“I do not believe that just because you’re opposed to abortion, that that makes you pro-life. In fact, I think in many cases, your morality is deeply lacking if all you want is a child born but not a child fed, not a child educated, not a child housed. And why would I think that you don’t? Because you don’t want any tax money to go there. That’s not pro-life. That’s pro-birth. We need a much broader conversation on what the morality of pro-life is.”—Sister Joan Chittister, Catholic Nun (via timehasflewn)
i know i’m going through a lot right now, but i also know that i’ll get through it like always. no self-pity, no self-hate, just plain coping. and these are the times i couldn’t thank those who’ve been there for me enough.
“This is for all the people I’ll never meet. This is for the person I might have kissed had I taken a different subway line on Saturday and the person I might have been if that boy hadn’t broken my mother’s teenage heart. This is for the people I would have loved if last winter hasn’t been so cold and for the city I would have called home if I had written haikus on napkins and carried pens in dress pockets and in the knots of my hair. This is for who I was, who I am, who I might be. This is for you.”—Camryn Pulaski (via loveyourchaos)
i don’t mind that much when it’s too cold because you can have hot drinks and snuggle in blankets and not go out but when it’s hot it’s like whAT CAN YOU DO YOU CAN’T ESCAPE IT YOU CAN’T GET AWAY FROM IT YOU JUST WANT TO SIT IN A FRIDGE OR TURN INTO ICE
