— Arab proverb (via awelltraveledwoman)
— Fyodor Dostoevsky (via aurorefleurs)
You are tired,
Of the always puzzle of living and doing;
And so am I.
Come with me, then,
And we’ll leave it far and far away—
(Only you and I, understand!)
You have played,
And broke the toys you were fondest of,
And are a little tired now;
Tired of things that break, and—
But I come with a dream in my eyes tonight,
And I knock with a rose at the hopeless gate of your heart—
Open to me!
For I will show you the places nobody knows,
And, if you like,
The perfect places of Sleep.
— You Are Tired (I Think) (EE Cummings)
