Death is beautiful, for death is strange;
Death is one dream out of another flowing.

The first recorded definition of the word “anthology” was “a bouquet of flowers.”

How poetic is it that we now use “anthology” to refer to collections of written work? The English language is truly a beautiful thing.

#YES YES YES YES THIS IS HOW GOOD BOOKS SHOULD LOOK #i understand it when people hate cracked spines #but anybody that says a battered and falling apart book is sad #and thinks that’s not how you love a book #is talking shit #i love books and they look good like this #they are meant to be read and passed around and get crushed in bags because you can’t leave the house without them #you’re meant to dog ear the pages you love and underline in pencil and stick in stickynotes #if you want pristine you should buy an e-reader #because this is how you experience a book

i applaud you, dear tagger of the tags 

Agreed.
