"When I was young I never wanted to get married, but after I did, I could never be without a wife again. Same about kids. I never wanted any, but after I had one, I never wanted to be without them."
— Ernest Hemingway (via h-o-r-n-g-r-y)

"I find many adults are put off when young children pose scientific questions. Why is the Moon round? the children ask. Why is grass green? What is a dream? How deep can you dig a hole? When is the world’s birthday? Why do we have toes? Too many teachers and parents answer with irritation or ridicule, or quickly move on to something else: ‘What did you expect the Moon to be, square?’ Children soon recognize that somehow this kind of question annoys the grown-ups. A few more experiences like it, and another child has been lost to science. Why adults should pretend to omniscience before 6-year-olds, I can’t for the life of me understand. What’s wrong with admitting that we don’t know something? Is our self-esteem so fragile?"

"Love your body. Every fold, every curve, every hairy bit, every crack, and crevice. Do not allow society to tell you what your body “should” look like. Do not fall into the trap of weighing your happiness on the pound. Your body is your home. It grows, it changes, it fluctuates, it carries the emotions of the day. Understand it is strong, it bends, it folds, it rolls, it brings life. Love your body in all of it’s beautiful glory."

"Introverts don’t get lonely if they don’t socialize with a lot of people, but we do get lonely if we don’t have intimate interactions on a regular basis."
