“My heartbeat accelerates. I am in the here, in the now. I can also in the future. I am holding her and wanting and knowing and hoping all at once. We are the ones who take this thing called music and line it up with this thing called time. We are the ticking, we are the pulsing, we are underneath every part of this moment. And by making the moment our own, we are rendering it timeless. There is no audience. There are no instruments. There are only bodies and thoughts and murmurs and looks. It’s the concert rush to end all concert rushes, because this is what matters. When the heart races, this is what it’s racing toward.”—
Nick & Norah’s Infinite Playlist by Rachel Cohn and David Levithan
“Edward or Jacob?
Here’s the thing about Edward Cullen… Edward is a very beautiful but very empty vessel into which we can stuff all our hopes and aspirations. And believe me, I understand that people who are primarily ideas are a lot more attractive than people who are primarily people. But I have to say that in my experience, being in love with a person that is mostly an idea is not really a sustainable situation. All of which is to say… Jacob.”—John Green, Guys Love Giraffe Love (via consonantsnfouls)
