❝You are most powerful when you are most silent. People never expect silence. They expect words, motion, defense, offense, back and forth. They expect to leap into the fray. They are ready, fists up, words hanging leaping from their mouths. Silence? No.❞

Alison McGhee, All Rivers Flow To The Sea (via c-oquetry)

❝I think it’s brave to try to be happy.❞
