Reading usually precedes writing and the impulse to write is almost always fired by reading. Reading, the love of reading, is what makes you dream of becoming a writer.

Susan Sontag (via scribereautmori)

Readers, after all, are making the world with you. You give them the materials, but it’s the readers who build that world in their own minds.

Ursula Le Guin (via ilovereadingandwriting)

Zelda Fitzgerald (via introspectivepoet)

Not everything in life is black and white. Sometimes the best parts are gray. Just remember that not everything can fit into one your neat little boxes.

Alyssa Rose Ivy, Flight (via quoted-books)

There’s nothing I have to do. And nowhere I have to be. With no destination, no map, and no agenda. I’m free to just wander.
