Karen Obas liked a quote
The Prophet by Kahlil Gibran
“Let there be spaces in your togetherness, And let the winds of the heavens dance between you. Love one another but make not a bond of love: Let it rather be a moving sea between the shores of your souls. Fill each other's cup but drink not from one cup. Give one another of your bread but eat not from the same loaf. Sing and dance together and be joyous, but let each one of you be alone, Even as the strings of a lute are alone though they quiver with the same music. Give your hearts, but not into each other's keeping. For only the hand of Life can contain your hearts. And stand together, yet not too near together: For the pillars of the temple stand apart, And the oak tree and the cypress grow not in each other's shadow.”
Kahlil Gibran

“Never be bullied into silence. Never allow yourself to be made a victim. Accept no one's definition of your life, but define yourself.”

Clarissa Pinkola Estés
“It makes utter sense to stay healthy and strong, to be as nourishing to the body as possible. Yet I would have to agree, there is in many women a 'hungry' one inside. But rather than hungry to be a certain size, shape, or height, rather than hungry to fit the stereotype; women are hungry for basic regard from the culture surrounding them. The 'hungry' one inside is longing to be treated respectfully, to be accepted and in the very least, to be met without stereotyping.”
Clarissa Pinkola Estés, Women Who Run With the Wolves: Myths and Stories of the Wild Woman Archetype

“What we wait around a lifetime for with one person, we can find in a moment with someone else.”
Stephanie Klein, Straight Up and Dirty: A Memoir

Euripides
“This is slavery, not to speak one's thought.”
Euripides, The Phoenician Women

Stephenie Meyer
“Forbidden to remember, terrified to forget; it was a hard line to walk.”
Stephenie Meyer, New Moon

“When a man gives his opinion, he's a man. When a woman gives her opinion, she's a bitch.”
Bette Davis
