In order to become the supreme adult, you must perform the seven wonders:

  • Public speaking
  • Not being afraid of teenagers
  • Calling the doctor yourself
  • Taxes
  • Arguing without crying
  • Having a normal sleep pattern
  • Having an answer to the question ‘what do you want to do with your life?’

“True rebels after all, are as rare as true lovers, and in both cases, to mistake a fever for passion can destroy one’s life.”
— James Baldwin

…Janet MacLachlan and…James McEachin worked on [the Rockford Files] in parts that were about character, not race…Rita Moreno elevated the heroic call girl stereotype in her recurring role…Maybe one reason is that the decision makers on “Rockford” reflected life, as well. Behind the camera, actor-director Ivan Dixon directed a chunk of episodes, and African American actor-producer Chas. Floyd Johnson was a longtime part of the production team. It all seemed no big deal in the Rockford/Garner world, one that was written, it can be noted, not only by David Chase, who obviously learned lessons he would later bring to “The Sopranos,” but also by Juanita Bartlett, who wrote many of the show’s best episodes and was story consultant.

“I want you
to undress me
to the sound
of all your
defenses
collapsing.”
Saying The Same Amount In Sex As We Could In Ten Conversations | Lora Mathis (via lora-mathis)
“I am beautiful,
especially when I’m angry.
When there are no words,
and I am my purest form of rage.
They tell us that women
should cry quietly,
and birth their anger in secret.
But I will rain over everything near,
unforgivingly loud,
my beauty is in my angry rebellion.”
Key Ballah (via keywrites)

Josephine Premice (1926-2001), the splendid Tony-nominated actress, singer and dancer was born 88 years ago today in Brooklyn, New York. Diahann Carroll, her best friend for more than four decades, called the Haitian-American aesthete “a naturally elegant woman who had exquisite taste in everything in life” and credited her with her fashion advice that she still uses. Ms. Premice was also the mother of novelist and television producer (“A Different World”) Susan Fales-Hill who wrote a fantastic memoir about her mother called “Always Wear Joy.” In this photo, Ms. Premice is seen tying the ribbon on her high-heeled shoes just before a performance in May 1951.

"no one can love you until you love yourself"

that is complete bullshit

don’t let anyone tell you that you don’t deserve love from other people because you struggle with loving yourself
