"And so with the sunshine and the great bursts of leaves growing on the trees, just as things grow in fast movies, I had that familiar conviction that life was beginning over again with the summer."
— F. Scott Fitzgerald - The Great Gatsby (via thatquote
"I started wishing on the stars in the sky instead.
I said to the sun, tell me about the Big Bang.
The sun said, ‘It hurts to become.’"
— Andrea Gibson, “I Sing the Body Electric, Especially When My Power’s Out” (via larmoyante
"Why must one talk? Often one shouldn’t talk, but live in silence. The more one talks, the less the words mean."
— Jean-Luc Godard, La Nouvelle Vague
“One day, you’re going to forget us. And then, the day after that, you’re going to forget me. Not even because of your amnesia. Just because of time. Because that’s what time does. It takes the little pieces. The insignificant ones first, and then it sneaks the significant ones. But then by the time you do realize it, they’ll be gone.”
- Jongin to Kyungsoo
"In Greek, “nostalgia” literally means, “the pain from an old wound”. It’s a twinge in your heart, far more powerful than memory alone. This device isn’t a spaceship. It’s a time machine. It goes backwards, forwards. It takes us to a place where we ache to go again. It’s not called the Wheel. It’s called a Carousel. It lets us travel the way a child travels. Around and around, and back home again… to a place where we know we are loved."
People believe those fairytales about falling in love at first sight at the bus, subway, or at the streets. But it doesn’t make sense how they’d laugh at the ones who fell in love at first sight through TV screens. Loving celebrity IS a type of love. Love is fair to everyone.
[누군가를 버스에서, 지하철에서, 거리에서 한순간 마주친 것만으로도 사랑하게 됐다는 꿈같은 이야기는 믿어주면서, 브라운관이나 스크린에서 한 번 본 것만으로도 사랑에 빠졌다는 얘기는 비웃다니 말이 안되죠. 연예인을 좋아하는 것도 사랑이에요. 사랑은 평등한겁니다.]
"Sometimes when I look at you, I feel like I’m gazing at a distant star. It’s dazzling, but the light is from tens of thousands of years ago. Maybe the star doesn’t even exist any more. Yet sometimes, that light seems more real to me than anything."
"Silence, I discover, is something you can actually hear."
"She kept asking if the stories were true. I kept asking her if it mattered. We finally gave up. She was looking for a place to stand & I wanted a place to fly."
"She’s just a girl who loves everything too much, cares too much, who feels and thinks too much. Everything breaks her. Her heart is riddled with cracks. But cracks are where the light shines in. And that light is what warms her soul & renews her spirit time & time again."
"You’re not broken just because you’re hurting, you’re not a failure just because you’re finding things difficult”. She gently affirms this to others, secretly hoping her own self will hear her and agree."
"Sometimes the hardest part of the journey is believing you’re worthy of the trip."
