"When a thing disturbs the peace of your heart, give it up.” — Prophet Muhammad

For a rape victim, this is more difficult than it seems. A boy invited me inside the other night, knowing what he wanted. i said no to him. i said i wanted to leave. it is the single proudest, most confident moment of my life.

"Apparently making it funny makes it okay."

"Besides, it is not only time
that ages us. Though years
can write upon our skin
            with unseen knives,

some things must be stolen to be lost."

— Sean Patrick Mulroy, from “picture of a lover at 19,” Nailed (April 9, 2013)

"Maybe I’m getting tired – I can’t think of anything but nights with you. I want them warm and silvery."

— Zelda Fitzgerald, “Letter to F. Scott Fitzgerald,” May 1919wordsnquotes)

"Women are described in animal terms as pets, cows, sows, foxes, chicks, serpents, bitches, beavers, old bats, old hens, mother hens, pussycats, cats, cheetahs, bird-brains, and hare-brains…‘Mother Nature’ is raped, mastered, conquered, mined; her secrets are ‘penetrated,’ her ‘womb’ is to be put into the service of the ‘man of science.’ Virgin timber is felled, cut down; fertile soil is tilled, and land that lies ‘fallow’ is ‘barren,’ useless. The exploitation of nature and animals is justified by feminizing them; the exploitation of women is justified by naturalizing them."

"Are you angry? Punch a pillow. Was it satisfying? Not hardly. These days people are too angry for punching. What you might try is stabbing. Take an old pillow and lay it on the front lawn. Stab it with a big pointy knife. Again and again and again. Stab hard enough for the point of the knife to go into the ground. Stab until the pillow is gone and you are just stabbing the earth again and again, as if you want to kill it for continuing to spin, as if you are getting revenge for having to live in this planet day after day, alone."

— Miranda July (via fuckbitches-getpickklez)
