“I don’t like the idea of “understanding” a film. I don’t believe that rational understanding is an essential element in the reception of any work of art. Either a film has something to say to you or it hasn’t. If you are moved by it, you don’t need it explained to you. If not, no explanation can make you moved by it.”—Federico Fellini (via blairwaldorfsquad)
Books don’t necessarily cure sadness but they are dependable and consoling. They don’t zap away the problems in your life but they take you into another world where your problems become so much lighter. I really think I’d go mad without books.
One minute I’m jamming to the music in my ear. The next I’m thinking about shit that’s been going on in my life and tearing up on public transport. And the next minute I’m trying to hold back laughter because of how my life is basically a fucking joke.
