"You may not agree with a woman, but to criticize her appearance — as opposed to her ideas or actions — isn’t doing anyone any favors, least of all you. Insulting a woman’s looks when they have nothing to do with the issue at hand implies a lack of comprehension on your part, an inability to engage in high-level thinking. You may think she’s ugly, but everyone else thinks you’re an idiot."
"I used to build dreams about you."
-F. Scott Fitzgerald (via brxin)
"I guess it’s what Oates said: Revenge is living well, without you."
-Junot Diaz, This Is How You Lose Her p. 194
"don’t call me beautiful
i don’t care
call me intelligent
tell me my laugh is contagious;
that i made you smile
tell me i have something to offer"
"Once you lose someone, it is never exactly the same person who comes back."
-Sharon Olds, Satan Says
