F. Scott Fitzgerald | Beautiful Words + Lovely Photos

“I hope she'll be a fool -- that's the best thing a
girl can be in this world, a beautiful little fool.”
― F. Scott Fitzgerald, The Great Gatsby

“I fell in love with her courage, her sincerity, and her flaming self respect.
And it's these things I'd believe in, even if the whole world indulged in wild suspicions
that she wasn't all she should be. I love her and it is the beginning of everything.”
― F. Scott Fitzgerald

“That is part of the beauty of all literature. You discover that your longings are
universal longings, that you're not lonely and isolated from anyone. You belong.”
― F. Scott Fitzgerald

“I don't want to repeat my innocence.
I want the pleasure of losing it again.”
― F. Scott Fitzgerald, This Side of Paradise 

“They slipped briskly into an intimacy from which they never recovered.”
― F. Scott Fitzgerald, This Side of Paradise 

Sometimes I just feel like posting some lovely words accompanied by lovely pictures.  There are truly few words more beautiful than those of F. Scott Fitzgerald.  This Side of Paradise is at the top of my to-read list.  So I sprinkled in a few of my all-time favorite quotes from the writer among some gorgeous 1920s-inspired photos.  

Photography by Julia Galdo, in collaboration with Cody Cloud and David Tolls.  Enjoy the rest of the photos here.  

By the way, have you heard about the upcoming film The Great Gatsby starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Carey Mulligan, and Tobey Maguire?  I absolutely can't wait.
