Taylor Swift - Shake it Off



"Emotions, in my experience, aren’t covered by single words. I don’t believe in sadness, joy, or regret. Maybe the best proof that the language is patriarchal is that it oversimplifies feeling. I’d like to have at my disposal complicated hybrid emotions, Germanic train-car constructions like, say, the happiness that attends disaster. Or: the disappointment of sleeping with one’s fantasy. I’d like to show how intimations of mortality brought on by aging family members connects with the hatred of mirrors that begins in middle age. I’d like to have a word for the sadness inspired by failing restaurants as well as for the excitement of getting a room with a minibar. I’ve never had the right words to describe my life, and now that I’ve entered my story, I need them more than ever."
Jeffrey Eugenides, Middlesex (via wordsnquotes)

"Most people think happiness is about gaining something, but it’s not. It’s all about getting rid of the darkness you accumulate."
Carolyn Crane (via thisyearsgirls)

"Destroy the idea that men should respect women because we are their daughters, mothers, and sisters. Reinforce the idea that men should respect women because we are people."
