"The beauty of a living thing is not the atoms that go into it, but the way those atoms are put together."


"One day I just woke up and realized that I can’t touch yesterday. So why the heck was I letting it touch me?"


"Yes I do enjoy walking at night. The world’s a lot more to my liking then, not so loud, not so fast, not so crowed, and a great deal more mysterious"


"Yesterday I was clever, so I wanted to change the world. Today I am wise, so I am changing myself."


"There is nothing noble in being superior to your fellow man; true nobility is being superior to your former self."


"And in the end, we were all just humans… drunk on the idea that love, only love, could heal our brokenness."


"There are two basic motivating forces: fear and love. When we are afraid, we pull back from life. When we are in love, we open to all that life has to offer with passion, excitement, and acceptance. We need to learn to love ourselves first, in all our glory and our imperfections. If we cannot love ourselves, we cannot fully open to our ability to love others or our potential to create. Evolution and all hopes for a better world rest in the fearlessness and open-hearted vision of people who embrace life."


"Collective movements for social justice do not gain traction through niceness. American women did not gain the right to vote by skipping down Pennsylvania Avenue while whistling cute songs about suffrage: they picketed, they marched, they yelled, they were arrested. Abusive partners and rapists will not be stopped by women having heart-to-hearts with their violators over coffee, because ghosts cannot talk and broken fingers cannot lift a latte. The patriarchy cannot be shattered by good vibes. In order to bring about change, old and oppressive structures must be destroyed. Destruction is not negative if what will grow from the rubble is something that will create a safer, healthier, stronger society."

“because ghosts cannot talk” i got shivers. yes. all of this. (via foxtrotsky)

I think more can be learned from Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. in the sense of peaceful protests, because this will only make people hate your movement more than a peaceful protest ever could.
