I’m self-sufficient. I spend a lot of time on my own and I shut off quite easily. When I communicate, I communicate 900 per cent, then I shut off, which scares people sometimes.
Bjork on ‘Self-Sufficiency (via sexual-feelings)
I feel so intensely the delights of shutting oneself up in a little world of one’s own, with pictures and music and everything beautiful.
Virginia Woolf, The Voyage Out (via ablogwithaview)
Come away, O, human child!
To the woods and waters wild,
With a fairy hand in hand,
For the world’s more full of weeping than you can understand.
W.B. Yeats, The Stolen Child (from Fairy and Folk Tales of the Irish Peasantry)
