Theme by Themes that you like

My mind, it wanders


My favorite quotes are always able to say more about me, my feelings and thoughts than I can ever properly articulate. So here are the collective quotes that have meaning in my life for one reason or another.

Enjoy and have a happy day :) xx

“Maybe our favorite quotations say more about us than about the stories and people we’re quoting.” -John Green

"When I was in college, a teacher once said that all women live by a ‘rape schedule.’ I was baffled by the term, but as she went on to explain, I got really freaked out. Because I realized that I knew exactly what she was talking about. And you do too. Because of their constant fear of rape (conscious or not), women do things throughout the day to protect themselves. Whether it’s carrying our keys in our hands as we walk home, locking our car doors as soon as we get in, or not walking down certain streets, we take precautions. While taking precautions is certainly not a bad idea, the fact that certain things women do are so ingrained into our daily routines is truly disturbing. It’s essentially like living in a prison - all the time. We can’t assume that we’re safe anywhere: not on the streets, not in our homes. And we’re so used to feeling unsafe that we don’t even see that there’s something seriously fucked up about it."
