“So maybe we’ll call this a hard lesson learned, but you’re holding something that I’ll need returned. If you need some time I’ve still got some to burn, but burning is just running thin. Cause we had a good time, then it was sorrow. I call it stealing, you call it borrow. So I want my heart back if you’re not gonna keep it. If you’ve got no uses, then I’m gonna need it”
“When I was five I learned to read. Books were a miracle to me - white pages, black ink, and new worlds and different friends in each one. To this day, I relish the feeling of cracking a binding for the first time, the anticipation of where I’ll go and whom I’ll meet inside.”
“We must learn to reawaken and keep ourselves awake, not by mechanical aids, but by an infinite expectation of the dawn, which does not forsake us even in our soundest sleep. I know of no more encouraging fact than the unquestionable ability of man to elevate his life by a conscious endeavour. It is something to be able to paint a particular picture, or to carve a statue, and so to make a few objects beautiful; but it is far more glorious to carve and paint the very atmosphere and medium through which we look, which morally we can do. To affect the quality of the day, that is the highest of arts.”
“I think that if I ever have kids, and they are upset, I won’t tell them that people are starving in China or anything like that because it wouldn’t change the fact that they were upset. And even if somebody else has it much worse, that doesn’t really change the fact that you have what you have.”
Love is restless, knifing, backstabbing, a contender, a thief. It makes you wait, worry, fight, scream, lie, go crazy, have anxiety. It beats you up, takes your money, and forces you to cry. Love will control you, make you want to dance, sing, create art, make something beautiful. Love brings children into this world, creates comfort to the sick, feeds the hungry, and seeks out the cold. Love drives everything you do; even if you hate something, you would not know what hate is if you did not understand love.
“She felt, in a flash of its full, violent purity, that special sense of existence which has always been hers. In a moment’s consecration to her love- to her rebellious denial of disaster, to her love of life and the matchless value that was herself- she felt the fiercely proud certainty that she would survive.”
“The aim of life is self-development. To realize one’s nature perfectly - that is what each of us is here for. People are afraid of themselves, nowadays. They have forgotten the highest of all duties, the duty that one owes to one’s self.”
I believe strongly that woman are just as capable as men in every single aspect of life. Even more capable than men at certain things. They can do anything, perform anything and pull off anything they want. They’re just as strong, smart and willing as men. They are equal to men.
I was going to make this a long and well developed post but I’m distracted now so I’m going to state my main points.
Basically, if a man ever told me to make him a sandwich, even as a joke, I would kick him so hard in the balls that he would have to go through puberty again while waiting for them to drop back down.
Women can do anything whether it’s domestic chores or politics and everything in between. Women also have just as much of a sex drive as men and using them strictly as sexual objects makes you the scum of the earth. Don’t ever tell me I can’t do something because of my gender. Don’t ever.
On the other hand though, I believe in chivalry. I don’t think it would kill any guy to pamper the woman he loves because it’s the right thing to do. I can guarantee that if I were with someone, I would go to the ends of the earth for them so I don’t think asking you to be chivalrous in a modern, simple way is much of a stress. Chivalry is class and it is slowly dying but that’s not an excuse if you really care for someone and you were raised correctly. And look at this way, as much as I am a feminist, I’m also a horny little girl and the one place I don’t mind being dominated by a man is in bed. Therefore, be chivalrous and treat me, and I’ll go down on you.
I can’t stand to listen to people who have lower opinions of women or predetermined stereotypical ideas of how women should live or behave. I almost lost it in my class today and my professor wasn’t being sexist. I’m just very opinionated and I don’t like to be denied. Do not discourage me, I will prove you wrong.
I love you because of this post. Seriously, that’s EXACTLY what I think.
