I was always attracted not by some quantifiable, external beauty, but by something deep down, something absolute. Just as some people have a secret love for rainstorms, earthquakes, or blackouts, I liked that certain undefinable something directed my way by members of the opposite sex. For want of a better word, call it magnetism. Like it or not, it’s a kind of power that snares people and reels them in.
Haruki Murakami, South of the Border, West of the Sun (via introspectivepoet)
There will always be a part of me that is dirty and sloppy, but I like that, just like all the other parts of myself.
