Noctis Verses

“You never have to change anything you got up in the middle of the night to write.” ― Saul Bellow



Happy (?)

“When we are happy, we are always good, but when we are good, we are not always happy.” 

― Oscar Wilde, The Picture of Dorian Gray



“I wondered why I couldn’t go the whole way doing what I should any more. This made me sad and tired. Then I wondered why I couldn’t go the whole way doing what I shouldn’t, the way Doreen did, and this made me even sadder and more tired.”

― Sylvia Plath, The Bell Jar

Burn out

“It’s better to burn out than to fade away.” 

― Kurt Cobain


“He: What’s the matter with you?

Me: Nothing.

Nothing was slowly clotting my arteries. Nothing slowly numbing my soul. Caught by nothing, saying nothing, nothingness becomes me. When I am nothing they will say surprised in the way that they are forever surprised, “but there was nothing the matter with her.” 

― Jeanette Winterson, Gut Symmetries

Real (?)

“I mean, you could claim that anything’s real if the only basis for believing in it is that nobody’s proved it doesn’t exist!” 

― J.K. Rowling

Ignition (?)

“I feel like I’ve been split open and stuffed with sunshine.”

― Tahereh Mafi, Ignite Me


“Of all things, I liked books best.”

― Nikola Tesla

Anticlimatic (?!)

“Go to heaven for the climate and hell for the company.” 

― Benjamin Franklin Wade

For a friend (?)

“If you know someone who’s depressed, please resolve never to ask them why. Depression isn’t a straightforward response to a bad situation; depression just is, like the weather.

Try to understand the blackness, lethargy, hopelessness, and loneliness they’re going through. Be there for them when they come through the other side. It’s hard to be a friend to someone who’s depressed, but it is one of the kindest, noblest, and best things you will ever do.”

― Stephen Fry
