This medicine won't make you feel better

Mulatu Astatke / Tezeta

“I think when you spend enough time when it’s quiet around you and you don’t open your mouth for three or four days, there’s parts of your brain that can kind of rest. I think when we’re out in the world and we have to talk to people, we edit ourselves. You know, we have to like, act a little bit. As honest as we may be as humans, when we’re out here, we’re all kind of wearing mirrors on our faces. You know, constantly reacting to how to react to the people around you. And I think when you’re alone for a long enough time, you can feel a lot more peace.”

-Justin Vernon of Bon Iver, in an interview speaking about living in his father’s cabin for three months when writing ‘For Emma, Forever Ago’

That calls darkness light
Though my language is dead
Still the shapes fill my head … “

“The happiness of writers is the thought that can be entirely emotion and the emotion that can be entirely thought. Such a pulsing thought, such a precise emotion belonged to the solitary one then: namely that nature was shaken with delight when the mind paid homage to beauty. Suddenly he wanted to write.”

– Thomas Mann, Death in Venice (via greenturtleisland)

“Me gustaba estar en la cama durante horas, incluso de día, con las sábanas subidas hasta la barbilla. Allí se estaba bien, nunca ocurría nada, no había gente, nada.”

– Charles Bukowski  (via hachedesilencio)
