“In my mind I am eloquent; I can climb intricate scaffolds of words to reach the highest cathedral ceilings and paint my thoughts. But when I open my mouth, everything collapses.”—Warm Bodies by Isaac Marion (via uponswallows)
“Our words are caught in our throats and our fingers are caught in each other, and between the ticks of infinite clocks there is a hush, like moonlight or moths’ wings or dawn.”—Madison Maheni (via dwales)
In a theory known as the Musica Universalis, Pythagoras proposed that the Sun, Moon and planets all emit their own unique hum (orbital resonance) based on their orbital revolution and that the quality of life on Earth reflects the tenor of celestial sounds which are physically imperceptible to the human ear.
“Study me as much as you like, you will never know me, for i differ a hundred ways from what you see me to be. put yourself behind my eyes, and see me as i see myself, for i have chosen to dwell in a place you cannot see.”—Rumi
“How can I keep my soul in me, so that it doesn’t touch your soul?
How can I raise it high enough, past you, to other things?
I would like to shelter it, among remote
lost objects, in some dark and silent place
that doesn’t resonate when your depths resound.
Yet everything that touches us, me and you,
takes us together like a violin’s bow,
which draws one voice out of two separate strings.”—Rainer Maria Rilke
