"You will hear thunder and remember me,
And think: she wanted storms. The rim
Of the sky will be the colour of hard crimson,
And your heart, as it was then, will be on fire."
Anna Akhmatova, The Complete Poems (via observando)
"My solitude doesn’t depend on the presence or absence of people; on the contrary, I hate who steals my solitude without, in exchange, offering me true company."
"In this world, there are things you can only do alone, and things you can only do with somebody else. It’s important to combine the two in just the right amount."
Haruki Murakami, After Dark (via wordsnquotes)
