You are beautiful. Own it. Walk like your hips move mountains.
Harry: Quirky, messy women whose problems only make them endearing are not real.
Girls face so many challenges — people are constantly telling them they can’t do things, they can’t be funny, they can’t run the companies — but my advice is just not to focus on anyone telling you that you can’t do anything, or politics in your situation. Just think about your art, that thing you’re gonna do. I can get caught up, I can spend my entire life doing panels on being a chubby person of color writing a TV show, and it would be useful to some people, but I wouldn’t be writing my TV show. And all my competition, all the white men who are doing the same thing, are not doing that; they’re just getting better and better and better at their job. We want to support each other without distracting each other. Heads down, work really hard, pretend your parents don’t like you and they locked you up in that third room, and just do your work.
You’re not gonna be on top of me the first time, this isn’t True Blood !
Write her a letter, send her a flower, love only gets old if you let it.
I cannot tell you how sexy it is to be enveloped in a hug by a man whose smell you remember.

- Cinema Paradiso (1988)
In 9th grade, this film changed the way I look at cinema forever. I owe it a lot, I need to watch it again soon.
