"I prefer by far the warmth and softness to mere brilliancy and coldness. Some people remind me of sharp dazzling diamonds. Valuable but lifeless and loveless. Others, of the simplest field flowers, with hearts full of dew and with all the tints of celestial beauty reflected in their modest petals."

"The nudity I think scares the nation as a whole because we are taught that nudity is a bad thing. But what I really learned was that when it was packaged the way it was, with no high heeled shoes or long hair or spinning around a pole or popping it, people have a hard time processing it when its not packaged for the consumption of male entertainment. They don’t know what to do with it or how to place it or what to say because surely a woman cant be intelligent enough to be making a point. It has to be for publicity or for sale."

"The happiness we seek cannot be found through grasping, trying to hold on to things. It cannot be found through getting serious and uptight about wanting things to go in the direction we think will bring happiness. We are always taking hold of the wrong end of the stick. The point is that the happiness we seek is already here and it will be found through relaxation and letting go rather than through struggle."
- Pema Chödron (via yogachocolatelove)
"I can’t think of anything but nights with you. I want them warm and silvery, when we can be together all our lives."
