Later she remembered all the hours of the afternoon as happy - one of those uneventful times that seem at the moment only a link between past and future pleasure, but turn out to have been the pleasure itself. - Tender is the Night.
Here's why I will be a good person. Because I listen. I cannot talk, so I listen very well. I never deflect the course of the conversation with a comment of my own. People, if you pay attention to them, change the direction of one another's conversations constantly. It's like being a passenger in your car who suddenly grabs the steering wheel and turns you down a side street. For instance, if we met at a party and I wanted to tell you a story about the time I needed to get a soccer ball in my neighbor's yard but his dog chased me and I had to jump into a swimming pool to escape, and I began telling the story, you, hearing the words "soccer" and "neighbor" in the same sentence, might interrupt and mention that your childhood neighbor was Pele, the famous soccer player, and I might be courteous and say, Didn't he play for the Cosmos of New York? Did you grow up in New York? And you might reply that, no, you grew up in Brazil on the streets of Tres Coracoes with Pele, and I might say, I thought you were from Tennessee, and you might say not originally, and then go on to outline your genealogy at length. So my initial conversational gambit - that I had a funny story about being chased by my neighbor's dog - would be totally lost, and only because you had to tell me all about Pele. Learn to listen! I beg of you. Pretend you are a dog like me and listen to other people rather than steal their stories. - The Art of Racing in the Rain
Like Salvador Dali’s paintings of watches melting in the sand, time wanders at its own curious pace whenever you’re on vacation in a foreign country...
My most unique Fox - I am looking for friends. What does that mean - tame?" "It is an act too often neglected," said the fox. "It means to establish ties." "To establish ties?" "Just that," said the fox. "To me, you are still nothing more than a little boy who is just like a hundred thousand other little boys. And I have no need of you. And you, on your part, have no need of me. To you I am nothing more than a fox like a hundred thousand other foxes. But if you tame me, then we shall need each other. To me, you will be unique in all the world. To you, I shall be unique in all the world....
It won't work,' Mr. Bentley continued, sipping his tea. 'No matter how hard you try to be what you once were, you can only be what you are here and now. Time hypnotizes. When you're nine, you think you've always been nine years old and will always be. When you're thirty, it seems you've always been balanced there on that bright rim of middle life. And then when you turn seventy, you are always and forever seventy. You're in the present, you're trapped in a young now or an old now, but there is no other now to be seen. - Dandelion Wine.
You forget everything. The hours slip by. You travel in your chair through centuries you seem seem to see before you, your thoughts are caught up in the story, dallying with the details or following the course of the plot, you enter into characters, so that it seems as if it were your own heart beating beneath their costumes...P.S And guys, whats your favorite book(s)? #summerplans #youdontneedbiggerboobsyouneedtoreadbetterbooks
Ура! @annamovie уже ЗАВТРА в России! Я помню как на премьере «Валериан» Люк пообещал что следующий фильм будет снимать в России. Тогда все подумали что нашей стране сделан комплимент, не более. Но Люк слово свое сдержал - мы снимали в Москве, снимали с Нашими актерами, мерзли в Нашей зиме, ели много Наших пельменей и очень старались. Старались снять классный фильм. Надеюсь у нас получилось, и Вам понравится! P.S А еще моя Мама снялась в роли моей Мамы. И хотя это всего лишь пара секунд - это Мама. Мы снимали в ее день рождения и это был Невероятный подарок. Спасибо Люку за это.

I wonder what Piglet is doing," thought Pooh. "I wish I were there to be doing it, too.

Let me rephrase it : We’ll always have Morocco!
I wanted to go on sitting there, not talking, not listening to the others, keeping the moment precious for all time, because we were peaceful all of us, we were content and drowsy even as the bee who droned above our heads. In a little while it would be different, there would come tomorrow, and the next day and another year. And we would be changed perhaps, never sitting quite like this again. Some of us would go away, or suffer, or die, the future stretched away in front of us, unknown, unseen, not perhaps what we wanted, not what we planned. This moment was safe though, this could not be touched.

How much I miss this one! Having her by my side through all these years, despite all the arguments and fights we had, it was truly one of the best gifts modeling gave me. I don’t believe you can have many true friends, and even finding 1 real one is hard enough, but I was very lucky. @nastyasten
My mother was right: When you've got nothing left, all you can do is get into silk underwear and start reading Proust. Jane Birkin
Я не могу писать о Войне. Потому что жутко, больно, и страшно. И ком в горле. Спасибо вам, всем тем кто там был, тем кто ушел, кто сражался, кто во всем этом ужасе смог выстоять, не сломаться, всем вам такое Спасибо, такая Благодарность...Что живы мои родители, что жива я. Спасибо! А на фото мой Прадедушка, мы его очень Любим, и очень Помним.

She was born under the sign of Gemini. And that stands for the good and evil twin. Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde both hiding and residing inside her heart. Her good twin was not bad at all. But her evil twin was even better, and showed up to be way too fatal! #cheesyquote #geminipower
Fairy tales are more than true: not because they tell us that dragons exist, but because they tell us that dragons can be beaten.
Happy Tuesday everyone! #anna
Dear Ladies! Happy International Women’s Day! Not like we need a special day to celebrate our awesomeness ( at any age), our glorious charms ( definitely at any age), and our superpowers ( more and more with every year!), but its still nice to have one! So I wish you all to live every day celebrating your beauty, your differences, your little flaws, your laugh, your humor, your everything! 🥂🎊⭐️
Thank you so much House Chanel and Karl Lagerfeld and everyone who worked with him and loved him for this very special collection and very emotional show. Thank you for presenting it with so much love and care, thank you for giving all of us this moment when we felt like he is still there, even tho he never left. It was just... wonderful.
Happy Birthday Mama! You are my Fairy Lady, my super warrior, my heart, and simply my super awesome mom. Очень тебя люблю, Мусенька!
Good bye, Kaiser Karl! Its a terrible loss for all of us. For people who loved you, for people who admire you, for everyone who was looking up to you. For the world, in so many ways. He was a LEGEND, a great friend, incredible person and truly unbelievable artist. P.S And thinking about him, one of the things that i will remember always - his honesty. Its not easy to be true to yourself, to say what you mean, and to mean what you say. To be brave enough to show yourself, and be proud of it. And thats something so unique. He gave us so much, and I thought he will be here forever.
