Hiroshi Hamaya: Bamboo forest, Kagoshima, Japan, 1960
Happiness. It was the place where passion, with all its dazzle and drumbeat, met something softer: homecoming and safety and pure sunbeam comfort. It was all those things, intertwined with the heat and the thrill, and it was as bright within her as a swallowed star.
—Laini Taylor, Daughter of Smoke & Bone (via quoted-books)
You know when you’re young and you drop a glass and your dad says like ‘Get out of the way’ so you can be safe while he cleans it up? Well, now nobody really cares if I clean it up myself. Nobody really cares if I get cut with glass. If I break something, no one says ‘Let me take care of that.’ You know?
—Hannah Horvath (Girls)
