“For one, abortion is a delicate issue. It’s a very hard thing to talk about. No one wants to get an abortion, nobody looks forward to making a difficult to decision like that. Another myth from the right is that people have frivolous abortions. I know a lot of people who have needed an abortion, and I don’t know a one who was like, “Oh yeah, at 2:00, I have my abortion; at 3:00, I want to play tennis.” It’s not any more fun than any surgically invasive procedure—it’s not something you choose lightly. And we have allowed them to perpetuate some myths, plus they’re really good at framing the dialogue, especially because being against anything is easy: Just demonize it and frame it and boom! Everyone who hears your demonization will probably share a little bit of your feeling. It’s harder to explain what it is you’re for when you say you’re for reproductive rights. But we did start using terms like “reproductive rights” and being careful about using “abortion” because it turns people off, and that’s a mistake. When we are talking about reproductive rights, we are talking about a woman’s right to have an abortion. We ought to own that word instead of trying to table it because it makes people feel uncomfortable.”—John Darnielle in an interview with Mother Jones
“If your inner being changes, your whole outer life will be totally different. It will have a different fragrance, a different beauty, a different grace. And when your inner being is changed and becomes a flame of light, you will become a light unto others too. You will become a beckoning light, a great herald of a new dawn. Your very presence will trigger revolutions in other people’s lives.”—Osho
“There are only two questions that human beings have ever fought over, all through history. ‘How much do you love me?’ And, ‘Who’s in charge?’ Everything else is somehow manageable. But these two questions of love and control undo us all, trip us up and cause war, grief, and suffering.”—Elizabeth Gilbert, Eat, Pray, Love (via llibre)

“But James (Franco) is a lovely guy and incredibly gorgeous. My girlfriend was swooning over him. I was swooning over him too! It’s very hard not to. He’s one of those guys who is annoying because he turns up in a trampy cardigan and some old trousers and looks all the more good looking in it.”—Tom Felton (via living-death)
