soul-in-division:

no one needs false charity
we give devotion of thought
because we write
because we think
we cast out devils
what is the structure of Truth?
Is it in your cheekbones
the curve of your pelvis
or the bend of your wrist?
the fragility of bones that crack
under the weight of crimes against nature
you are unsure of your own
all we know is what we dislike in others
tear gas and pepper spray blocks our view
keeps us from seeing ourselves
and the northern lights
all of the things that light our way

Quote 31 May 1,369 notes
My meaning simply is, that whatever I have tried to do in life, I have tried with all my heart to do well; that whatever I have devoted myself to, I have devoted myself to completely; that in great aims and in small, I have always been thoroughly in earnest.
— Charles Dickens, David Copperfield (via bookmania)

Being an artist or a writer, you see the world differently. No matter the gender, the sexual orientation, skin color, religious back grouse or race you find beauty in each person you meet. You can see the light, the darkness contrasted in their soul. You see people as for what they really are. Human beings.

I give you virtually everything I have. I give you all the best things I have, and while these things are things that I like, memories that I treasure, good or bad, like the pictures of my family on my walls, I can show them to you without diminishing them. I can afford to give you everything.
— Dave Eggers, A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius (via bookmania)

One glance at a book and you hear the voice of another person, perhaps someone dead for 1,000 years. To read is to voyage through time.

Quote 31 May 93 notes
An extraterrestrial being, newly arrived on Earth - scrutinizing what we mainly present to our children in television, radio, movies, newspapers, magazines, the comics, and many books - might easily conclude that we are intent on teaching them murder, rape, cruelty, superstition, credulity, and consumerism. We keep at it, and through constant repetition many of them finally get it. What kind of society could we create if, instead, we drummed into them science and a sense of hope?
— Carl Sagan, The Demon Haunted World: Science as a Candle in the Dark (via strangeronbakerstreet)
