    The least that can be demanded is, that the question should not be considered as prejudged by existing fact and existing opinion, but open to discussion on its merits, as a question of justice and expediency: the decision on this, as on any of the other social arrangements of mankind, depending on what an enlightened estimate of tendencies and consequences may show to be most advantageous to humanity in general, without distinction of sex. And the discussion must be a real discussion, descending to foundations, and not resting satisfied with vague and general assertions. It will not do, for instance to assert in general terms, that the experience of mankind has pronounced in favour of the existing system. Experience cannot possibly have decided between two courses, so long as there has only been experience of one.

    John Stuart Mill

    "To be popular, one must be a mediocrity." - Oscar Wilde
    You hem me in -- behind and before;
    you have laid your hand upon me.
    Such knowledge is too wonderful for me,
    too lofty for me to attain.

    "Me? I'm dishonest, and a dishonest man you can always trust to be dishonest. Honestly. It's the honest ones you want to watch out for, because you can never predict when they're going to do something incredibly... stupid." - Jack Sparrow

    The sun is a thief: she lures the sea
    and robs it. The moon is a thief:
    he steals his silvery light from the sun.
    The sea is a thief: it dissolves the moon.

    -Nabokov, Vladimir. “Pale Fire
    Night is another candle

    "She was the most brilliant person I have ever known in every sense of that word."

    "I want to do with you, what Spring does with the cherry trees."

    "If you ask me where I have been
    I have to say “it happens.”
    I have to speak of ground darkened by stones,
    of the river that enduring destroys itself:
    I know only the things that birds lose,
    the sea left behind, or my tearful sister.
    Why so many regions, why does one day
    attach to another? Why does a black night
    accumulate in one’s mouth? Why the dead?
    If you ask me from where I come, I have to converse with
    broken things,
    with deeply-embittered utensils,
    with great beasts often rotted
    and with my own anguished heart."

    "Someday, somewhere - anywhere, unfailingly, you'll find yourself, and that, and only that, can be the happiest or bitterest hour of your life."

    "I love you without knowing how, or when, or from where.
    I love you straightforwardly, without complexities or pride;
    so I love you because I know no other way..."

    ~ Neruda <3

    I love the power behind the words of this young poet. She's fierce and unapologetic about it.

    Warsan Shire

    "My alone feels so good, I'll only have you if you're sweeter than my solitude."

    "You want me to be a tragic backdrop so that you can appear to be illuminated, so that people can say ‘Wow, isn’t he so terribly brave to love a girl who is so obviously sad?’ You think I’ll be the dark sky so you can be the star? I’ll swallow you whole.”


    "Your daughter is ugly.
    She knows loss intimately,
    carries whole cities in her belly.

    As a child, relatives wouldn’t hold her.
    She was splintered wood and sea water.
    They said she reminded them of the war.

    On her fifteenth birthday you taught her
    how to tie her hair like rope
    and smoke it over burning frankincense.

    You made her gargle rosewater
    and while she coughed, said
    macaanto girls like you shouldn’t smell
    of lonely or empty.

    You are her mother.
    Why did you not warn her,
    hold her like a rotting boat
    and tell her that men will not love her
    if she is covered in continents,
    if her teeth are small colonies,
    if her stomach is an island
    if her thighs are borders?

    What man wants to lay down
    and watch the world burn
    in his bedroom?

    Your daughter’s face is a small riot,
    her hands are a civil war,
    a refugee camp behind each ear,
    a body littered with ugly things

    but God,
    doesn’t she wear
    the world well."

    I highly recommend her book, "Teaching My Mother How to Give Birth".

    "I desire the things that will destroy me in the end."

    "Why can’t I try on different lives, like dresses, to see which one fits me and is most becoming?"

    "I didn’t want any flowers, I only wanted
    to lie with my hands turned up and be utterly empty.
    How free it is, you have no idea how free."
    "I am so clever that sometimes I don't understand a single word of what I am saying."
    -Oscar Wilde
