"Don’t fake feelings, and don’t show interest if you don’t care and please don’t say i love you if you don’t mean it; cause someone who has a pure heart will believe, and when they do everything changes to them."

"The six Wal-Mart heirs possess more wealth than the bottom 40% of families in this country. Or, in other words, six surrealistically-rich people who say they can’t provide decent wages or benefits for their workers have more wealth than roughly 160 million other Americans combined. Much of that Wal-Mart wealth is directly attributable to the ways U.S. taxpayers subsidize the Wal-Mart labor pool, offer tax breaks, and tilt the playing field so that so much wealth flows into those few hands. Six people. Think about that, if your own head isn’t too far up your nether orifice, then think of the people and policies that created such disparity."

"Parks And Recreation is criminally underrated and one of the best ensembles on TV. They figured out how to make comedy out of people who like things, as opposed to the usual sitcom where it’s just people being awful to each other. Turns out passion can heighten things in the same way that conflict does. And that delights me."

"We often forget that we are nature. Nature is not something separate from us. So when we say that we have lost our connection to nature, we’ve lost our connection to ourselves."

It’s hard for me to put into words the level to which this quote resonates.

Oscar-winner Jennifer Lawrence was told to diet or risk her career in Hollywood, the Hunger Games star has revealed.
Interviewed in Harper’s Bazaar magazine, Lawrence said she was labelled “fat” and encouraged to lose weight by producers.
"It was just the kind of shit that actresses have to go through," said the 23-year-old winner of this year’s Oscar for best actress. "Somebody told me I was fat, that I was going to get fired if I didn’t lose a certain amount of weight.
"They brought in pictures of me where I was basically naked, and told me to use them as motivation for my diet. They thought that because of the way my career had gone, it wouldn’t still hurt me."
Lawrence said she had developed a technique for dealing with such issues after Academy recognition for her role in David O Russell comedy drama Silver Linings Playbook and box office glory for last year’s The Hunger Games. “If anybody even tries to whisper the word ‘diet, I’m like, ‘You can go fuck yourself,” she said.
She deserves a standing ovation.
I love Jennifer Lawrence so much. I hope I get to meet her and work with her someday.
"Gay people exist. There’s nothing we can do in public policy that makes more of us or less of us exist. And you guys have been arguing for a generation that public policy ought to, essentially, demean gay people as a way of expressing disapproval of the fact that we exist. But you don’t make any less of us exist. You just are arguing in favor of discrimination. And more discrimination doesn’t make straight people’s lives any better."

Wait, has anything more perfect/true ever been said?
"It’s become clear this week that objective facts of Americans’ lives — that some of us are in loving, committed relationships with someone of the same gender, or that some of us have needed an abortion at some point, or that some of us have had a racist or sexist supervisor make our lives a living hell — are still contentious. Our everyday experiences are up for debate. The burden of proof is on women and gay people and nonwhite Americans to justify their lives, to explain to those who have never felt this sort of powerlessness or discrimination that it’s very much real. Somehow that was all distilled for me when, after Wendy Davis explained in patient detail her ectopic pregnancy and her financial struggles, one of her colleagues retorted, “You know, Senator Davis, this bill really is about women’s health.” As if these things were completely unrelated. For us, they are related. They are real."

This whole piece is really beautiful and excellent.
"I think I’ve been mischaracterized a bit as a guy who gets off on his own misery. I think that misery for people that are incredibly anxious or frightened is something consistent. I think that obsession sometimes works as almost a spirituality. You know, you have a routine that your brain kind of loops around, that you call ‘home,’ but that’s usually in defense of some other part of you that’s unruly and for me I think it’s anxiety and panic and worry and dread."

"It is necessary to fall in love, if only to provide an alibi for all the random despair you are going to feel anyway."
Albert Camus (via faulknerandfieldnotes)
I need an alibi.
This is also uncomfortably relevant and true to my life currently.
