"Have patience with everything that remains unsolved in your heart. Try to love the questions themselves, like locked rooms and like books written in a foreign language. Do not now look for the answers. They cannot now be given to you because you could not live them. It is a question of experiencing everything. At present you need to live the question. Perhaps you will gradually, without even noticing it, find yourself experiencing the answer, some distant day."
Rainer Maria Rilke, Letters to a Young Poet
Needed this today.
Regardless of whether you watch Scandal or not, everyone needs to watch this and see Lisa Kudrow fucking nail her scene exploiting misogyny and sexism.
I’m pretty sure that just changed my life.
Don’t interrupt me when I’m speaking.
Shit. I need to catch up
uhhhhhh i don’t even watch this show. and now i know why everyone tells me i should.
"As far as I can recall, none of the adults in my life ever once remembered to say, ‘Some people have thick skin and you don’t. Your heart is really open and that is going to cause you pain, but that is an appropriate response to this world. The cost is high, but the blessing of being compassionate is beyond your wildest dreams. However, you’re not going to feel that a lot in seventh grade. Just hang on.’"

Holy shit! Wendy Davis literally cannot say anything on twitter without someone saying something about abortion.
Woooow. Can people, like, not bring up abortion at times where it’s irrelevant? Cause that would be nice.
This is of course horrible. Really horrible. But also, as a rape survivor, I can’t help but keep reading that first tweet of hers, so unbelievably amazing!
