About: "Napušteni brodovi plivaju lijeno, rastočene olupine, kao ti i ja." —Azra

“‘You’re confused, because whomsoever or whatever you give yourself to is never enough for you – isn’t that true? Nobody can hold you for long: you are always looking beyond the object of your love, looking for something you will never find. You will have to look inside yourself if you ever hope to free yourself of torment. You make friends easily, I’m sure. And yet there is no one whom you can really call your friend. You are alone. You will always be alone. You want too much, more than life can offer…’” —Henry Miller

"A wild longing for strong emotions and sensations seethes in me, a rage against this toneless, flat, normal and sterile life." —Anaïs Nin

“Three films a day, three books a week and records of great music would be enough to make me happy to the day I die.” —François Truffaut

“'Before that I'd always been pretty sure that things would turn out all right for me, but afterwards I didn't believe in myself anymore. I only wanted to go away and hide. Perhaps I was getting tired; perhaps I'd have smashed up anyway.'” —Jean Rhys, After Leaving Mr Mckenzie (via redofthehood)

“Not to think. Only to watch the branches of that tree and the pattern they make standing out against a cold sky. Above all, not to think.” —Jean Rhys, Good Morning, Midnight (via redofthehood)
“What happened was that as soon as I had the slightest chance of a place to hide in, I crept into it and hid.
Well, sometimes it’s a fine day isn’t it? Sometimes the skies are blue. Sometimes the air is light, easy to breathe.
And there is always tomorrow…”
—Jean Rhys, Good Morning Midnight (via cardboardmegan)
“But I stopped going out; I stopped wanting to go out. This happens very easily. It’s as if you had always done that — lived in a few rooms and gone from one to the other. The light is a different colour every hour and the shadows fall differently and make different patterns. You feel peaceful, but when you try to think it’s as if you’re face to face with a high, dark wall. Really all you want is night, and to lie in the dark and pull the sheet over your head and sleep, and before you know where you are it is night — that’s one good thing. You pull the sheet over your head and think, ‘He got sick of me,’ and ‘Never, not ever, never.’ And then you go to sleep. You sleep very quickly when you are like that and you don’t dream either.” —Jean Rhys, Voyage in the Dark (via nineteencigarettes)
