“​​Soltanto ciò che è delicato ,
e concepito con delicatezza,
può dare nutrimento all'amore.
All'odio , invece ,
tutto dà nutrimento.”

Rereading parts of The Picture of Dorian Gray. Thoughts: Lord Henry is LITERALLY the devil. Like an allegory for the devil. Think about it. Anyways totally unrelated to that thought but this...

Normalise liking poetry because you like the way it sounds and art because you think its beautiful. You don’t have to understand the deeper meaning of something to appreciate it - poetry is bloody difficult to analyse and art requires an extensive knowledge of movements and artists to properly get - so please just wonder around art galleries and decide which pieces you’d buy if you could, and read out lines of poetry simply because they have a nice ring to them.

I love my English lectures but one thing that genuinely upsets me is seeing how many works of Irish literature are claimed as or assumed to be “British literature”. Like Bram Stoker, Oscar Wilde and Seamus Heaney weren’t British artists...they were Irish. Why does Britain get to take credit for Irish pieces???

I wish everyone would admit that classic literature is inherently difficult to read, and that you shouldn’t feel stupid if you don’t “get it”. Especially the dark academia/ classic lit fandoms and stuff. Like unless you have the vocabulary and pop culture knowledge of an 18th century nobleman, it’s going to be a tough read. It’ll take you longer to read; you’re not stupid if you’ve spent several months on a single book! And you don’t have to enjoy everything. It’s okay if you got bored after one chapter of Wuthering Heights, and couldn’t be bothered to read the rest. It’s okay if you want to read your favourite kids book for the 10th time instead. You’re not stupid. No piece of literature is inherently better, more “important”, more “meaningful”, or more “intellectual” than another. First and foremost, read what brings you joy.

They say if we are sitting on the stars and watching the earth, we'd see ourselves from years ago. That means if this love doesn't last, someday we could be looking at the same stars and the stars would look back at us and see us years ago when we were together and in love.

I think it's very healthy to spend time alone. You need to know how to be alone and not be defined by another person.
Oscar Wilde
