"Wait for someone who bumps mouths clumsily with yours cos they’re too busy smiling to kiss you properly. Yeah. Wait for that."
"We need women who are so strong they can be gentle, so educated they can be humble, so fierce they can be compassionate, so passionate they can be rational, and so disciplined they can be free."
"This is one more piece of advice I have for you: don’t get impatient. Even if things are so tangled up you can’t do anything, don’t get desperate or blow a fuse and start yanking on one particular thread before it’s ready to come undone. You have to realize it’s going to be a
long process and that you’ll work on things slowly, one at a time."

decide one day when you’re walking down the street to giggle to yourself like you’ve got a little secret, and then make eye contact with the people that are walking by, and they always smile. they always smile, too. pass strangers on the street in the daylight and smile at them like you know em, throw them off real hard. I’m so happy when I’m walking down the street. there are so many leaves to touch, so many people to run into, so much chance just waiting for you to grab at it.
