Coffee should not be drunk in a hurry. It is the sister of time, and should be sipped slowly, slowly. Coffee is the sound of taste, a sound for the aroma. It is a meditation and a plunge into memories and the soul.

—Mahmoud Darwish, from Memory for Forgetfulness: August, Beirut, 1982 (University of California Press, 1990)

Coffee should be injected straight into the vein.

And, in the lowest deep, a lower deep
Still threatening to devour me opens wide–”

“A monster is not such a terrible thing to be. From the Latin root monstrum, a divine messenger of catastrophe, then adapted by the Old French to mean an animal of myriad origins: centaur, griffin, satyr. To be a monster is to be a hybrid signal, a lighthouse: both shelter and warning at once.”
- Ocean Vuong, from “A Letter To My Mother That She Will Never Read”, published in The New Yorker (via mesogeios)

“I’ve been taught that love is beautiful and kind, but it isn’t like that at all. It is beautiful, but it’s a terrible beauty, a ruthless one, and you fall-you fall, and the thing is-
The thing is you want to. You don’t care what’s coming you just want who your heart beats for.”

“Don’t ever underestimate the power of your words. The power of a book. A library is not just a hall filled with paper and ink. It’s a fortress of light and darkness. It’s a weaponry of knights and angels. It’s a cave that offers protection during the storm. It’s the past, the present and the future and everything that could have been.”
- The Ágia Chronicles

“Be it known that you crush heads! Be it known that you devour corpses like a dog! Be it known that your gaze is terrible! Be it known that you lift your terrible gaze! Be it known that you have flashing eyes! Be it known that you are unshakeable and unyielding! Be it known that you always stand triumphant!”
- Enheduanna, excerpt of The Exaltation of Inana (via antigonick)
