How terrible and brief was my desire of you!
How difficult and drunken, how tensed and avid.

Cemetery of kisses, there is still fire in your tombs,
still the fruited boughs burn, pecked at by birds.

Oh the bitten mouth, oh the kissed limbs,
oh the hungering teeth, oh the entwined bodies.

Oh the mad coupling of hope and force
in which we merged and despaired…


Pablo Neruda, “Song of Despair” from Twenty Love Poems and a Song of Despair.

"A chief event of life is the day in which we have encountered a mind that startled us."

Ralph Waldo Emerson

Someday, I want to be one half of that couple whose cute photos get a thousand likes, because they are literally adorable.  *le sigh*

"Tony, you’re too young to understand this right now, so I thought I would put it on film for you.  I built this for you.  And some day you’ll realize that it represents a whole lot more than people’s inventions - it represents my life’s work.  This is the key to the future.  I’m limited by the technology of my time, but one day you’ll figure this out.  And when you do, you will change the world.  What is, and always will be, my greatest creation… is you.”

- Howard Stark, Iron Man 2
