Apparently orgasm is the only point where your mind becomes completely empty—you think of nothing for that second. That’s why it’s so compelling—it’s a tiny taste of death. Your mind is void—you have nothing in your head save white light.
Jeff Buckley (via biscodeja-vu)
…I must first pay tribute to Conan Doyle, the pioneer of detective writing, with his two great creations Sherlock Holmes and Watson – Watson, perhaps the greater creation of the two. Holmes after all has his properties, his violin, his dressing gown, his cocaine, etc – Watson has just himself – lovable, obtuse, faithful, maddening, guaranteed to be always wrong, and perpetually in a state of admiration. How badly we all need a Watson in our lives!
Agatha Christie, “Why I Got Fed Up With Poirot” (1930) x (via silverstags)
“Imperfect understanding is often more dangerous than ignorance.”
~ Newt Scamander, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them
