A road of books by Marla_lu.
You are never too old to set another goal or to dream a new dream.

C. S. Lewis (via lyssahumana)

[True.]

The world is divided between kids who grow up wanting to be their parents and those like us, who grow up wanting to be anything but. Neither group ever succeeds.
Richard Russo; Straight Man
Make time to read.

Make time to read.

| Ode to Books |
How I love you -0- my books, 
your tattered covers and well-thumbed pages.
My friends, my companions, 
doorways to journeys of mind and heart.
For untold hours, I have held you in my hands,
you have inspired and confused me,
brought me joy and smiles and tears.
You have kept me awake at night. 
You have fallen asleep on my chest, slept in my bed and 
sat alongside me on voyages deep and shallow. 
Now, you inhabit my home· 
lining my life with meaning and 
Happiness.
[ You can found the original ode on Last Lemon ]

Η ωδή στα ϐιϐλία από το last lemon ϰαι μια ελεύϑεϱη,
διϰή μου, μετάφϱαση της στα ελληνιϰά.
Πόσο σας αɣαπώ -ο- ϐιϐλιαϱάϰια μου,
τα ϰουϱελιασμένα σας εƶώφυλλα ϰαι τις σελίδες σας
που τόσες φοϱές έxω φυλλομετϱήσει.
Φίλοι μου, συνοδοί μου
πύλες στα ταƶίδια του μυαλού ϰαι της ϰαϱδιάς.
Αμέτϱητες ώϱες, σας ϰϱάτησα στα xέϱια μου,
μου δώσατε έμπνευση ϰαι με μπεϱδέψατε,
μου πϱοσφέϱατε xαϱά ϰαι xαμόɣελα ϰαι δάϰϱυα.
Με ϰϱατήσατε ƶύπνια τις νύxτες
Αποϰοιμηϑήϰατε μέσα στην αɣϰαλιά μου, στο ϰϱεϐάτι,
ϰαι ϰαϑίσατε στο πλάι μου σε ταƶίδια, στα ϐαϑιά ϰαι στα ϱηxά.
Τώϱα ϰατοιϰείτε στο σπίτι μου
ɣεμίzοντας τη zωή μου νόημα ϰαι ευτυxία.

"The Reader" by aimeelikestotakepics
You should never read just for “enjoyment.” Read to make yourself smarter! Less judgmental. More apt to understand your friends’ insane behavior, or better yet, your own. Pick “hard books.” Ones you have to concentrate on while reading. And for god’s sake, don’t let me ever hear you say, “I can’t read fiction. I only have time for the truth.” Fiction is the truth, fool! Ever hear of “literature”? That means fiction, too, stupid.

"Love this little cozy spot" by Kimono Loco

Introverts, in contrast, may have strong social skills and enjoy parties and business meetings, but after a while wish they were home in their pajamas. They prefer to devote their social energies to close friends, colleagues, and family. They listen more than they talk, think before they speak, and often feel as if they express themselves better in writing than in conversation. They tend to dislike conflict. Many have a horror of small talk, but enjoy deep discussions.
Susan Cain (via quotes-shape-us)
Since then, at an uncertain hour,
That agony returns:
And till my ghastly tale is told,
This heart within me burns.
Samuel Taylor Coleridge (via observando)
