Be patient with me. I won’t ever be the girl with all the right words to say. Explaining how I feel is beyond difficult and it frustrates the hell out of me. I could tell you every thought inside my head and still not say everything I want to. So be patient with me because I’ll always be patient with you. And when I’m unable to tell you with my words, I’ll show you with my actions.
"My mother instilled in me that you don’t apologise for being a woman. There’s no apology in my femininity."
Lupita Nyong’o (via totalballs)
"Beware the irrational, however seductive. Shun the ‘transcendent’ and all who invite you to subordinate or annihilate yourself. Distrust compassion; prefer dignity for yourself and others. Don’t be afraid to be thought arrogant or selfish. Picture all experts as if they were mammals. Never be a spectator of unfairness or stupidity. Seek out argument and disputation for their own sake; the grave will supply plenty of time for silence. Suspect your own motives, and all excuses. Do not live for others any more than you would expect others to live for you."
