"I feel an unhappiness which almost dismembers me - and, at the same time, am convinced of its necessity…"
"I would never be part of anything. I would never really belong anywhere, and I knew it, and all my life would be the same, trying to belong, and failing. Always something would go wrong. I am a stranger and I always will be, and after all I didn’t really care."
Jean Rhys, Smile Please: An Unfinished Autobiography (via larmoyante)
