Egon Schiele  THE DANCER

"Don’t be slutty, don’t have sex. But be sexy. If you’re too sexy though and you get raped, then that’s you’re own fault because you’re not actually supposed to listen to us about being sexy, even though we tell you your value is derived from how sexy you are. If you get into a position of power, we will assume that you used your sex appeal to get there and not your brains and we will mock you even though we told you the only thing that mattered was your sex appeal. Make yourself accessible to me, but holy shit stop being so desperate and needy. Don’t be a tease. If we want to have sex with you, don’t friendzone us, even though we just fucking told you not to have sex."

- Patriarchy Proverb

Happy Birthday, Marguerite Gardiner, born 1 September 1789, died 4 June 1849
Seven Quotes
Happiness consists not in having much, but in being content with little.
A woman’s head is always influenced by heart; but a man’s heart by his head.
Conversation is the legs on which thought walks; and writing, the wings by which it flies.
Some people are capable of making great sacrifices, but few are capable of concealing how much the effort has cost them.
Wit is the lightning of the mind, reason the sunshine, and reflection the moonlight.
We never respect those who amuse us, however we may smile at their comic powers.
Talent, like beauty, to be pardoned, must be obscure and unostentatious.
Marguerite Gardiner, Countess of Blessington, was an Irish novelist.

"The truth is, I can’t be with you like this. I mean, I know I said that I could, but I can’t. I just can’t compromise myself like that. I mean, I’m an emotional person. I feel things and I need to be able to get upset, and talk about how I’m feeling. I mean, that’s just, that’s who I am, and I can’t change it. I don’t want to. And the thing is, you knew that, you knew it, and you still pursued me. Because you want something with me. You just aren’t strong enough to have it. Which in a way makes you a coward. And the saddest part is that, one day you’re going to wake up, and you’re going to realized what you missed and its going to be too late."

"Politeness is okay, but it gets old and boring. You want to attack life with a passion, not a politeness, you want people to think about you and remember you and say ‘she is so passionate’ you don’t want people to think about you and remember you and say ‘she is so polite,’ because, who cares about polite?"

"It turned out this man worked for the Dalai Lama. And she said gently-that they believe when a lot of things start going wrong all at once, it is to protect something big and lovely that is trying to get itself born-and that this something needs for you to be distracted so that it can be born as perfectly as possible."
