“I think she was afraid to love sometimes. I think it scared her. She was the type to like things that were concrete, like the ocean. Something you could point to and know what it is. I think that’s why she always struggled with God. And I think that’s why she also struggled with love. She couldn’t touch it. She couldn’t hold on to it and make sure it never changed. But sometimes it’s those things you can’t touch that you need to hold on to the most.”—Carrie Ryan (via aeloquence)
“Psychedelics are not illegal because a loving government is concerned that you may jump out the first story window, psychedelics are illegal because they dissolve phonic structures and culturally laid down novels of behavior and information processing, they open you up to the possibility that everything you know is wrong.”—Terence McKenna (via thehappysmokers)
“You spend your whole life stuck in the labyrinth, thinking how you’ll escape one day, and how awesome it will be, and imagining that future keeps you going, but you never do it. You just use the future to escape the present.”—Looking For Alaska, John Green (via hidinginthewoods)
I finally took the time to read “Looking for Alaska” I picked it up last week to read on my flight to Boston today and finished it today. I’d have to say its probably up there on my list of favorite books in its genre. Speaking of which, my flights were fast and easy. Of course I’m not tired because its only 9 in Arizona but I’m trying to fall asleep in my old room. I love to be back here, but why am I so impossibly sad?
