"I tell my students, ‘When you get these jobs that you have been so brilliantly trained for, just remember that your real job is that if you are free, you need to free somebody else. If you have some power, then your job is to empower somebody else. This is not just a grab-bag candy game.’"
Toni Morrison (via ethiopienne)

it is crucial to believe and respect girls when they say a guy is giving them bad vibes even if they don’t give you a reason why
"Your voice sounds completely different in different languages. It alters your personality somehow. I don’t think people get the same feeling from you. The rhythm changes. Because the rhythm of the language is different, it changes your inner rhythm and that changes how you process everything.

When I hear myself speak French, I look at myself differently. Certain aspects will feel closer to the way I feel or the way I am and others won’t. I like that—to tour different sides of yourself. I often find when looking at people who are comfortable in many languages, they’re more comfortable talking about emotional stuff in a certain language or political stuff in another and that’s really interesting, how people relate to those languages."
Francois Arnaud for Interview Magazine (via iraplastic)
"What is it all for, this poetry,
This bundle of accomplishment
Put together with so much pain?"
Kenneth Rexroth, from “August 22, 1939” (via litverve)

worry abt fucking up to the point that i am so stressed that i inevitably fuck something up, validating my initial fear that i will fuck up and providing additional basis for future fears abt fucking things up. repeat ad infinitum.
