a-thousand-wordsHi, I'm Hannah.

I'm 25, English, and I love words.

Welcome to my tumblr.

an introduction

This blog is about words.
Expect to find beautiful quotes, introspective song lyrics, clever typography, picture quotes, and 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 started collect those quotes here so they wouldn't spam my original tumblr , 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. You'll find I am a fan of many things, and that filters through here.

(Please note most posts are queued. The twitter updates it's self.)

"The best moments in reading are when you come across something — a thought, a feeling, a way of looking at things — that you'd thought special, particular to you. And here it is, set down by someone else, a person you've never met, maybe even someone long dead. And it's as if a hand has come out and taken yours." - Hector, The History Boys.

"Sometimes I feel so lost and disconnected, like I should have been born at a different time or that maybe I shouldn’t be here at all. And I consider the possibility that life isn’t exactly right for me. "

You end up real disappointed when you go through life thinking people have the same heart as you.

"Never hide away your escape because one person has the potential to taint it for you. If you must write about them, let the ink flow. If you must sing about them, sing until you’re hoarse. Do what you must to get them out of your system, or at least until thinking about them doesn’t keep you up at night.

Missing someone doesn’t have to hurt. "
