“A woman had not touched a hand to him with any degree of tenderness in so long that he had come to see himself as another kind of creature altogether from what he had been. It was his lot to bear the penalty of the unredeemed, that tenderness be forevermore denied him and that his life be marked down a dark mistake. And in his troubled mind and constant sorrow he did not even think it possible to reach a hand to Sara’s hip and pull her to him and hold her close till daylight.”—Cold Mountain (via rubberbandz)

“Hairy pits are a gift you give yourself every day. One, the money you save on razor blades and nair. Two, your pits become a “bullshit person” filter. Anyone that can’t handle my hairy pits are probably not worth my time. They are definitely going to have a problem with my radical politics. We probably won’t even agree on TV shows. So if someone gives you shit for having body hair, just tell yourself “Thank God! One less Family Guy fan I have to talk to.”—Bethy Squires, Ask the Advice Witch (via baby-cunt)
Tonight will go down as one of the most important nights in my Muay Thai career. One of my instructors suggested that I consider training for a round of fights coming up early(ish) next year, that he and my other instructor thought that I should do it. These guys have no clue how they have saved my life, and having them believe in my ability to partake in this endeavor means the absolute world to me. So, here’s to the next 4 months, to training as hard as I possibly can, to taking in every bit of information I possibly can, and to treating my body with the upmost respect and like the temple these curves are.
