Out, out, brief candle! Life’s but a walking shadow, a poor player that struts and frets his hour upon the stage and is heard no more. It is a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.
- William Shakespeare, Macbeth

(Exception: Felidae, for which I couldn’t find an English translation on TBD, so this is available only in German).

I’ve missed a few days of the #booksandcupcakes #bookphotochallenge, but let’s pretend I’m completely up to date // 19 pretty cover // I picked this one up at Byron yesterday entirely because of its gorgeous cover. After a skim through, I’m convinced it’s lovely inside, too. I’ll post a little review once I’m done reading // backdrop print by Lou Taylor for Frankie Magazine.

Ah, Bisexuality Day, when Freddie Mercury visits all the bisexuals who’ve been good the past year and gives them presents

Ha ha, I can’t believe you still think Freddie Mercury is real. Everybody knows it’s really your parents. 

IT IS FREDDIE. I’VE SEEN HIM! HE COMES TO YOUR HOUSE AND LEAVES YOU OSCAR WILDE BOOKS AND MARLON BRANDO MOVIES.
