Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing and rightdoing there is a field. I'll meet you there. When the soul lies down in that grass the world is too full to talk about.

The two hardest tests on the spiritual road are the patience to wait for the right moment and the courage not to be disappointed with what we encounter.

The writing in "wuthering heights" it's the most intense I've ever seen..... I didn't expected to cry that much but it's such a beautiful and desperate book!! I wish I could sit with emily brontë and have a conversation to understand wtf is up with her

WE MADE LOVE
I think somewhere, in a parallel world, we made love in a garden of wilted flowers. Our trembling hands reaching out toward the sky, trying to grasp the last watery rays of a dying sun. Two hearts colliding and shattering into a million tiny stars.

Soul Mates
I don't know how you are so familiar to me- or why it feels less like I am getting to know you and more as though I am remembering who you are. How every smile, every whisper brings me closer to the impossible conclusion that I have known you before, I have loved you before-in another time, a different place some other existence.
– Lang Leav

Stardust
If you came to me with a face I have not seen, with a voice I have never heard, I would still know you. Even if centuries separated us, I would still feel you. Somewhere between the sand and the stardust, through every collapse and creation, there is a pulse that echoes of you and I. When we leave this world, we give up all our possessions and our memories. Love is the only thing we take with us. It is all we carry from one life to the next.
– Lang Leav; Memories.

"What greater thing is there for two human souls, than to feel that they are joined for life to strengthen each other in all labour, to rest on each other in all sorrow, to minister to each other in all pain, to be one with each other in silent unspeakable memories at the moment of the last parting?"
– George Eliot

THE ROSE
Have you ever loved a rose, and watched her slowly bloom; and as her petals would unfold, you grew drunk on her perfume.
Have you ever seen her dance, her leaves all wet with dew; and quivered with a new romance the wind, he loved her too.
Have you ever longed for her, on nights that go on and on; for now, her face is all a blur, like a memory kept too long.
Have you ever loved a rose, and bled against her thorns; and swear each night to let her go, then love her more by dawn.
– Lang Leav

Perhaps it is the greatest grief, after all, to be left on earth when another is gone.

Meet @violetlilliesrp
Tumblr: @violetlilliesrp
Pronouns: she/her
Age: 23
Country: Germany
Languages I am comfortable with: I prefer English but I also speak German, Italian, French and Japanese
Things I am interested in: learning foreign languages, reading and writing (fan fiction, non-fiction and classical literature, mostly), watching YouTube/TV shows, travelling, cooking/baking, hiking, going out with friends, going to the theatre/opera, history, linguistics, philosophy, psychology
What I am looking for: Ideally I would love to find someone to voice chat with, either on Discord, Skype or maybe some other app/website but I would also be fine with text chatting/pen pals. Due to the lockdowns I’m stuck at home with nothing to do and would love to talk to someone new and find an internet buddy to chat with on a regular basis. I can honestly talk about anything and tend to be quite talkative once I get to know someone. I can also help if you are learning German or if you are learning another foreign language we can motivate each other :D I would also prefer to only speak with other women so please only message me if you're female as well! :)
Fun Fact about me: I’m really into historical fashion and if I could get away with wearing historical dresses every day I totally would :D
Other:
- Fandoms: Harry Potter, Detroit: Become Human, The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, Supernatural, Marvel/Avengers, Shameless, Merlin, DC/Batman & a ton more! I love talking about them and I'm a fanfic 'connoisseur' :D
- I have a dog <33
- I would love to learn every single language in existence but I already fail at speaking my native language
- I would love to find someone I could have a genuine connection with (so we can skip that awkward initial stage in a friendship)
- I’m really chill so don’t feel any pressure if you can’t talk for a while
- My tumblr is empty but I’ll still respond, I promise :D

If Hamlet took place today, Hamlet wouldn’t avenge his father’s death. He’d probably lock himself in his room and blast My Chemical Romance all the while writing in his journal about how much the world hates him.

how does Oscar Wilde have permission to write stuff like “Death must be so beautiful. To lie in the soft brown earth, with the grasses waving above one's head, and listen to silence. To have no yesterday, and no tomorrow. To forget time, to forgive life, to be at peace.” like ...... wow.
