a-thousand-words








Hi, 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.

    "Dive in with your eyes closed
    For the life you were born to claim
    And the water will be paralysed
    By the courage you contain
    And the flutter of your earnest heart
    It will fill the silent seas
    And all will be restored in your memory. "

    — Watermark, Sleeping at Last

    If I give you my favorite book to read that means I like you.

    I might also give you emotional trauma that lasts you for the eternity of your existence, but I like you.
