Dear Future: Some things to remember me by.
"I’m left with nothing but this strange beating in my heart that tells me I’m meant to do something in this world."
The Invention of Wings (via lyriclikeasong)
"I saw then what I hadn’t seen before, that I was very good at despising slavery in the abstract, in the removed and anonymous masses, but in the concrete, intimate flesh of the girl beside me, I’d lost the ability to be repulsed by it. I’d grown comfortable with the particulars of evil. There’s a frightful muteness that dwells at the center of all unspeakable things, and I had found my way into it."
Sue Monk Kidd, The Invention of Wings (via quoted-books)
"For a moment I felt the quiet hungering thing that comes inside when you return to the place of your origins, and then the ache of mis-belonging."
Sue Monk Kidd, The Invention of Wings (via quotes-shape-us)

when you really hate the fuck out of someone but you cant say shit because everyone else loves them and you know deep down in your cold dead heart that they’re a terrible person

"Even now I’m not really sure which parts of myself are real and which parts are things I’ve gotten from books."
"Because lying to your kids about sex helps nobody. Telling them that sex is “only between mommies and daddies” is a lie that leads to confused, hormone charged teenagers. Telling them that sex is “only something that happens when two people love each other very much” is a lie that causes hormone charged teenagers to confuse “love” with “lust,” or “obsession.” It leads to leaps of logic like, “If I have sex with them, we must be in love.” Or worse- “If I love them, I have to have sex with them.” And how many teenage tragedies are based on that misconception?"
"News broke yesterday that nude photos of Jennifer Lawrence had been “leaked” online. The truth is they were stolen. They were hacked from her personal technology. They were posted online without her consent. This is a crime. And possibly worst of all, this is something women are supposed to expect… We live in a society where women’s bodies are a commodity to be sold, whether they agree to it or not. And some of the same people who complain about the NSA or Facebook invading their personal privacy will be the same people searching and spreading around these photos."

Any time you can have perspective about what you have in your life and what you can give, that’s good for your mind and soul. That rush, feeling like I’m doing something besides looking at my phone, or worrying about the next job, or complaining about traffic — that can give you a lot of gratitude

thank you Bathtub Barracuda.
