“It’s no good trying to get rid of your own aloneness. You’ve got to stick to it all your life. Only at times, at times, the gap will be filled in. At times! But you have to wait for the times. Accept your own aloneness and stick to it, all your life. And then accept the times when the gap is filled in, when they come. But they’ve got to come. You can’t force them.” D.H. Lawrence (via chamberlain)

“Do you realize that all great literature — Moby-Dick, Huckleberry Finn, A Farewell to Arms, The Scarlet Letter, The Red Badge of Courage, The Iliad and The Odyssey, Crime and Punishment, the Bible, and ‘The Charge of the Light Brigade’ — are all about what a bummer it is to be a human being?” Kurt Vonnegut (b. 11 November 1922)
