Maria liked a quote
2156
I do not think I ever opened a book in my life which had not something to say upon woman's inconstancy. Songs and proverbs, all talk of woman's fickleness. But perhaps you will say, these were all written by men."

"Perhaps I shall. Yes, yes, if you please, no reference to examples in books. Men have had every advantage of us in telling their own story. Education has been theirs in so much higher a degree; the pen has been in their hands. I will not allow books to prove anything.
Jane Austen

She seems so cool, so focused, so quiet, yet her eyes remain fixed upon the horizon. You think you know all there is to know about her immediately upon meeting her, but everything you think you know is wrong. Passion flows through her like a river of blood.

She only looked away for a moment, and the mask slipped, and you fell. All your tomorrows start here.
Neil Gaiman

Diana Vreeland
“You don't have to be pretty. You don't owe prettiness to anyone: not your boyfriend/spouse/partner, not your coworkers, especially not random men on the street. You don't owe it to your mother; you don't owe it to your children. You don't owe it to civilization in general. Prettiness is not a rent you pay for occupying a space marked "female.”
Diana Vreeland

Rumi
“I closed my mouth and spoke to you in a hundred silent ways.”
Rumi

Anne Morrow Lindbergh
“The most exhausting thing in life, I have discovered, is being insincere.”
Anne Morrow Lindbergh, Gift from the Sea

Charlotte Brontë
“Jane Eyre, who had been an ardent, expectant woman — almost a bride, was a cold, solitary girl again: her life was pale; her prospects were desolate.”
Charlotte Brontë, Jane Eyre

Albert Einstein
“Those who have the privilege to know have the duty to act.”
Albert Einstein
