“For, after all, how do we know that two and two make four? Or that the force of gravity works? Or that the past is unchangeable? If both the past and the external world exist only in the mind, and if the mind itself is controllable – what then?”
"there was a time before you
but I can’t remember it now
a time before your beauty and I
were formally introduced
I’m sure I lived without you
but I don’t remember how
can’t imagine living without
these feelings you’ve produced

just one glance
and my life was redrawn
just one word
and my vocabulary changed
I asked the time
and you said ‘what’s the hurry?’
you asked my name
and I almost forgot"
-David Levithan, The Realm of Possibility (via larmoyante)
