Everything would be right in the world if you’d come over and make me toast with butter and jam.

Whoever wants …

Whoever wants music instead of noise, joy instead of pleasure, soul instead of gold, creative work instead of business, passion instead of foolery, finds no home in this trivial world of ours.

– Hermann Hesse


You are the only thing I have that is neither duty nor obligation, the only thing I chose for myself. The only thing I want.

– Holly Black
