And we are the dreamers of dreams,
Wandering by lone sea-breakers,
And sitting by desolate streams.
World-losers and world-forsakers,
Upon whom the pale moon gleams;
Yet we are the movers and shakers,
Of the world forever, it seems.” —Arthur O’Shaughnessy:1874
Death steals everything, everything except our stories.
this is the start of what shall best be described as a list. although I’m not a writer or english major of any sort, i thoroughly enjoy words. both in their physical sense and meaning (especially when you sting a bunch of them together!).
i’ve realized over time that i have a fondness for quotes. good ones. generally, ones that if you read them out loud, you get little goose bumps all over. so enjoy.
