The island known as the “island of madness”, “hell” and “the most haunted place on Earth” is being sold!
Here’s a quick, history behind it:
The plagued people were shipped off to Poveglia Island, a small, secluded land mass that floats between Venice and Lido. There, people lived out the last of their wretched lives together until they died.
 Since the island already reeked of death, the next time an epidemic came along, barely alive bodies were dumped there and burned in mass graves.
 In the 20s, a mental hospital was built to welcome the island’s newest “guests,” or anybody that showed symptoms of any sort of sickness, physical or mental.
 Basically, if you had an itch, away you went to Poveglia where you’d sink your feet into the soil (half dirt, half human ash) and be in the company of over 100K diseased ghosts. 
It didn’t help when the place was converted into a hospital for the mentally ill in 1922. Rumor has it, the hospital was home to a number of crude lobotomies, performed by a doctor who’d been driven mad by the ghosts. He later flung himself off the bell tower.
The Italian government is now offering a 99-year lease to whomever’s brave enough to take it over. The italian government thinks it would make a great hotel destination!

— Fernando Pessoa (via blackestdespondency)
"What if I slept a little more and forgot about all this nonsense."
— Franz Kafka (via blackestdespondency)
"All suffering originates from craving, from attachment, from desire."

"I always endowed madness with a sacred, poetic value, a mystical value. It seemed to me to be a denial of ordinary life, an effort to transcend it, expand, to go far before the limitations of the human condition."
Anaïs Nin (via c-ovet)

"In cases of depression, the awareness of death’s immanence in life creates an atmosphere of constant dissatisfaction and restlessness that can never be appeased."
— Emil Cioran, On the Heights of Despair (via blacktout)
"We’ve all become estranged from life, we’re all cripples, everyone one of us, more or less. We’ve become so estranged that at times we feel some kind of revulsion for genuine “real life,” and therefore we can’t bear to be reminded of it. Why, we’ve reached a point where we almost regard “real life,” as hard work, as a job, and we’ve all agreed in private that it’s really better in books."
— Fyodor Dostoevsky Blackest Despondency (via emotionalelixir)
"What’s it say about life, hmm? You gotta get together, tell yourself stories that violate every law of the universe, just to get through the goddamn day? Nah. What’s that say about your reality, Marty?"
— Rust Cohle, True Detective Blackest Despondency (via emotionalelixir)
