“I don’t believe in charity. I believe in solidarity. Charity is vertical, so it’s humiliating. It goes from the top to the bottom. Solidarity is horizontal. It respects the other and learns from the other. I have a lot to learn from other people.” —Eduardo Galeano (via transformfeminism)

“All these soft, warm nights going to waste when I ought to be lying in your arms under the moon- the dearest arms in all the world- darling arms that I love so to feel around me- How much longer before they’ll be here to stay?

“When I saw you, I fell in love. And you smiled because you knew.” —William Shakespeare (via xcassiekilla)
“But i must admit i miss you quite terribly. The world is too quiet without you nearby. I go to bed early and rise late and feel as if i have hardly slept.” —Lemony Snicket, The Beatrice Letters (via dysphorias)
