Those who love you are not fooled by mistakes you have made, or by dark images you hold about yourself. They remember your beauty when you feel ugly; your wholeness when you are broken; your innocence when you feel guilty; and your purpose when you are confused.

Some people don’t understand the promises they’re making when they make them,” I said.

"Right, of course. But you keep the promise anyway. That’s what love is. Love is keeping the promise anyway.

 John GreenThe Fault in Our Stars (via thateverlastingsmile)

I reject the idea that love is some mysterious unconscious feeling; love should be a choice. Keeping a promise that you did not truly mean to make cannot be defined as love at all. Love is intentionally making a promise and then choosing to keep it. In the end, love is responsibility - the most beautiful responsibility I’ve ever had to shoulder.

This is the real secret of life — to be completely engaged with what you are doing in the here and now. And instead of calling it work, realize it is play.

I want to get more comfortable being uncomfortable. I want to get more confident being uncertain. I don’t want to shrink back just because something isn’t easy. I want to push back, and make more room in the area between I can’t and I can.

The main objection of rape jokes is this: The first nine times you tell it, chances are the people who hear it will know/understand that it is a joke because they inherently believe that rape is wrong. The tenth you tell it, chances are the person who hears it will take it to mean that rape is accepted by society despite his original belief because someone is joking about it. 
Personally, I lean towards the idea that if you don’t think something is right, no matter how widespread the deed is, you still shouldn’t think it is right without the proper logic. I like to believe that people are more firm on their morality.

We cannot live for ourselves alone. Our lives are connected by a thousand invisible threads, and along these sympathetic fibres, our actions run as causes and return to us as results.

Herman Melville (via itsquoted)

If you truly care about one thing, by logic, you care about everything.
