The best part about that MTV reality show “Are you the one?” is that all the characters keep talking about how it’s AH-MAZING that matchmakers were able to find their soul mates but not a single person hangs out with each other after the show.
ZOMGS YOU GUYS.
"No relationship is ever a waste of your time. If it didn’t bring you what you want, it taught you what you didn’t want."
all i’m saying is if an all-girls school crashed on the island in lord of the flies then they would’ve been off the island in a week
lord of the flies doesnt show the base human condition, it shows the base privileged straight white male condition, incredibly when i point this out people get kind of annoyed
So if we have to show women what the baby looks like in their womb and tell them how the process works before allowing them to get an abortion, does that mean we should teach our soldiers about the culture of the lands we’re invading, and explain to them that the people we want them to kill have families and feel pain, just like Americans?
I have known many graduates of Bryn Mawr. They are all of the same mold. They have all accepted the same bright challenge: something is lost that has not been found, something’s at stake that has not been won, something is started that has not been finished, something is dimly felt that has not been fully realized. They carry the distinguishing mark – the mark that separates them from other educated and superior women: the incredible vigor, the subtlety of mind, the warmth of spirit, the aspiration, the fidelity to past and to present… What is there about these women that makes them so dangerous, so tempting? Why, it is Bryn Mawr. As they grow in years, they grow in light. As their minds and hearts expand, their deeds become more formidable, their connections more significant…I gazed on Pembroke West only once in my life, but I knew instinctively that I was looking at a pile that was to touch me far more deeply than the Taj Mahal or the George Washington Bridge.
…I once held a live hummingbird in my hand. I once married a Bryn Mawr girl. To a large extent they are twin experiences. Sometimes I feel as though I were a diver who had ventured a little beyond the limits of safe travel under the sea and had entered the strange zone where one is said to enjoy the rapture of the deep. It was William Brown who most simply and accurately described my feelings and I shall let him have the last word:
Briefly, everything doth lend her
So much grace, and so approve her,
That for everything I love her.
— E.B. White, Poems and Sketches of E. B. White, 1981
every year after you turn 17 you get further away from being the age of the dancing queen and that’s my least favorite thing about growing up
