"You don’t owe prettiness to anyone. Not to your boyfriend/spouse/partner, not to your co-workers, especially not to random men on the street. You don’t owe it to your mother, you don’t owe it to your children, you don’t owe it to civilization in general. Prettiness is not a rent you pay for occupying a space marked “female”."
- Erin McKean, You Don’t Have to Be Pretty (via larmoyante)
"‘What of art?’
‘It is a malady.’
‘A fashionable substitute for belief.’
‘You are a sceptic.’

‘To define is to limit.’"
- Oscar Wilde, The Picture of Dorian Gray (via larmoyante)
"Behind every exquisite thing that existed, there was something tragic."
- Oscar Wilde (via larmoyante)
