“Let's be reasonable and add an eighth day to the week that is devoted exclusively to reading.”
Lena Dunham

“When someone shows you how little you mean to them and you keep coming back for more, before you know it you start to mean less to yourself. You are not made up of compartments! You are one whole person! What gets said to you gets said to all of you, ditto what gets done. Being treated like shit is not an amusing game or a transgressive intellectual experiment. It’s something you accept, condone, and learn to believe you deserve. This is so simple. But I tried so hard to make it complicated.”
Lena Dunham, Not That Kind of Girl: A Young Woman Tells You What She's "Learned"

“You will find,” she says, “that there’s a certain grace to having your heart broken.”
Lena Dunham, Not That Kind of Girl: A Young Woman Tells You What She's "Learned"
