"Do not raise your children the way your parents raised you; they were born for a different time. "
Abi bin Abi Taleb (599—661 A.D.)
Teach your child to not be prejudice, ignorant, and uptight.
Doris Lessing, The Golden Notebook (via feellng)
"What’s terrible is to pretend that second-rate is first-rate. To pretend that you don’t need love when you do; or you like your work when you know quite well you’re capable of better."
