"The only thing you have to in this life is die, everything else is a choice" - The Age of Miracles

Reading was my escape and my comfort, my consolation, my stimulant of choice: reading for the pure pleasure of it, for the beautiful stillness that surrounds you when you hear an author’s words reverberating in your head.

—Paul Auster, The Brooklyn Follies (via quotes-shape-us)

(via am4n1-e)

The angel of death knows your name and knows your face, and you will recognize him like you recognize your own reflection.

—Amir Sulaiman (via abdelrahmanm)
