Loneliness adds beauty to life. It puts a special burn on sunsets and makes night air smell better.
― Henry Rollins (via b-illard)
When you are attracted to people, it’s because of the details. Their kindness. Their eyes. The fact that they can get you to laugh when you need it the most.
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 wordsnquotes)
