There’s an opposite to déjà vu. They call it jamais vu. It’s when you meet the same people or visit places, again and again, but each time is the first. Everybody is always a stranger. Nothing is ever familiar.

Chuch Palahniuk

Two types of people who can’t look at you in the eyes:
Someone trying to hide a lie,
And someone trying to hide a love.


I don’t want your love unless you know I am repulsive, and love me even as you know it.

Georges Bataille, My Mother/Madame Edwarda/The Dead
