so disarming, darling

"but I'll be with you behind the couch when they come, on a different day just like this one..."

My name is Alyssa. I believe in stories above all, good obsessions, and making creativity an adventure.

This blog is mostly made up of movies, quotes, music, books, a few celebs, and poems. However this is a personal blog and I'll post whatever the hell I want, thanks. :)

"You must write every single day of your life. You must read dreadful dumb books and glorious books, and let them wrestle in beautiful fights inside your head, vulgar one moment, brilliant the next. You must lurk in libraries and climb the stacks like ladders to sniff books like perfumes and wear books like hats upon your crazy heads. I wish you a wrestling match with your creative muse that will last a lifetime. I wish craziness and foolishness and madness upon you. May you live with hysteria, and out of it make fine stories – science fiction or otherwise. Which finally means, may you be in love every day for the next 20,000 days. And out of that love, remake a world." 

- Ray Bradbury (via lucy-vanpelt)

"…But people can’t, unhappily, invent their mooring posts, their lovers and their friends, anymore than they can invent their parents. Life gives these and also takes them away and the great difficulty is to say Yes to life." 

- James Baldwin (via superbumblebee)

"Like the way the sun is right now, with the long shadows, and that kind of bright, soft light you get when the sun isn’t quite setting? That’s the light that makes everything better, everything prettier, and today, everything just seemed to be in that light." 

- John Green, Looking for Alaska (via bookmania)
