“The simple fact is that when I lost my son, when Karac left us, I really changed. I mean, there’s nothing on the planet to equal that kind of grief…it still makes me shudder. No matter how good you are or how capable you are or how strong you are or how well-intentioned you are, you don’t get over anything like that." - Robert Plant

(via pricklylegs)

He had heard it made before by people of many different nationalities. The illusion that freedom is the prerogative of one’s own particular race is fairly widespread.
Dr. Gerard was wiser. He knew that no race, no country and no individual could be described as free.

The great enemy of clear language is insincerity. When there is a gap between one’s real and one’s declared aims, one turns, as it were, instinctively to long words and exhausted idioms, like a cuttlefish squirting out ink.

George Orwell, The Lion and the Unicorn (via victoriousvocabulary)

(via nudityandnerdery)


He read with nothing but appetite—without discrimination or judgment, sometimes without understanding.

Peter Straub’s Mystery

“The most unfair thing about life is the way it ends. I mean, life is tough. It takes up a lot of your time. What do you get at the end of it? A Death! What’s that, a bonus? I think the life cycle is all backwards. You should die first, get it out of the way. Then you live in an old age home. You get kicked out when you’re too young, you get a gold watch, you go to work. You work forty years until you’re young enough to enjoy your retirement. You do drugs, alcohol, you party, you get ready for high school. You go to grade school, you become a kid, you play, you have no responsibilities, you become a little baby, you go back into the womb, you spend your last nine months floating…

…and you finish off as an orgasm.”

- George Carlin (via sirias74)

Science does not purvey absolute truth, science is a mechanism. It’s a way of trying to improve your knowledge of nature, it’s a system for testing your thoughts against the universe and seeing whether they match.

Isaac Asimov (via expose-the-light)

(via bluedogeyes)

What’s the difference between a commercial rapper and a pile of shit? ‘The pile of shit does not peddle drug-induced lyrics to the people!’

Because I can lie beautiful true things into existence, & let people escape from inside their own heads & see through other eyes.

Everything on the tour went drastically wrong. But at least there was a tour for it to go wrong on. - Steve ‘Lips’ Kudlow

ANVIL! The Story of Anvil - Sacha Gervasi

This part made me cry like a bitch =’(


But I have died a thousand times
Watching all these angels fall
Their lonely eyes haunt me still
We will avenge them all
