“Every human being has hundreds of separate people living under his skin. The talent of a writer is his ability to give them their separate names, identities, personalities and have them relate to other characters living with them.”—Mel Brooks (via writingquotes)
“Lonely’s a temporary condition, a cloud that blocks out the sun for a spell and then makes the sunshine seem even brighter after it travels along. Like when you’re far away from home and you miss the people you love and it seems like you’re never going to see them again. But you will, and you do, and then you’re not lonely anymore.
Lonesome’s a whole other thing. Incurable. Terminal. A hole in your heart you could drive a semi truck through. So big and so deep that no amount of money or whiskey or pussy or dope in the whole goddamn world can fill it up because you dug it yourself and you’re digging it still, one lie, one disappointment, one broken promise at a time.”—Steve Earle from I’ll Never Get Out Of This World Alive (via theothercanadianguy)
Tumblr:Do you realize how offensive that is? Seriously go ahead and tell me if you do. Let me answer that you stupid white privileged heterosexual male, you don't. See people like you have never even taken the time to research the fact that there are people that cannot in fact sigh. This is the kind of able-ism that makes it look like we still live in the 50's or some shit. What's next, you want to go out and lynch some PoC's with your drinking buddies? Some people are bound to iron lungs and cannot sigh even if they wanted to. You can deny your privilege of being able to sigh all you want but it will only make you look more like a privilege denying asshole. People like you make me sick. Sometimes I have no faith for this country.
