Hi. I'm Karcy and I use this Tumblr to make quick notes. My 'real' online journal is at http://karcy.livejournal.com. I like literature, manga, and the Manic Street Preachers. I'm Malaysian and feel strongly for local political and social issues. I'm also an Eastern Orthodox Christian convert, so from time to time you might get quotes from Christian mystics or theologians I enjoy.

Favourites
Writers: Dostoevsky, Pinter, Keats, Lessing
Icons: St. Catherine of Sinai, Richey Edwards, Thich Quang Duc, St. Simeon Stylites (as depicted by Tennyson)

Don’t give them any slippery stuff like philosophy or sociology to tie things up with. That way lies melancholy. Any man who can take a TV wall apart and put it back together again, and most men can nowadays, is happier than any man who tries to slide-rule, measure, and equate the universe, which just won’t be measured or equated without making man feel bestial and lonely.

Ray Bradbury, Fahrenheit 451

It’s not what’s wrong, it’s what’s right

Buzzed. Glad for it. Felt like I was talking a foreign language all day.

Most trouble in love is two people responding with panic to disappointments they don’t wholly understand.

You know you’re a Galaxy Angel fan when you order beef stroganoff at a restaurant, google up hayashi rice, and can’t help but smile to yourself.
