fuck yeah, literary quotes

Just changed my life. Check it out. I'm mad I didn't create this.

Some of my favorites so far (via pretty-little-time-bomb, via fuck yeah, literary quotes):

I’ve seen it before. There are women who spread ruin through no fault of theirs, just by being too beautiful, too full of life and love. They can’t help it. People come to them as people go to a warm fire in winter. O Pioneers!, Willa Cather
Blame it or praise it, there is no denying the wild horse in us. Jacob’s Room, Virginia Woolf
People that like to read are always a little fucked up. The Prince of Tides, Pat Conroy
If only there could be an invention that bottled up a memory, like scent. And it never faded, and it never got stale. And then, when one wanted it, the bottle could be uncorked, and it would be like having the moment all over again. Rebecca, Daphne du Maurier

I feel like I need to do so many things now. In no specific order, these things include re-reading Rebecca, starting a kick-ass tumblr site such as this, and writing a short story.

Oh, yeah. And pack. I need to pack.
