"Be daring, be different, be anything that will assert integrity of purpose and imaginative vision against the play-it-safers…"

Cecil Beaton, photographer (via fashcapade)

"Reading was my escape and my comfort, my consolation, my stimulant of choice: reading for the pure pleasure of it, for the beautiful stillness that surrounds you when you hear an author’s words reverberating in your head."

Paul Auster (via thakate)

"I began to draw an invisible boundary between myself and other people. No matter who I was dealing with. I maintained a set distance, carefully monitoring the person’s attitude so that they wouldn’t get any closer. I didn’t easily swallow what other people told me. My only passions were books and music."

Haruki Murakami, Sputnik Sweetheart  (via loveyourchaos)
