a-thousand-words

This blog is about words. Pictures with writing, beautiful quotes, introspective song lyrics, clever typography or even the occasional cartoon that has made me nod in agreement, laugh or just think for a little while. A few carefully arranged words can say what 1,000 can't, and can connect people.

I collect those quotes here in a way they don't spam my first tumblr [iadoreit], or get lost in my likes, never to be seen again. Hopefully this way others will find and enjoy them too.
This is not A spoiler free blog.
