Welcome back to Tuesday's Takeaways!
This week the Top Quotes' theme is lies!
"Heaven is hopeless
And hidden from view
And I don’t know
How to help it
Because I’ve been a sinner
For as long as I’ve known
Tastes good on the tongue"
"Purple prose flees my fingers but it is only running away from the white whispers in my head.
The lies of my dreams, the exodus of rationality"
-Mic Braun, Purple Prose
"I don’t believe a single phrase that falls from those beautiful lips."
-Tonsor Mal, Be Patient
"My forked tongue slips between my teeth to turn a calculated cacophony into honey along my berry-boisterous lips
. . .
My forked tongue spits into my mirrored face as I whisper with false sincerity,
That I am the most luminous star
I know I am a soiled girl."
-Samantha Paucar, Nice Enough Girl and Her Cheap Tears
It's their pupils! It's a widespread belief is that liars have shifty eyes, but that's actually not true. When a person is lying their pupils will dilate!
Next week's theme is going to be about flowers.
Make sure to stay tuned! <3
