Only You Will Do

by meaghanmerrifield


“I have little left in myself — I must have you. The world may laugh — may call me absurd, selfish — but it does not signify. My very soul demands you: it will be satisfied, or it will take deadly vengeance on its frame.”

-Charlotte Bronte

Shall We Dance

by meaghanmerrifield


“And once the storm is over, you won’t remember how you made it through, how you managed to survive. You won’t even be sure, whether the storm is really over. But one thing is certain. When you come out of the storm, you won’t be the same person who walked in. That’s what this storm’s all about.”

 by Haruki Murakami

Dwell in Possibility

Thou shalt remain, in midst of other woe than ours,

a friend to man, to whom thou sayst,

and all ye need to know.”

A slice of Intellectualism

by fyarlgiles


“All photographs are memento mori. To take a photograph is to participate in another person’s (or thing’s) mortality, vulnerability, mutability. Precisely by slicing out this moment and freezing it, all photographs testify to time’s relentless melt.”

-Susan Sontag On Photography
