a friend to run to
  • historiful:

    Do not be so bloody vulnerable. To hell with God damned “L’Amour.” It always causes far more trouble than it is worth. Don’t run after it. Don’t court it. Keep it waiting off stage until you’re good and ready for it and even then treat it with the suspicious disdain that it deserves […] I am sick to death of you waiting about in empty houses and apartments with your ears strained for the telephone to ring. Snap out of it, girl! [Living] does not consist of staring in at other people’s windows and waiting for crumbs to be thrown to you. You’ve carried on this hole in corner, overcharged, romantic, unrealistic nonsense long enough…”

    -Noël Coward, in a letter to Marlene Dietrich, c. 1956.

    Actress Marlene Dietrich (1901-1992), in Morocco, 1930.

  • Thank you everyone for my beautiful birthday messages. They mean the world. I’m at End of the Road with the best beautiful people, and the best beautiful music. Already cried twice so far (birthday presents and Arc Iris), and there’s British Sea Power, Perfume Genius and John Grant to look forward to. Being 40 is incredible, I’m going to absolutely DEVOUR this decade xxx
