She wasn’t doing a thing that I could see, except standing there, leaning on the balcony railing, holding the universe together.
― J. D. Salinger, Catcher In The Rye (via quotedbook)
I don’t know what’s the matter with me, why I’m so adept at distance, why I feel so remote from things, why life feels like a rumor.
David Shields, How Literature Saved My Life (via waltzinginlimbo)
