It scares me how wrong you can be about a person.
I am slow-thinking and full of interior rules that act as brakes on my desires.– F. Scott Fitzgerald, The Great Gatsby. (via sheistheblinddoll)
If all my mistakes led me to you, maybe they aren’t mistakes, at all.– Daily Haiku on Love by Tyler Knott Gregson (via tylerknott)

(Any time I see the doctors at my college's health service clinic.)
Doctor: Are you sexually active?
Doctor: Is there any chance you could be pregnant?
Doctor: Are you taking birth control pills?
Doctor: Do you use condoms?
Doctor (beginning to look concerned): Is there a medical reason you can't become pregnant?
Me: Not that I'm aware of.
Doctor (looking even more concerned, now speaking in a condescending tone): Then how do you know there's no chance of pregnancy?
Me: Last I checked, my female partner would have a hard time pulling that off.
sunra: I will never be able to describe the states of dazzlement, the trances, the ecstasies produced in me by lovemaking. More than communion, more than any joy in writing, more than the infinite, lies in the unity achieved by passion. It is the only moment when I am at rest, that is the summit, the grace, the miracle. — Anaïs Nin, from Aphrodisiac
we looked at each other until it felt like everything would burst into flames– jonathan safran foer (via yunzi)
I broke something and realized I should break something once a week to remind me...– Andy Warhol (via iouanddash)
