“Sleep heavily and know that I am here with you. The past is gone, and cannot harm you anymore.
And while the future is fast coming for you, it always flinches first, and settles in as the gentle present.
This now, this us, we can cope with that.
We can do this together you and I”

“And you tried to change, didn’t you? Closed your mouth more. Tried to be softer, prettier, less volatile, less awake…
You can’t make homes out of human beings. Someone should have already told you that. And if he wants to leave, then let him leave.
You are terrifying, and strange, and beautiful. Something not everyone knows how to love.”

— Warsan Shire, For Women Who Are Difficult To Love

“Why do people go to the cinema? What takes them into a darkened room where, for two hours, they watch the play of shadows on a sheet? The search for entertainment? The need for a kind of drug? All over the world there are, indeed, entertainment firms and organisations which exploit cinema and television and spectacles of many other kinds. Our starting-point, however, should not be there, but in the essential principles of cinema, which have to do with the human need to master and know the world. I think that what a person normally goes to the cinema for is time: for time lost or spent or not yet had. He goes there for living experience; for cinema, like no other art, widens, enhances and concentrates a person’s experience—and not only enhances it but makes it longer, significantly longer. That is the power of cinema: ‘stars’, story-lines and entertainment have nothing to do with it.”

— Andrei Tarkovsky, Sculpting In Time (1987)

We call ships ‘she.’ We call our war machines ‘women.’ We compare women to black widows and vipers.
And you’re going to tell me it’s not ‘lady-like’ to scream, to take up space, to fight and demand respect and do whatever the hell I want.
You’ve looked at nuclear bombs and been so in awe that you could only name them after women. Don’t try to down-play my power.

“Among other things, you’ll find that you’re not the first person who was ever confused and frightened and even sickened by human behavior. You’re by no means alone on that score, you’ll be excited and stimulated to know. Many, many men have been just as troubled morally and spiritually as you are right now. Happily, some of them kept records of their troubles. You’ll learn from them—if you want to. Just as someday, if you have something to offer, someone will learn something from you. It’s a beautiful reciprocal arrangement. And it isn’t education. It’s history. It’s poetry.”
