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.

"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.

A good scare is worth more than good advice.

—Paulo Coelho (via kari-shma)
