character do you most identify with? Why? 
Ok, this is a tough one. I tend not to identify with fictional characters because sooner or later I find something that makes me go totally “Hell no!”. But a character that really spoke to me was Miss Acacia from “The Boy With The Cuckoo-Clock Heart” which is also my fave book ever mainly because of this quote that made my cry so hard I can’t even describe it. 

“I learn about the strange mechanics of her heart: a protective outer shell hides her mysterious lack of confidence, whereby low self-esteem is constantly vying with the sheer force of her determination. […] I haven’t yet found the broken gear inside her. The entry code to her heart changes every evening. Sometimes, the shell is as hard as a rock. I might try a thousand combinations in the form of caresses and comforting words, but I’m stuck at the door. What a treat when I do eventually crack the combination. To hear her tiny sigh of surrender, I gently blow and her outer shell flies off in a thousand pieces.”

Spice - have you ever encountered a house that you believed to be haunted? 
Nooope, and luckily cause I get scared with nothing lol

Thank you for asking dear 💕💕

My point is, there are a lot of people in the world. No one ever sees everything the same way you do; it just doesn’t happen. So when you find one person who gets a couple of things, especially if they’re important ones… you might as well hold on to them. You know?

chocolate: when was your first kiss?
I was sixteen.

french vanilla: how old are you?
Twenty-seven. Until the end of this month. :|

Sweden, Hawaii, and New York.

I just use CoverGirl and Maybelline. I hardly ever wear makeup anymore, honestly.

Keep reading

Because I’m crazy about you. Because your lips are the prettiest damn lips I’ve ever seen. Because you think you’re a burden to me when I just want to keep you close to me all the time. Because you are making me lose my mind. Because I don’t want to be your friend, Trisha. I want to be yours.

“Iz,“ Alec said tiredly. "It’s not like it’s one big bad thing. It’s a lot of little invisible things. When Magnus and I were traveling, and I’d call from the road, Dad never asked how he was. When I get up to talk in Clave meetings, no one listens, and I don’t know if that’s because I’m young or if it’s because of something else. I saw Mom talking to a friend about her grandchildren and the second I walked into the room they shut up. Irina Cartwright told me it was a pity no one would ever inherit my blue eyes now." 

He shrugged and looked toward Magnus, who took a hand off the wheel for a moment to place it on Alec’s. "It’s not like a stab wound you can protect me from. It’s a million little paper cuts every day.”

I actually haven’t read the books yet, but I’ve seen this quoted a few places and it’s a great moment. I get a feeling TV Malec won’t have this same issue, though.

Malec Appreciation Fortnight  Day 2 - Fave Malec quote

Depression is like a heaviness that you can’t ever escape. It crushes down on you, making even the smallest things like tying your shoes or chewing on toast seem like a twenty-mile hike uphill. Depression is a part of you; it’s in your bones and your blood.
