"I’m homesick for arms that don’t want to hold me."
— M.O.W, A ten word story (via yoursly
Because all we really need to survive is one person who truly loves us.
"Why should I fear death? If I am, death is not. If death is. I am not. Why should I fear that which cannot exist when I do?"
"It saddens me to see girls proudly declaring they’re not like other girls – especially when it’s 41,000 girls saying it in a chorus, never recognizing the contradiction. It’s taking a form of contempt for women – even a hatred for women – and internalizing it by saying, Yes, those girls are awful, but I’m special, I’m not like that, instead of stepping back and saying, This is a lie.
The real meaning of “I’m not like the other girls” is, I think, “I’m not the media’s image of what girls should be.” Well, very, very few of us are. Pop culture wants to tell us that we’re all shallow, backstabbing, appearance-obsessed shopaholics without a thought in our heads beyond cute boys and cuter handbags. It’s a lie – a flat-out lie – and we need to recognize it and say so instead of accepting that judgment as true for other girls, but not for you."

So put me in your books so you know what it’s like to live a life not knowing what a normal life’s like. Put a label on my head so you know what it’s like to live a life not knowing what a normal life’s like. Look into my eyes so you know what it’s like. Look into my eyes so you know what it’s like. Look into my eyes so you know what it’s like to live a life not knowing what a normal life’s like.
"I’m so out of love with you. I’ve got nothing left for you, nothing, nothing. Nothing, there is nothing here for you." - Blue Valentine (2010)
"I should have abandoned Allen’s work a long time ago, I know. And I’m sorry I didn’t. We see these kinds of “signs” all the time. We just ignore them. I mean, Allen dates a high school student — 17 year old Tracy (played by Mariel Hemingway, who was actually 16 at the time) – in Manhattan for Christ’s sake. How I managed to ignore this all these years is significant. But that’s how this all goes, isn’t it. We don’t see until we can’t not see. Men’s art, men’s work, men’s power is always at the forefront — always made more visible than the women they ruin and abuse and erase on their way to the top."
