“In one way or another I’ve always suffered. I didn’t know why exactly. But I do know that I’m not so scared of suffering now. I feel more than I’ve ever felt, and I’ve found someone to feel with. To play with. To love in a way that feels right for me. I hope he knows that I can see that he suffers too. And that I want to love him.”
— Lee Holloway, Secretary (2002)

“The person who tries to live alone will not succeed as a human being. His heart withers if it does not answer another heart. His mind shrinks away if he hears only the echoes of his own thoughts and finds no other inspiration.”
— Pearl S. Buck

“Closed-mindness is a disease that judgmental people suffer from. Closed-mindness is having no tolerance for anyones opinion or beliefs other than your own. It is caused by creating irrational boundaries in your mind of what is acceptable and what is not. The most common symptoms are a skewed perspective on life, caring too much about things that do not affect them, and ignorance that is sometimes followed by assumptions. Being close-minded denies the idea of inner beauty by only focusing on the exterior surface of others in comparison to their superficial false standards of what is adequate. They are blind to seeing the beauty in everything and everyone due to their lack of understanding that beauty is subjective (meaning that the definition of beautiful or handsome is undefinable and that it varies from one person to another.) And because of their presumptuous nature, they are so entirely convinced that their opinions are indeed facts that it leads them to feel compelled to verbally attack anyone who does not meet their standards or disagrees with them even if it is unnecessary and serves no purpose. But what they have always failed to ever consider is their own ugly behavior.”

“Don’t you dare
Shrink yourself
For someone else’s comfort -
Do not become small
For people who refuse to grow.”

“Cultivate the habit of being grateful for every good thing that comes to you, and to give thanks continuously. And because all things have contributed to your advancement, you should include all things in your gratitude.”
— Ralph Waldo Emerson

“When they ask me about my future wife, I always tell them that her eyes are the only Christmas lights that deserve to be seen all year long. I tell them that she has a walk that can make an atheist believe in God just long enough to say, ‘God damn’. I tell them that if my alarm clock sounded like her voice, my snooze button would collect dust. I tell them that if she came in a bottle, I would drink her until my vision is blurry and my friends take away my keys. I tell them that if she was a book, I would memorize her table of contents. I would read her, cover to cover, hoping to find typos, just so we could both have something to work on, because aren’t we all unfinished?”
— Rudy Francisco, A Lot Like You

I think all women go through periods where we hate this about ourselves, we don’t like that. It’s great to get to a place where you dismiss anything you’re worried about. I find flaws attractive. I find scars attractive.

My grandpa has Alzheimer’s so he has no idea who my grandma is but everyday for the last three or four months he brings her in flowers from their garden and asks her to run away with him and be his wife and everyday she says she already is and everyday the smile my grandpa gets on his face is the most beautiful heartfelt thing I have ever seen.
