“I hope that someday, somebody wants to hold you for twenty minutes straight, and that’s all they do. They don’t pull away. They don’t look at your face. They don’t try to kiss you. All they do is wrap you up in their arms, without an ounce of selfishness in it.”—Jenna, Waitress (via ecouri)
"what’s a queen without her king?" well, historically, better
also, in the british monarchy, if a queen is on the throne, there isn’t a king. her husband is a prince. BUT if a king is on the throne, his wife is a queen. which truly shows that the country can be ruled without a king but can’t without a queen.
“We are conditioned to believe that everything is within our grasp, that they only thing between us and perfection is, well, us.”—Perfect Girls, Starving Daughters: How the Quest for Perfection is Harming Young Women (Courtney Martin)
