But the pleasant thing is to wake early, throw open the window, and lie reading in bed.
Edward Fitzgerald, from a letter to W. F. Pollock, May 3, 1840 (via twotonmantaray)
She had an eager mind always. She was always quick to seize upon anything that would improve her mind or her appearance. She had warmth, vitality. She had authentic magnetism…The way she listened was more eloquent than speech.
Laura (1944 Film)
