"The artist’s job is not to succumb to despair but to find an antidote for the emptiness of existence."
Gertrude Stein, Midnight in Paris (via ravenzwart)
"All that we see or seem is but a dream within a dream."
Edgar Allan Poe (via misswallflower)
"If only there could be an invention that bottled up a memory, like scent. And it never faded, and it never got stale. And then, when one wanted it, the bottle could be uncorked, and it would be like living the moment all over again."
Daphne du Maurier (via misswallflower)
