It's only words, and words are all I have
to take your heart away


a girl saying “no” to a man literally got her killed and the general consensus of cis men is that we’re overreacting with our numerous worries and safety procedures and “women and men are equal in today’s world”. what a joke. under the guise of progression like “there are more women going to university” and more women in the media there are still women being killed for not doing as a man wants her to and that’s terrifying. 

(via notcompletelyhopeless)

My meaning simply is, that whatever I have tried to do in life, I have tried with all my heart to do well; that whatever I have devoted myself to, I have devoted myself to completely; that in great aims and in small, I have always been thoroughly in earnest.

Charles Dickens, David Copperfield (via bookmania)

[“My Master,” he says, “has forewarned me.] Daily he announces more distinctly, — ‘Surely I come quickly;’ and hourly I more eagerly respond, — ‘Amen; even so come, Lord Jesus!’”
