Jack Kerouac (via hellanne)
Some people are uncomfortable with silences. Not me. I’ve never cared much for call and response. Sometimes I will think of something to say and then I ask myself: is it worth it? And it just isn’t.
No One Belongs Here More Than You, Miranda July (via seabois)
I think part of the college application process should be to write a sentence in which someone is something (ex: You’re a piece of shit.). And if they don’t know the difference between “your” and “you’re” they don’t get accepted.
Writing is a lonely job. Having someone who believes in you makes a lot of difference. They don’t have to make speeches. Just believing is usually enough.
Stephen King, On Writing (via thatkindofwoman)
My days in the wilderness will live with me always. Everything there was so alive and familiar. Whoever gains the blessings of one mountain day is rich forever.
