Big Fish (2003)

"I hate the fact you always feel like you have to be going somewhere, like the end destination is to be finished, or to be happy. But the truth is a lot of us are completely lost, and we don’t know, and that is also a state of mind, to not know who you are and where you’re going."

Lykke Li (via wordsthat-speak)

"The heartbreaking necessity of lying about reality and the heartbreaking impossibility of lying about it."

Kurt Vonnegut, Cat’s Cradle (via bribrina)

"The so-called ‘psychotically depressed’ person who tries to kill herself doesn’t do so out of quote ‘hopelessness’ or any abstract conviction that life’s assets and debits do not square. And surely not because death seems suddenly appealing. The person in whom Its invisible agony reaches a certain unendurable level will kill herself the same way a trapped person will eventually jump from the window of a burning high-rise. Make no mistake about people who leap from burning windows. Their terror of falling from a great height is still just as great as it would be for you or me standing speculatively at the same window just checking out the view; i.e. the fear of falling remains a constant. The variable here is the other terror, the fire’s flames: when the flames get close enough, falling to death becomes the slightly less terrible of two terrors. It’s not desiring the fall; it’s terror of the flames. And yet nobody down on the sidewalk, looking up and yelling ‘Don’t!’ and ‘Hang on!’, can understand the jump. Not really. You’d have to have personally been trapped and felt flames to really understand a terror way beyond falling."

David Foster Wallace

"Proof is an idol before which the mathematician tortures himself."

Sir Arthur Eddington (via quotestotheleftoftheline)

"No one is more worried by the actual physical manifestation of a god than his priests; it’s like having the auditors in unexpectedly."

Terry Pratchett, Pyramids (via discworldquotes)
