The art of art, the glory of expression and the sunshine of the light of letters is simplicity. Nothing is better than simplicity.
-Walt Whitman

A golden chain hangs suspended from heaven.


translation for consuoconsuiconsutum

Original: ”σειρήν χρυσείην ἐξ οὐράνοθεν κρεμάσαντες.”

You must learn her.

You must know the reason why she is silent. You must trace her weakest spots. You must write to her. You must remind her that you are there. You must know how long it takes for her to give up. You must be there to hold her when she is about to.

You must love her because many have tried and failed. And she wants to know that she is worthy to be loved, that she is worthy to be kept.

And, this is how you keep her.

This is How you Lose Her, Junot Diaz   (via tea-storm)
