I’ve put up with too much, too long. And now I’m just too intelligent, too powerful, too beautiful, too sure of who I am finally to deserve anything less. –Sandra Cisneros
“all over the world wars
by the same ills as their oppressor
the real revolution is
to love myself.”
Always be a first-rate version of yourself, instead of a second-rate version of somebody else. –Judy Garland
She wanted a relationship that consisted of loving someone unconditionally, flaws and all, so she started with herself.
