"The way to develop self-confidence is to do the things you fear and get a record of successful experiences behind you. Destiny is not a matter of chance: it is a matter of choice. It is not something to be waited for: it is something to be achieved."
— W.J. Bryan (via onlinecounsellingcollege)
"White women’s feminisms still center around equality…. Black women’s feminisms demand justice. There is a difference. One kind of feminism focuses on the policies that will help women integrate fully into the existing American system. The other recognizes the fundamental flaws in the system and seeks its complete and total transformation."

"There has never been a time without unicorns. We live forever. We are as old as the sky, old as the moon."
The Last Unicorn (1982)
This is it. This perfectly sums up the “nice guy” entitlement fuckery.
Dress up in lacy lingerie and wait for your partner to come home. Then, as they walk in, slowly undress and say “there ain’t no “Atlas,” kid. Never was. Someone in my line of work takes on a variety of aliases. Hell, once, I was even a Chinaman for six months. But you’ve been a sport, so I guess I owe you a little honesty. Name’s Frank Fontaine.”

"Be nice to yourself. It is hard to be happy when someone is being mean to you all the time."
