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.

"Every second that you spend on doubting your worth, every moment that you use to criticize yourself; is a second of your life wasted, is a moment of your life thrown away. It’s not like you have forever, so don’t waste any of your seconds, don’t throw even one of your moments away. "

— C. Joybell C.

"Memory is fiction. "

Keith Richards, Life

So true, we justify everything that we’ve ever done with our own sub-plots and stories until we can’t work out if we’re telling ourselves the truth or not.

"I’m afraid of time… I mean, I’m afraid of not having enough time. Not enough time to understand people, how they really are, or to be understood myself. I’m afraid of the quick judgements or mistakes everybody makes. You can’t fix them without time. I’m afraid of seeing snapshots, not movies. "

— Ann Brashares (via uglypnis)

1924us:

Just live. Not all of us ride horses, climb mountains, have our own gardens, work on 1950’s Land Rovers or what have ya, and that is a-ok. You don’t have to fit in the confines of living “old-school” or trying to be “genuine”. Do your day to day and enjoy that! Your journey is just as captivating as anyone’s, regardless of how many filters make it look good on @instagram. It’s okay to just live, no one can ask anything more from you, and you can only one-up it by living well. - 1924
