“The rich defend illegal abortion to keep it a secret and not be embarrassed. I am sick and tired of seeing poor girls die so the rich can abort in secret. The girls from our slums (shanty homes) die and the clinics make fortunes taking their money in order to remove the shame from their uterus. With divorce they said it was the end of the family unit. It was only the end of the shame of those who went through with illegal separations. With LEGAL ABORTIONS there will not be any more or less abortion, there’ll be less dead mothers. The rest is EDUCATING, not LEGISLATING.”—
René Favaloro, pro-abortion legalisation.
(forgive my translation. It’s not 100% a direct translation but it is basically what he’s saying)
“Try to learn to breathe deeply, really to taste food when you eat, and when you sleep, really to sleep. Try as much as possible to be wholly alive with all your might, and when you laugh, laugh like hell. And when you get angry, get good and angry. Try to be alive. You will be dead soon enough.”—Ernest Hemingway (via araws)
“You don’t need another human being to make your life complete, but let’s be honest. Having your wounds kissed by someone who doesn’t see them as disasters in your soul, but fractures to put their love into is the most calming thing in this world.”—Emery Allen (via hellanne)
“Once, Picasso was asked what his paintings meant. He said, “Do you ever know what the birds are singing? You don’t. But you listen to them anyway.” So, sometimes with art, it is important just to look.”—Marina Abramović (via cestlavieparis)
“The sexiest thing in the entire world is being really smart; and being thoughtful and being generous. Everything else is crap. I promise you. It’s just crap that people try to sell to you to make you feel less. So don’t buy it.”—Ashton Kutcher - accepting his ultimate choice award (via daydreambeliever25)
