“Fashion is the air of the time, an indescribable energy, a visual way to interpret a period, and it’s impossible to predict where it all goes. … I cannot predict what we will be wearing in the future, if shoulder pads will come back or if my little wrap dress will continue to live, but I am sure that technology and fashion will live together in harmony. Technology will improve how we make fashion and how we distribute it. With Instagram, Facebook and Twitter we’ve become more creative, we’ve opened up and become transparent. It has become a scary world for the people who are fake. For everyone else, this opening up has given greater freedom. People can project what they want to project, and can reach so many other people. The true revolution has been in this opening up; it is in the distribution of things, more than in the things themselves.”—Diane von Furstenberg, “Fashion’s Latest Muse” (via thatluciegirl)
“They sat on a park bench, held hands, and told each other their stories hour after hour. They were not lonely anymore. They had found and been found by their 100% perfect other. What a wonderful thing it is to find and be found by your 100% perfect other. It’s a miracle, a cosmic miracle.”—― Haruki Murakami, 1Q84
"Mr. Lee, I want to write a letter to the president."

"I want to ask him why doctors make more money than teachers. I mean, teachers save lives too. Us students need teachers like you. I don’t even like my doctor. Plus, every doctor needed tons of teachers to be a doctor. Teachers only need one doctor."
“You must write every single day of your life. You must lurk in libraries to sniff books like perfumes and wear books like hats upon your crazy heads. May you be in love every day for the next 20,000 days. And out of that love, remake a world.”—Ray Bradbury (via thatluciegirl, quote-book)
“I’d rather be around a passionate nerd than a non-passionate cool person. Because if you lack passion, your soul is diminishing by the second. You have to be passionate about something. Call it obsessed or whatever you want, but be obsessed about something. Obsessed people care. I’m passionate about so many things, it becomes an issue at certain points, but at least you have the ability to feel that much about something”—Matt Cohen (via ablogwithaview)
“She reminded me of the sea; the way she came dancing towards you, wild and beautiful, and just when she was almost close enough to touch, she’d rush away again.”—Glenda Millard, A Small Free Kiss in the Dark (via creatingaquietmind)
