"One wants to tell a story, like Scheherezade, in order not to die. It’s one of the oldest urges in mankind. It’s a way of stalling death."
Carlos Fuentes (via booklover)
And I’m both kinds. I am the story but I don’t trust anybody else besides me to do myself justice. To be honest, I don’t even trust myself but I’ll take what I can get.(via cordeliacassandra)
