its so easy to be nice i have trouble understanding why so many people aren’t
Letting everyone down would be my greatest unhappiness.
We should teach young boys to respect women, but we should also teach young girls to respect women. Women should not see each other as enemies, but as allies. Stop telling young girls that the best they can be is “not like other girls”.
The Velvet Underground - Poster 1968
"I have often have wondered what kind of a person I would be today if I did not have these enormous guilts — if everything had gone easily and I had not made such horrific mistakes. I think I would have been the most awful, pontifical goody two shoes. I was really so smug, so sweet, so good, so spoiled — so intolerant of anybody else’s downfall. But tragedy, mistakes, and shame for your mistakes cannot leave you untouched. All the superficial things that one gave so much value to before — money, luxury, indulging in whims — calamity makes them seem so incidental. I swear to God I’d be just as happy living with Richard and the kids in a shack. And I treat the happiness I have now with great respect, great appreciation, because I know how fragile and precarious it is — how easily it can go."
— Elizabeth Taylor
man this has been the worst life of my life
I won’t do what you told me, I won’t do what you said.
No I’m not gonna stop feeling, i’m not gonna forget it.
I don’t want to start over, I don’t want to pretend that you’re not my lover, that you’re only my friend

"Some people have been unkind. If I say I want to grow as an actress, they look at my figure. If I say I want to develop, to learn my craft, they laugh. Somehow they don’t expect me to be serious about my work." - Marilyn Monroe
