Don and Peggy define themselves through their work all too often, and if that work is taken away from them or eroded of meaning, they’re stuck in a world where all they can think about is how little meaning life has outside of the meaning you construct for yourself. But even that meaning collapses in the face of despair or sorrow or death. Without work to give them meaning, without each other to bounce off of, what do Don and Peggy have left? Only the knowledge that they, too, will die, and that much of their lives have been hollow attempts to fill that void.

“I’ve gone quite mad with the accepting of the overwhelming number of things I can never know, places I can never go, people I can never be.”
Sylvia Plath  (via wordsthat-speak)
“You see, until I really cracked up, at ten or eleven or twelve or whenever it was, you most certainly would have described me as, well, as full of promise. That term is loaded with irony to me now because I know how false that appearance of promise is. I know how much latent discontent and sorrow that visible determination can mask, but still I am sure that at one time there was a ruddiness in my cheeks, a beaming excitedness in my eyes that suggested so much possibility.”
Elizabeth Wurtzel, Prozac Nation

“I thought the most beautiful thing in the world must be shadow, the million moving shapes and cul-de-sacs of shadow. There was shadow in bureau drawers and closets and suitcases, and shadow under houses and trees and stones, and shadow at the back of people’s eyes and smiles, and shadow, miles and miles and miles of it, on the night side of the earth.”
Sylvia Plath, The Bell Jar (via elucipher)

The mirror is in every room in the ballet world, because ballet dancers are constantly looking at themselves, studying themselves, and maybe even judging themselves. All the time. So it was very clear to me that the mirror was a major character in this film. And the film is also about doubles. Your reflection is your double, isn’t it? So it just became a really important part of the film. And very early on we started to think of all the different types of tricks we could do with mirrors. - Darren Aronofsky

“Any person with any imagination is bound to be afraid.”

"When the night comes, the starry sky reflects on its surface like in a mirror, and you have the feeling of being in space."


When Walt finally revealed the secret of his meth manufacturing to Skyler, he created a separate world, layered on top of the existing one and nearly identical except for one crucial detail: this one contained the truth. And it was a world where he convinced her – slowly and successfully, using their children as collateral – that they had to live alone, unless she wanted to ruin everything. If she told anyone, even her closest family members, then it wouldn’t be his crimes that destroyed their family, but rather her – and her failure to conceal them. (x)
