Emma, 22. A perfectionist, a tiny bit materialist & plenty geeky.

April is the cruelest month, breeding
lilacs out of the dead land, mixing
memory and desire, stirring
dull roots with spring rain.
-- T.S. Eliot, The Waste Land

aseaofquotes:

Albert Camus, The Plague

Satan. That’s where I go for my evil. I get my bucket, and I go down to the well, I say, ‘Satan, are you down there? I gotta be evil today.’ So I lower the bucket into the well, and the lava comes back up, and I drink it. And it hurts, but then I take some Alka-Seltzer and some Pepto-Bismol. No, I don’t know. I really don’t know. It couldn’t be anything further from who I actually am, just a tall, lanky, goofy person. -- Michael Shannon, on where he gets the ability to be so evil onscreen (x)
Some old wounds never truly heal, and bleed again at the slightest word

George R.R. Martin

I knew it wasn’t too important, but it made me sad anyway. -- J.D. Salinger, The Catcher in the Rye
(via tremblingbambi)
Society has put up so many boundaries, so many limitations on what’s right and wrong that it’s almost impossible to get a pure thought out. It’s like a little kid, a little boy, looking at colors, and no one told him what colors are good, before somebody tells you you shouldn’t like pink because that’s for girls, or you’d instantly become a gay two-year-old. Why would anyone pick blue over pink? Pink is obviously a better color. Everyone’s born confident, and everything’s taken away from you. --

Kanye West

I like to see people reunited, I like to see people run to each other, I like the kissing and the crying, I like the impatience, the stories that the mouth can’t tell fast enough, the ears that aren’t big enough, the eyes that can’t take in all of the change, I like the hugging, the bringing together, the end of missing someone. -- Jonathan Safran Foer, Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close (via bookmania)
You don’t love someone for their looks, or their clothes, or for their fancy car, but because they sing a song only you can hear. -- Oscar Wilde  (via madamabutterfly)

“At first, I was somewhat hesitant to do the role. I mean, after all, Batman is an icon. But I remember, as clear as day, being at the grocery store the day the movie opened, and this little boy saw me. He couldn’t have been more than five years old. He just walked right up to me and hugged me. He hugged me, and I was so moved by it that I hugged him back. Then he looked up at me and said “You’re my hero.” And in that moment, I knew that not only as an actor that I had done my job, but that I had made the right decision to play Batman. And I’ve never looked back on my the decision to play Batman since.”

“He makes everyone funny. So selfishly I knew that if I was going to ever do a comedy, if I was going to lose my comedic virginity, I wanted to lose it to Steve.”

“I do have an affinity for damaged people, in life, in roles. I don’t know why. We’re all damaged in our own way. Nobody’s perfect. I think we are all somewhat screwy, every single one of us.” - Johnny Depp
