“I once wrote a song called My Love Is Dangerous. I feel that maybe that’s what my love is - dangerous. I haven’t actually analyzed myself, but after all these years I just feel I’m not a very good partner for anybody, and I think that’s what my love is. My love is dangerous. Who wants their love to be safe anyway? Can you imagine writing a song called ‘My Love is Safe’? It would never sell.”—Freddie Mercury (via fuckyeahmercury)
Go, and catch a falling star, Get with child a mandrake root, Tell me, where all past years are, Or who cleft the Devil’s foot, Teach me to hear mermaids singing, Or to keep off envy’s stinging, And find What wind Serves to advance an honest mind. - If thou be’est born to strange sights, 10 Things invisible to see, Ride ten thousand days and nights, Till age snow white hairs on thee, Thou, when thou return’st, wilt tell me All strange wonders that befell thee, And swear No where Lives a woman true, and fair. - If thou find’st one, let me know, Such pilgrimage were sweet. 20 Yet do not, I would not go, Though at next door we might meet, Though she were true, when you met her, And last, till you write your letter, Yet she Will be False, ere I come, to two, or three. (John Donne, 1633)
“Avoid the flourish. Do not be afraid to be weak. Do not be ashamed to be tired. You look good when you’re tired. You look like you could go on forever. Now come into my arms. You are the image of my beauty”—Leonard Cohen (via partypoison)
You pull back the curtains, and the sun burns into your eyes, You watch a plane flying across a clear blue sky. THIS IS THE DAY — Your life will surely change. THIS IS THE DAY — Your life will surely change.
