Live, Love, Say It Well.

Ryan Sheffield's collection of writers' quotes on Etsy is so rich and well-curated, I had a hard time narrowing down my favorites. I love Nabokov's line about a scientific imagination, and Bukowski's thoughts on art and tacos, but the best of the best might be this one from Denis Johnson, whose book Jesus' Son I read last summer and loved: "English words are like prisms. Empty, nothing inside, and still they make rainbows."

See more and purchase prints from Ryan Sheffield on Etsy. Visit Sheffield's website, here.

Bukowski is my favorite! I wish I could've met him. I have a thing for older people who are assholes. And I mean that as a compliment.

The F. Scott Fitzgerald one is perfect, and just what I needed to hear today!

Charles Bukowski is my favourite.

I should most certainly be buying less tacos and more art. But I love tacos so much!!

Thanks a million for your lovely comments yesterday. Touched me.
