"Let us consider that we are all partially insane. It will explain us to each other; it will unriddle many riddles; it will make clear and simplify many things which are involved in haunting and harassing difficulties and obscurities now"
12,067 notes "That rock ‘n’ roll, eh? That rock ‘n’ roll, it just won’t go away. It might hibernate from time to time, sink back into the swap. I think the cyclical nature of the universe in which it exists demands it adheres to some of it’s rules, but it’s always waiting there just around the corner, ready, to make it’s way back through the sludge, and smash through the glass ceiling looking better than ever. Yeah that rock ‘n’ roll seems like it’s fading away sometimes, but it will never die. And there’s nothing you can do about it. Thank you very fucking much for this. I do truly appreciate it. Don’t take that the wrong way. And uh, invoice me for the microphone if you need to [drop]"
4,236 notes "We are the girls with anxiety disorders, filled appointment books, five-year plans. We take ourselves very, very seriously. We are the peacemakers, the do-gooders, the givers, the savers. We are on time, overly prepared, well read, and witty, intellectually curious, always moving… We pride ourselves on getting as little sleep as possible and thrive on self-deprivation. We drink coffee, a lot of it. We are on birth control, Prozac, and multivitamins… We are relentless, judgmental with ourselves, and forgiving to others. We never want to be as passive-aggressive as our mothers, never want to marry men as uninspired as our fathers… We are the daughters of the feminists who said, “You can be anything,” and we heard, “You have to be everything.”"
