So full of frost, of storm, and cloudiness.
-Don Pedro to Benedick, in Shakespeare’s Much Ado About Nothing 5.4.41-42 (via mercurieux)
“Because sending a letter is the next best thing to showing up personally at someone’s door. Ink from your pen touches the stationary, your fingers touch the paper, your saliva seals the envelope, your scent graces the paper. Something tangible from your world travels through machines and hands, and deposits itself in another’s mailbox; their world. Your letter is then carried inside as an invited guest. The paper that was sitting on your desk, now sits on another’s. The recipient handles the paper that you handled. Letters create a connection that modern and impersonal forms of communication will never replace.”
"Maybe I’m spending too much of my time starting up clubs and putting on plays. I should probably be trying harder to score chicks."
