wishes

i'm not really a horse person, but this book has always been one of my favorites.


{after all, cormac mccarthy is one of the best authors of all time}

and this passage has always stuck with me:



"between the wish and the thing, the world lies waiting"
- alfonso in all the pretty horses by cormac mccarthy

  6. You have an incredible eye for quotes if you picked that one out of a book.

    I suppose I'm wishing for the good I have right now to last forever.
