Jane Birkin and Serge Gainsbourg (1971)
I hope you make the best of it. And I hope you see things that startle you. I hope you feel things you never felt before. I hope you meet people with a different point of view. I hope you live a life you’re proud of. If you find that you’re not, I hope you have the strength to start all over again.
F. Scott Fitzgerald

The summer demands and takes away too much. But night, the reserved, the reticent, gives more than it takes.

…I thot I was loving you — If I wasnt I never could and never would love any one. Guess I was thinking too much about how I didn’t want you to go — Don’t you believe I love you? …I didn’t want to kiss you goodbye — that was the trouble — I wanted to kiss you good night — and there’s a lot of difference.
— Ernest Hemingway, A Moveable Feat (via wordsnquotes)
