“I am eternally, devastatingly romantic, and I thought people would see it because ‘romantic’ doesn’t mean ‘sugary.’ It’s dark and tormented — the furor of passion, the despair of an idealism that you can’t attain.”—Catherine Breillat (via occults)
“i have no fear of losing you, for you aren’t an object of my property, or anyone else’s. i love you as you are, without attachment, without fears, without conditions, without egoism, trying not to absorb you. i love you freely because i love your freedom, as well as mine.”—anthony de mello (via femmefilth666)
“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.”—“I’m not like the other girls”, Claudia Gray
“Vali said that women are always best for pain. She always said, by the time a girl is fifteen she’s seen more blood than a guy is going to see in his whole life.”—Gianni Menichetti on Vali (via witchofpositano)
do you ever just want to gently place your hands on someones cheeks and hold their head there in your hands and looking into their eyes and then violently jerk their head on a right angle and snap their neck
I consider this to be a huge character flaw on their part, not mine, as it is known that sarcasm is my default setting. And if you don’t find it funny, you are probably just stupid, because I’m hilarious.
