To learn and think;

To think and live;

To live and learn:

this always, with new insight, new understanding, and new love.

Sylvia Plath, lady lazarus

Lady Lazarus~Sylvia Plath


“Remember, remember, this is now, and now, and now.

Live it, feel it, cling to it.

I want to become acutely aware of all i’ve taken for granted.”

“What horrifies me most is the idea of being useless : well-educated, brilliantly promising, and fading out into an indifferent middle age”

“Here I am, a bundle of past recollections and future dreams, knotted up in a reasonably attractive bundle of flesh”

“Kiss me and you will see how important I am”

“Character is fate; and damn, I’d better work on my character”

“Go out and do something. It isn’t your room that’s a prison. It is yourself”

“I write only because there is a voice in me that will not be still”

“I deserve that, don’t I? Some sort of blazing love that I can live with”

I want so badly,Sylvia Plath

“I am afraid of getting older…I am afraid of getting married spare me from cooking three meals a day- spare me from the relentless cage of routine and rote.I want to be free…I want, I want to think, to be omniscient…I think I would like to call myself ‘The girl who wanted to be God”

“Something in me wants more, I can’t rest”

I am.

I am.

I am.

~Sylvia Plath, née October 27, 1932.
