Burned Knees

(Source: spdabga, via alerioon)

I keep trying to convey something which cannot be conveyed, to explain something which cannot be explained, something in my bones, which can only be experienced in the same bones. In essence it might be nothing more than that fear of the greatest things as well as the smallest, fear, convulsive fear of pronouncing a single word. On the other hand, maybe this fear isn’t simply fear, but also longing for something greater than anything that can aspire fear. Only I am at fault, because there is too little truth on my part, still far too little truth, still mostly lies, lies told out of fear of myself and fear of people. This pitcher was broken long before it went to the well. And now I am keeping my mouth shut in order to stick with the truth a little. Lying is horrible, there is no worse mental agony. Therefore I beg you: let me be silent. by Franz Kafka, Letters To Milena (via internato)

historyofromanovs:

Grand Duchess Tatiana Nikolaevna of Russia in bed with her mother Empress Alexandra Feodorovna and brother Tsarevich Alexei by her side. During the grand celebrations of the Romanov Tercentenary in 1913, Grand Duchess Tatiana fell ill with the Typhoid fever after she drank contaminated water. Tatiana spent several weeks in bed and as Tatiana’s hair was cut short, she had to wear uncomfortable wigs for official occasions and formal photoshoots.
