A woman is asked why she only does films about women. But men are never asked why they only do films about men.

Margaretha Von Tratta (via nuttersandcutters)

On demande aux femmes pourquoi elles ne font que des films à propos des femmes. Mais on ne demande pas aux hommes pourquoi ils ne font que des films sur les hommes.

While gazing at myself from yourself, I was beautiful.

Dejan Stojanovic, The Shape (via fables-of-the-reconstruction)

Oh, validation.

She was perfect, pure maddening sex, and she knew it, and she played on it, dripped it, and allowed you to suffer for it.
Charles Bukowski, Factotum (via reconnoitre)
Society is the product of relationship, of yours and mine together. If we change in our relationship, society changes.

We’re taught at such an early age to be against the communists, yet most of us don’t have the faintest idea what communism is. Only a fool lets somebody else tell him who his enemy is.

Josefina Fierro (1914–1998) was a Mexican American political activist from Calexico, California who fought for the rights of Mexican and Mexican American workers. She also played a key figure in the founding of the civil rights group “Congreso de Pueblos de Habla Española” and intervened in Washington, D.C. to end the unprovoked assaults of the Mexican American community in East L.A. and downtown Los Angeles during the Zoot Suit Riots.
In 1948 Fierro was accused of Communist affiliations by the California Committee on Un-American Activities, which led to her to being harassed by the CIA and having to move to Guaymas, Mexico to escape the government’s persecution. Fierro stayed in Mexico the rest of her life, where she passed away in 1998.

I’m actually so excited to leave this city. Might not come back… I find that Toronto possesses both overwhelming and disintegrating ‘vibes’ in both physicality and civilians. Always under construction. Always rushing.
I need to breathe. I need to encounter cosmic love.
And how can you when the air is polluted and you can’t see the stars?

In a game of chess you can make certain arbitrary concessions to your opponent, which stand to the ordinary rules of the game as miracles stand to the laws of nature. You can deprive yourself of a castle, or allow the other man sometimes to take back a move made inadvertently. But if you conceded everything that at any moment happened to suit him — if all his moves were revocable and if all your pieces disappeared whenever their position on the board was not to his liking — then you could not have a game at all. So it is with the life of souls in a world: fixed laws, consequences unfolding by causal necessity, the whole natural order, are at once limits within which their common life is confined and also the sole condition under which any such life is possible. Try to exclude the possibility of suffering which the order of nature and the existence of free wills involve, and you find that you have excluded life itself.
