“Take the time to make some sense for what you wanna say,
And cast your words away upon the waves.

Sail them home with acquiesce on a ship of hope today,
And as they land upon the shore,
Tell them not to fear no more.

I'm not saying right is wrong,
It's up to us to make the best of all the things that come our way.

Cos' everything that's been has past,
The answers in the looking glass.
There's four and twenty million doors
On life's endless corridor,

So say it loud and sing it proud today.”
Noel Gallagher

“I don't know if you realise how you speak to people sometimes, the way you feed people table scraps. I know that's that what I get from you, table scraps, but because it's scraps from your table, it's better than a 3 course meal with someone else. And you've given me glimpses into your life, your real life, and I wonder if it's your fault. I wonder if you've got anything but scraps to give.”

Taylor Jenkins Reid
“Nina continued staring at Carrie but didn’t say anything. How was it that this woman could shout out every thought running through her head? Why was it that Carrie Soto felt so entitled to scream?
In that moment, Nina was not mad or jealous or embarrassed or anything else she might have expected. Nina was sad. Sad that she’d never lived a fraction of a second like Carrie Soto. What a world she must live in, Nina thought, where you can piss and moan and stomp your feet and cry in public and yell at the people who hurt you. That you can dictate what you will and will not accept.
Nina, her entire life, had been programmed to accept. Accept that your father left. Accept that your mother is gone. Accept that you must take care of your siblings. Accept that the world wants to lust after you. Accept accept accept. For so long, Nina believed it was her greatest strength - that she could withstand, that she could endure, that she would accept it all and keep going. It was so foreign to her, the idea of declaring that something was unacceptable.
Nina thought of herself driving to someone else’s house to scream on their front lawn while a whole party’s worth of people watched. It was so impossible that she couldn’t even summon a mental picture.
But Carrie had this fire within her. Where was Nina’s fire? Had it ever been there? And if so, when did it go out?
Her husband had slept with Carrie last night and then Nina had taken him back this evening. What was wrong with her? Was she just going to accept it all? Just accept every piece of bullshit thrown at her for the rest of her life?”
Taylor Jenkins Reid, Malibu Rising

“Scared of what people will think if you speak up?

Fear of being wrong is likely the fear of other people's judgement, which is actually your own self-judgement.

Can you love yourself even when you fail?
Can you have the courage to be wrong in the process of learning?”
Benjamin Brown
