"If you had an opportunity for a stunningly beautiful experience, but knew it couldn’t last - would you walk away, or see it through? And realize that question could be asked about life itself. Life doesn’t last forever, so what do you want it to look like? Start making it look that way today."
Dr. Ramani (via cannonnyc)
"I grew up in a Silence of the Lambs culture, a culture where rape and killing women are very common themes for movies and TV shows. Society isn’t afraid of sex and violence; they are afraid of women owning their own bodies and controlling their own sexuality—which is what happens in BDSM."
Princess Donna, pornographic actress, director and BDSM educator (via heymaitreyi)

"For I have known them all already, known them all—
Have known the evenings, mornings, afternoons,
I have measured out my life with coffee spoons;
I know the voices dying with a dying fall
Beneath the music from a farther room.
So how should I presume?"
T.S. Eliot, The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock
