A Collector

Ask me anything  
Welcome to my little online space where I collect line drawings, pictures of old-fashioned things and libraries, good humour and meaningful quotes. Oh, if you can't tell by now, turquoise is one of my all-time favourite colours.

"The only dream worth having is to dream that you will live while you are alive, and die only when you are dead. To love, to be loved. To never forget your own insignificance. To never get used to the unspeakable violence and vulgar disparity of the life around you. To seek joy in the saddest places. To pursue beauty to its lair. To never simplify what is complicated or complicate what is simple. To respect strength, never power. Above all to watch. To try and understand. To never look away. And never, never to forget."
