"Socializing is as exhausting as giving blood. People assume we loners are misanthropes, just sitting thinking, ‘Oh, people are such a bunch of assholes,’ but it’s really not like that. We just have a smaller tolerance for what it takes to be with others. It means having to perform. I get so tired of communicating."

"Kissing is like drinking salted water. You drink, and your thirst increases."

"When she comes:
she pulls you close
she breathes in short bursts
her eyes close

and you feel like you are everything."
— Henry Rollins (via seabois)
"Don’t think about what can happen in a month. Don’t think about what can happen in a year. Just focus on the 24 hours in front of you and do what you can to get closer to where you want to be."

"What advice can I give women today? I have no mysterious secrets to impart. The most important advice is to choose the field that makes you happiest. There is nothing better than loving your work. Second, set a goal for yourself. Even if it is an ‘impossible dream,’ each step toward it gives a feeling of accomplishment. Finally, be persistent. Don’t let yourself be discouraged by others, and believe in yourself."
— Biochemist Gertrude Elion in Scientific American (via karolena)
