In seeking Your pleasure
“Does she know what you’re like?”
“Yes. I keep telling her.”
“Doesn’t believe you, eh? Ah, such is the way of a woman in love,” sighed Mrs Lavish.
“I don’t think it worries her, actually. She’s not your average girl.”
“Ah, and she sees your inner self? Or, perhaps, the carefully constructed inner self you keep around for people to find? People like you…” She paused and went on: “… people like us always keep at least one inner self for inquisitive visitors, don’t we?
Topsy Lavish was pretty great. (via wonsab)
Making Money, Terry Pratchett
If you don’t have enough madness in you, go and rehabilitate yourself
If you’ve lost a hundred times the chess game of this life, be prepared to lose one more
If you’re the wounded string of a harp on this stage, play once more and then cease resonating,
If you’re that exhausted bird fighting a falcon for too long make a comeback and be strong,
You’ve carved a wooden horse - riding and calling it real, fooling yourself in life
Though only a wooden horse, ride it again my friend, and gallop to the next post,
You’ve never really listened to what God has always tried to tell you
Yet you keep hoping, after your mock prayers - that salvation will arrive Rumi (via thelittlephilosopher)
