"I am sad and have a passion for unknown, distant places. I want to see the world. And I would love it, if I just had the chance to get away for a little while. But sadly, things aren’t that easy; desire won’t change a thing."
— A Dying Flower (Abraham M. Alghanem)
"At some point I realized I could use everyone else’s writing. And then it was like I was a kid; suddenly a toy shop opened up and the toy shop was actually entirely filled with culture. It felt like I didn’t even have to pretend I was interested in the problem of identity anymore. I could just copy everything."
— David Shields (via thoughtcatalog)
