"Much of the pleasure of reading comes from the egotistical sense that we are clever enough to understand. When the author explains to us or interprets for us, we suspect that he or she doesn’t think us bright enough to do it for ourselves."

"She did not need much, wanted very little. A kind word, sincerity, fresh air, clean water, a garden, kisses, books to read, sheltering arms, a cosy bed, and to love and be loved in return."

what i literally do not understand ,

is why its ok

to insult your fucking child, and then expect them to respect you, as if you treated them like they fucking deserve to be???

like???? no im not going to fucking admire you as a parent if you make me feel like shit.

you’re supposed to bring your kids self esteem up????? not shatter it???????

when people say I never argue with my parents because they’re my parents and they’re always right

Hell no. If they’re saying bullshit I’m calling it out, and that doesn’t mean I don’t respect or love them.

some of you are so shallow basing who you want to date purely off looks, you have to consider other qualities about the person too like do they have lots of money, do they drive a nice car etc
