"Never, never tell them. Try and remember that. Never tell anyone anything ever. Never tell anyone anything again."
"Die Klugheit ist stärker als die Gewalt, und die Milde mächtiger als der Mord."
Wisdom is stronger than violence, and mildness more powerful than murder.
Karl May (1842 – 1912), German writer(via thatswhywelovegermany)
"To me [growing up], there was never a lexicon for ‘feminism’. I’m surrounded by strong women who are self-determining and rad. What becomes a murky, difficult territory is where people assume a victimhood. You know, I’ve had so many interviews with people looking at me with ‘Oh, you poor thing’ eyes. ‘Oh, you know, it must be so hard for you.’ I’m going, are you kidding me? I’m my own boss. I travel the world. ‘Oh, you poor thing’? I’m not a victim. It’s tricky territory, I think, because I was never raised to see myself in that regard. I was raised to be self-actualising."

"Autumn finally arrived. And when it did, I came to a decision. Something had to give: I couldn’t keep on living like this."
Haruki Murakami, South of the Border, West of the Sun (via quotes-shape-us)
