I must remind you that starving a child is violence. Suppressing a culture is violence. Neglecting school children is violence. Punishing a mother and her family is violence. Discrimination against a working man is violence. Ghetto housing is violence. Ignoring medical need is violence. Contempt for poverty is violence.
— Coretta Scott King (via samirathejerk)
Because you love one human being, you see everyone else very differently than you saw them before- perhaps I only mean to say that you begin to see- and you are both stronger and more vulnerable, both free and bound. Free, paradoxically, because, now, you have a home- your lover’s arms, And bound: to that mystery, precisely, a bondage which liberates you into something of the glory and the suffering of the world.
— James Baldwin, No Name In The Street (via vishuddhaa)

I don’t want to be at the mercy of my emotions. I want to use them, to enjoy them, and to dominate them.
