“I do not want to be the leader. I refuse to be the leader. I want to live darkly and richly in my femaleness. I want a man lying over me, always over me. His will, his pleasure, his desire, his life, his work, his sexuality the touchstone, the command, my pivot. I don’t mind working, holding my ground intellectually, artistically; but as a woman, oh, God, as a woman I want to be dominated. I don’t mind being told to stand on my own feet, not to cling, be all that I am capable of doing, but I am going to be pursued, fucked, possessed by the will of a male at his time, his bidding.”—Anais Nin (via eroticwords)
Every time i hear this i want to fly through the air, down a hill, at break neck speed, i want to call for more, at the top of my lungs, my heart burns, my spirit sings and i want to live, no feel, every excited breath of my life.
Every time I hear this song I’m suddenly back in Rome. I can smell the dust and the the sun and my body remembers how it felt to be bathed in the kind of light that makes your skin sing. This is the song that allowed me to push through fear and have one of the most incredible experiences of my life. When I listen to this I’m transported back; I can hear the blood pounding in my ears, smell and feel the cool stone surrounding me. I see glimpses of the city stretched out below me, waiting. It’s still waiting, and I am counting down the days until I can return to it.
“I’ve learned that goodbyes will always hurt, pictures never replace having been there. Memories, good or bad, will bring tears, and words can never replace those feelings.”—Unknown (via kidlovesdoodles)
“If you learn from your suffering and really come to understand the lesson you were taught, you might be able to help someone else who’s now in the phase you may have just completed. Maybe that’s what it’s all about after all.”—Anonymous (via julie911) (via quote-book)
a quote worth repeating to others: “if you feel in control, you’re simply not going fast enough.”
a quote powerful enough to live by. a quote meaningful enough to spend time thinking about, pondering all the possible meanings of a quote so strong. the thing is, life is not a thing worth living, worth pariticipating in, if you’re leading one so unbearably repetitive, so predictably safe. if you’ve only got one life to live, it should be spent dancing, singing, laughing. we should make the most of everything fate throws in our direction. days should be spent appreciating the beauty of the world, and nights should be spent dreaming of the days to come. your life altogether, should be spent trying to make a difference in the world during the short time that has been allowed. if you’ve never felt the wind in your hair, felt the adrenaline of a night spent running, spent a night in the arms of someone you love, i suggest you go out there and start living it up.
