A batch of wonderful book dedications.

"Find what you love and let it kill you."

- Charles Bukowski (via kushandwizdom)

"The universe is one being. Everything and everyone is interconnected through an invisible web of stories. Whether we are aware of it or not, we are all in a silent conversation. Do no harm. Practise compassion. And do not gossip behind anyone’s back - not even seemingly innocent remark! The words that come out of our mouth do not vanish but are perpetually stored in infinite space, and they will come back to us in due time. One man’s pain will hurt us all. One man’s joy will make everyone smile."

- Elif Shafak, The Forty Rules of Love (via solipsistictendencies)

"If we are the same person before and after we love, that means we haven’t loved enough."

- Elif Shafak, The Forty Rules of Love (via larmoyante)

"Isn’t it odd how much fatter a book gets when you’ve read it several times?” Mo had said…”As if something were left between the pages every time you read it. Feelings, thoughts, sounds, smells…and then, when you look at the book again many years later, you find yourself there, too, a slightly younger self, slightly different, as if the book had preserved you like a pressed flower…both strange and familiar."

- Cornelia Funke, Inkspell (via observando)

"The difference between an ordinary life and an extraordinary life is only a matter of perspective. Pull the blinds. Look around you. It is a mad, mad world and you do not require ten digit bank accounts to immerse yourself in it. Travel down dusty roads without a destination in mind. Climb a mountain and scream out into the void. Kiss the hell out of a stranger. Skinny dip in a lake. Get lost and lose yourself (they are two separate things). Explore the wilderness (especially the one within). Think less of destiny and more of the moment right here. Because when you are old and ill with your loved ones around you, fame won’t matter, nor will the extent of your wealth. You are the sum of the stories you can tell."

- Beau Taplin, “An extraordinary life.” (via crfandy5)

"'Sleep on it.' they say. As if a good night's rest does anything other than put your problems on pause."

- Beau Taplin || "Sleep on it." (via foxqueennn)


Don’t tell me this sucks for you too.

A killer cannot sue
for the bruises on his knuckles
or the blood on his shoes.


- Beau Taplin (via letsbreakthemoldsomehow)
