We are so used
to the idea of a woman
hating herself
that the thought
of self love and confidence
is repulsive. Michelle K., What Do You Really Mean When You Call Her a Bitch? (via michellekpoems)

This book gives me more information about penguins than I care to have.

In 1944 a children’s book club sent a volume about penguins to a 10-year-old girl, enclosing a card seeking her opinion.

She wrote, “This book gives me more information about penguins than I care to have.”

American diplomat Hugh Gibson called it the finest piece of literary criticism he had ever read.
