I watched the most recent Mad Men episodes again, and it’s just one of the greatest shows ever, and the best to begin post-Sopranos. Remarkable.

When I look back, I am so impressed again with the life-giving power of literature. If I were a young person today, trying to gain a sense of myself in the world, I would do that again by reading, just as I did when I was young.

Quote reblogged from The Sphere Also Gazes Into You... with 7,086 notes

You will learn that sometimes human beings have to just sit in one place and, like, HURT. That you will become way less concerned with what other people think of you when you realize how seldom they do. That there is such a thing as raw, unalloyed, agendaless kindness. That it is possible to fall asleep during an anxiety attack.
