For unto every one that hath shall be given, and he shall have abundance: but...– Matthew 25:29 (English Revised Version)
Babe, now you’re a stone white flag that I never even see at all Caught out in a one way drag like a ride crashed in a wall I knew you’d take it back, but it seemed a good call Abby-Lee, your turn. She’s forty-five with those cold white eyes, she’s fifteen with that wispy hair Plays guitar like a radio star, plays your heart like debonair Trades knives with a glittering...
The infinite possibility of existence, its limitless potential, is the proof...– Daniel Kitson, The World is Too Big
For mentally ill people, there is a constant reminder that you are not good enough for relationships, you don’t deserve them, and thus you need to cling to what you’ve got. You should stay with an abusive partner because it’s better than nothing and you may not be able to find another relationship. And often, such relationships cultivate dependency, as well. People may be...

A question for people not on the autism spectrum:
Would you feel less comfortable going into a relatively familiar social situation if you were blindfolded? Or if the background noise was so loud that you could barely discern what anyone was saying? I have full faculty of my senses, but I’m trying to find a good analogy for why I get extremely tense about socialising on account of my greatly reduced ability to read tone and body language....
acronyms: The Bruce Effect First noted in 1959 by Hilda M. Bruce, the Bruce Effect is a phenomenon in which certain scents induce abortions in pregnant rodents. Such effect has been observed in deer-mice, meadow voles, and collared lemmings. If a female’s mate disappears after conception and an unfamiliar male starts loitering around, the new male’s smell will inhibit the production...
More and more these days I’m thinking that ‘true love’ is another myth created by elite society to subdue the masses. I believe that you can love more than one person in your life, either at the same time or in succession.

I love reading, but as one of the millions of people who aren’t privileged enough to be able to read ‘normally’, the elitist attitude that I often see towards books on Tumblr annoys the living crap out of me. To say that people who don’t read are inferior to you is incredibly ableist. To say that people who don’t read are somehow wasting their time is judgemental...
I want to create wilderness out of empire.– Gary Snyder
Ignorant Douchewad of the Week: Carol McGiffin.
Here’s what the minor British TV presenter has to say about the UK riots: From where I was standing on holiday in peaceful Croatia, the UK looked to me like a chaotic, anarchic, lawless third world country. […] Law and order has truly broken down. This is partly due to the awarding of too many rights to children, soft sentences being given because of prison overcrowding and the...
Patterns. Patterns beyond patterns. Me, the human mind, making patterns where no patterns exist. You, the other, the ethereal. You need no grids, no boxes, no lines. If I am geometric, then you are a dazzling shoot of plumes and radiance and colours all twisting and melding, lingering for a moment, then dissolving in the summer wind. I still trace your flight in my bones.
If you’re not part of the freaks, you’re part of the boredom.– Perry Farrell
