When my insurance agent asked why I’ve totaled yet another car…
When my friend gets back with her ex
“I am a woman with thoughts and questions and shit to say. I say if I’m beautiful. I say if I’m strong. You will not determine my story—I will. I will speak and share and fuck and love and I will never apologize to the frightened millions who resent that they never had it in them to do it. I stand here and I amazing, for you. Not because of you. I am not who I sleep with. I am not my weight. I am not my mother. I am myself. And I am all of you, and I thank you.”
“The most important thing, married or single, is that you can’t compare your life to overly simplified fantasy figures on TV, in movies, or in magazines. Every human being is unique. Every relationship is unique. If you’re in it, it’s your job to find out what’s unique about it. I don’t think you should be in a relationship and downgrade it because it doesn’t look the same as some Hollywood image.”
“We as women are trained to see ourselves as cheap imitations of fashion photographs, rather than seeing fashion photographs as cheap imitations of women.”
““I said to the sun, “Tell me about the big bang.” The sun said, “It hurts to become.””
When my parents ask why I’m not dating….
“The price of anything is the amount of life you exchange for it.”
