When people talk, listen completely. Most people never listen.Ernest Hemingway (via surrenderlove)
happy to get back there this summer.
“I don’t care anymore about the handsome wealthy boys who come gingerly into the living room to take out the girl they thought would look nice in an evening cocktail dress…I said I wanted to go out with them to meet new people. I ask you, what logic is there in that? What guy you would like, would see the depths in a girl outwardly like all the other physical american queenies? So why go places with guys you can’t talk to? You’ll never meet a soul that way - not the sort you want to meet. Better to stay in your garret reading than to go from one party to another. Face it, kid: unless you can be yourself, you won’t stay with anyone for long. You’ve got to be able to talk. That’s tough. But spend your nights learning, so you’ll have something to say. Something the “attractive intelligent man” will want to listen to.”
— Sylvia Plath
Okay. Maybe not ever. But you get my point.

My dear, but if I make the pearly gates, I’ll do my best to make a drawing of God and Lucifer, a boy and a girl - an angel kissin’ on a sinner. A monkey and a man, a marching band, all around the frightened trapeze swinger.
