"I like to have space to spread my mind out in" Virginia Woolf

"Nothing is more damaging to the adventurous spirit within a man than a secure future. The very basic core of a man’s living spirit is his passion for adventure. The joy of life comes from our encounters with new experiences, and hence there is no greater joy than to have an endlessly changing horizon, for each day to have a new and different sun". John Krakauer - Into the wild 

"Willst du nicht so gut sein, einmal darüber nachzudenken, was dein Gutes täte, wenn das Böse nicht wäre, und wie die Erde aussähe, wenn die Schatten von ihr verschwänden? Kommen doch die Schatten von den Dingen und den Menschen. Da ist der Schatten meines Degens. Aber es gibt auch die Schatten der Bäume und der Lebewesen. Du willst doch nicht etwa den Erdball kahlscheren, alle Bäume und alles Lebende von ihm entfernen und deine Phantasie an kahlem Licht ergötzen? Du bist dumm." MICHAIL BULGAKOW Der Meister und Margarita

"Only my books anoint me and a few friends, those who reach into my veins"Anne Sexton

The Mad Hatter:
Have I gone Mad?

I'm afraid so. You are entirely bonkers. But I'll  tell you a secret. All the best people are.

(Alice Adventures in Wonderland) 

Ich ging in die Wälder, denn ich wollte wohlüberlegt leben; intensiv leben wollte ich. Das Mark des Lebens in mich aufsaugen, um alles auszurotten was nicht Leben war. Damit ich nicht in der Todesstunde inne würde, daß ich gar nicht gelebt hatte. H.D Thoreau - Walden 
Tomorrow, and tomorrow, and tomorrow
Creeps in this petty pace from day to day
To the last syllable of recorded time;
And all our yesterdays have lighted fools
The way to dusty death. Out, out, brief candle!
Life's but a walking shadow, a poor player
That struts and frets his hour upon the stage
And then is heard no more. It is a tale
Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury,
Signifying nothing.
Shakespeare - McBeth 

Lass dich nicht unterkriegen, sei frech und wild und wunderbar!“ 
Astrid Lindgren - Pippi Langstrumpf

"If only there could be an invention that bottled up a memory, like scent. And it never faded, and never got stale. And then, when one wanted it, the bottle could be uncorked, and it would be like living the moment all over again"
Daphne DuMaurier - Rebecca

I used to think I was the strangest person in the world but then I thought there are so many people in the world, there must be someone just like me who feels bizarre and flawed in the same ways I do. I would imagine her, and imagine that she must be out there thinking of me too. Well, I hope that if you are out there and read this and know that, yes, it's true I'm here, and I'm just as strange as you

Quoted in Diary of Frida Kahlo

There are such a lot of things that have no place in summer and autumn and spring. Everything that’s a little shy and a little rum. Some kinds of night animals and people that don’t fit in with others and that nobody really believes in. They keep out of the way all the year. And then when everything’s quiet and white and the nights are long and most people are asleep—then they appear.
