my textbook and i have a lot in common
“My captor holds the knife, but I am not afraid, I will grasp the blade.”
No one knows me or loves me completely. I have only myself.
|—||Simone de Beauvoir (via slayr)|
I remember when I was younger and I wanted to be beautiful; now I’m older and I want to be intelligent. I want to burn hearts with brilliance and engulf souls with compassion. I want to be loved for my thoughts and nothing else.
yet another unrealistic standard for women
