“I tell my students, ‘When you get these jobs that you have been so brilliantly trained for, just remember that your real job is that if you are free, you need to free somebody else. If you have some power, then your job is to empower somebody else. This is not just a grab-bag candy game.”

Toni Morrison (via jaegerjaques)

I love this so much. Wow.

Don’t ask me for relationship advice because I will always just tell you to break up with them and throw their shit in a dumpster because I do not understand the concept of allowing anyone to treat you poorly.
This is a zero tolerance zone.

“It was Darl. He come to the door and stood there, looking at his dying mother. He just looked at her, and I felt the bounteous love of the Lord again and His mercy. I saw that with Jewel she had just been pretending, but that it was between her and Darl that the understanding and the true love was. He just looked at her, not even coming in where she could see him and get upset, knowing that Anse was driving him away and he would never see her again. He said nothing, just looking at her. ‘What you want, Darl?’ Dewey Dell said, not stopping the fan, speaking up quick, keeping even him from her. He didn’t answer. He just stood and looked at his dying mother, his heart too full for words.”
— William Faulkner, As I Lay Dying
