    This deserves some serious honor.

  2. "But if these years have taught me anything it is this: you can never run away. Not ever. The only way out is in."
    Junot Díaz, “The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao (via perfect)
  3. "I’ve never been a fan of Paula Deen, and her newly revealed attitudes and beliefs have only served to embolden my distaste. I also don’t think it’s incumbent upon businesses attempting to portray themselves as open to diversity to keep a known bigot on the payroll. Nevertheless, I can’t help thinking that the way we go about trying to “fix” these kinds of outbursts is always nearsighted to the point of being inconsequential."
  4. "I think you need to fall in love with the wrong person. I think you need to fight and cry and sweat and bleed and fail. I think you need to have bad relationships and bad breakups. I think you need all of that so that when the right person and the right relationship comes along you can sigh with relief and say, “Ah yes. That is how its supposed to feel.”"
    Excerpt from “Conversations with my Mother”  (via wolfandmay)

    You might be sitting with him at the kitchen table drinking coffee from mismatched mugs and saying nothing because sometimes saying nothing is the best thing to say. He’s miles away, and you’re thinking you should take a shower or fix your hair or at least brush your teeth because you feel dirty and self-conscious. You wish the sun weren’t so bright on your face and you wish there was something other than corn flakes for breakfast so your stomach won’t start making hideous noises. You’re about to open your mouth and say something to break the silence, but he speaks first. He tilts his head slightly and says:

    “You make me really happy.”

    And you will agree he does, too.
