“When I like people immensely I never tell their names to any one. It is like surrendering a part of them. I have grown to love secrecy. It seems to be the one thing that can make modern life mysterious or marvelous to us. The commonest thing is delightful if one only hides it. When I leave town now I never tell my people where I am going. If I did, I would lose all my pleasure. It is a silly habit, I dare say, but somehow it seems to bring a great deal of romance into one’s life.”—Oscar Wilde, The Picture of Dorian Gray (via sittinglilies)
“But she did look back, and I love her for that, because it was so human. So she was turned to a pillar of salt. So it goes. People aren’t supposed to look back. I’m certainly not going to do it anymore.”—Kurt Vonnegut, Slaughter House Five (via theyshinebrightly)
“You’re allowed to believe in a god. You’re allowed to believe unicorns live in your shoes for all I care.
But the day you start telling me how to wear my shoes so I don’t upset the unicorns, I have a problem with you.
The day you start involving the unicorns in making decisions for this country, I have a BIG problem with you.”—Matt Shultz (via ulakulpa)
