the truth;

"why does one begin to write? because she feels misunderstood, i guess. because it never comes out clearly enough when she tries to speak. because she wants to rephrase the world, to take it in and give it back again differently, so that everything is used and nothing is lost. because it’s something to do to pass the time until she is old enough to experience the things she writes about."

-nicole krauss, “the history of love”.

  1. how do you always find the best quotes? this one really hits home. i love reading something someone else has written only to find it’s exactly what i’ve been feeling without realizing it.
    pure magic.
