“People are afraid of themselves, of their own reality; their feelings most of all. People are taught that pain is evil and dangerous. How can they deal with love if they’re afraid to feel? Pain is meant to wake us up. People try to hide their pain. But they’re wrong. Pain is something to carry, like a radio. You feel your strength in the experience of pain. It’s all in how you carry it....
We all do what we can So we can do just one more thing We can all be free Maybe not in words Maybe not with a look But with your mind
I am too intelligent, too demanding, and too resourceful for anyone to be able...– Simone de Beauvoir
