"Sometimes I dislike women, I dislike us all, because of our capacity for not-thinking when it suits us; we choose not to think when we are reaching our for happiness."
Doris Lessing, The Golden Notebook (via kushandwizdom)
"Someone once asked, “If you could take it all back, would you?”
At the time I didn’t know. Now I do. I wouldn’t take that terrible experience back for anything in the world. Too much light has come out of my darkness."
"She imagines him imagining her. This is her salvation."
Margaret Atwood, The Blind Assassin (via kushandwizdom)
