MOTHERFUCKERS COULDN’T GET ON WONDER WOMEN’S LEVEL
I often carry things to read
so that I will not have to look at
The plain fact is that the planet does not need more successful people. But it does desperately need more peacemakers, healers, restorers, storytellers, and lovers of every kind. It needs people who live well in their places. It needs people of moral courage willing to join the fight to make the world habitable and humane. And these qualities have little to do with success as we have defined it.
F. Scott Fitzgerald
Book Geek Quote #549(via bookgeekconfessions)
I hope you make the best of it. And I hope you see things that startle you. I hope you feel things you never felt before. I hope you meet people with a different point of view. I hope you live a life you’re proud of. If you find that you’re not, I hope you have the strength to start all over again.
