Love is a haunting melody that I have never mastered, and I fear I never will.

William S. Burroughs (via serialstranger)

I love Conrad but I read it again in English literature class… I agree with you, is dark but there is so many perspectives into the whole literature and the topics even in the words and the ‘secret’ mean. Don’t worry just talk about what you felt and describe (if you can) the vision of Conrad at write this book. It’s complex but beautiful and worth it.

Destiny. My destiny! Droll thing life is—that mysterious arrangement of merciless logic for a futile purpose. The most you can hope from it is some knowledge of yourself—that comes too late—a crop of unextinguishable regrets. I have wrestled with death. It is the most unexciting contest you can imagine. It takes place in an impalpable grayness, with nothing underfoot, with nothing around, without spectators, without clamor, without glory, without the great desire of victory, without the great fear of defeat, in a sickly atmosphere of tepid skepticism, without much belief in your own right, and still less in that of your adversary. If such is the form of ultimate wisdom, then life is a greater riddle than some of us think it to be.

Joseph Conrad, Heart of Darkness

I believe in love and lust and sex and romance. I don’t want everything to add up to some perfect equation. I want mess and chaos. I want someone to go crazy out of his mind for me. I want to feel passion and heat and sweat and madess and I want Valentines and Cupids and all the rest of that crap. I want it all.

The mind is its own place, and in itself can make a heaven of hell, a hell of heaven.
