  2. "It’s so much darker when a light goes out than it would have been if it had never shone."
    John Steinbeck, The Winter of our Discontent (via larmoyante)
  3. "It’s dark because you are trying too hard. Learn to do everything lightly. Yes, feel lightly even though you’re feeling deeply. Just lightly let things happen and lightly cope with them. I was so preposterously serious in those days… Lightly, lightly – it’s the best advice ever given me… So throw away your baggage and go forward. There are quicksands all about you, sucking at your feet, trying to suck you down into fear and self-pity and despair. That’s why you must walk so lightly. Lightly my darling."
    Aldous Huxley, Island (via oceanflowerbird)
  4. "I remember riding in a taxi one afternoon between very tall buildings under a mauve and rosy sky; I began to bawl because I had everything I wanted and knew I would never be so happy again."
    F. Scott Fitzgerald’s “My Lost City” (via livituppp)

  6. "Life is not permanent. Like the leaves that fall from a tree, all things are impermanent, nothing endures; there is always change and death. Have you ever noticed a tree standing naked against a sky, how beautiful it is? All its branches are outlined, and in its nakedness there is a poem, there is a song. Every leaf is gone and it is waiting for the spring. When the spring comes it again fills the tree with the music of many leaves, which in due season fall and are blown away; and that is the way of life."
    Jiddu Krishnamurti, Think on These Things (via litverve)

About me

My name begins with an M and ends with aggie, and I am a complete goof of a person.
I also identify as 21, nerd, queer, and rad! feminist.

This blog will probably be a ton of 30 Rock, Tina Fey, Parks and Rec, Audrey Hepburn, movies, art, poetry, and books.

Read the Printed Word!
