"I never paid any attention to people who told me to go out and live. I belonged always to whatever was far from me and to whatever I could never be. Anything that was not mine, however base, always seemed to me to be full of poetry. The only thing I ever loved was pure nothingness."
- Fernando Pessoa, The Book Of Disquiet (via wordsnquotes)

HEY REMEMBER BACK THEN IN 1961 WHEN BREAKFAST AT TIFFANY’S CAME OUT AND HOLLY GOLIGHTLY DID NOT SAY ANYTHING AFTER PAUL VARJAK SAID “I LOVE YOU” AND THEN 50 YEARS LATER SOMEONE THOUGHT IT WOULD BE FUN TO MAKE A SCREENCAP OF HOLLY SAYING “THANKS” AND THEN WE ALL GOT REALLY MAD BECAUSE THAT SHIT NEVER HAPPENED AND PEOPLE THINK IT’S COOL WITHOUT NOTICING IT ISN’T TRUE BECAUSE THEY DIDN’T EVEN WATCH THE MOVIE?

"Although I cannot find in it either objective meaning or transcendental finality, existence, with its multiplicity of forms, has never ceased to be a source of both delight and sadness. At times, the beauty of a flower is enough to justify in my eyes the principle of universal finality while at others, the smallest cloud troubling the serenity of the sky rekindles my somber pessimism. Those who interiorize excessively discover symbolic meanings in the most insignificant aspects of nature."
- Emil Cioran, The Satanic Principle of Suffering

"I’ve witnessed, … the gradual collapse of my life, the slow foundering of all I wanted to be… Fate has always tried to make me love or want things just so that it could show me, on the very next day, that I didn’t have and could never have them."
- Fernando Pessoa, The Book of Disquiet (via heresay)

"Everything around me is evaporating. My whole life, my memories, my imagination and its contents, my personality - it’s all evaporating. I continuously feel that I was someone else, that I felt something else, that I thought something else. What I’m attending here is a show with another set. And the show I’m attending is myself."
- Fernando Pessoa (via blackestdespondency)

This photo inspired a scene of ‘La dolce vita’, by Fellini. Taken in 1958, at the Via Veneto, it shows the Swedish actress Anita Ekberg - who appeared in the film - with British actor Anthony Steel, her husband at the time.
