"Narcissus does not fall in love with his reflection because it is beautiful, but because it is his. If it were his beauty that enthralled him, he would be set free in a few years by its fading."
W. H. Auden (via alibis-not-needed-anymore)
"You enjoy solitude?"
“Nobody likes being alone that much. I don’t go out of my way to make friends, that’s all. It just leads to disappointment.”
- "Norwegian Wood" by Haruki Murakami
