Rules: In a text post, list ten books that have stayed with you in some way. Don’t take but a few minutes, and don’t think too hard — they don’t have to be the “right” or “great” works, just the ones that have touched you. Tag [ten] friends, including me, so I’ll see your list. Make sure you let your friends know you’ve tagged them.

I was tagged by the joyful fox!

My oh my, it was a joy to be tagged, but selecting works will be very, very difficult.

  1. Shadow of the Almighty  - Elisabeth Elliot
  2. A Room with a View  - E.M. Forster
  3. East of Eden  -Steinbeck
  4. The Little Prince - Antoine de Saint-Exupéry
  5. The Fault in Our Stars - John Green
  6. Hamlet - Shakespeare
  7. Wintergirls - Laurie Halse Anderson 
  8. Eyes Like Stars (and the entire Theatre Illuminata series) - Lisa Mantchev
  9. Little Women - Louisa May Alcott
  10. The Dogs of Babel - Carolyn Parkhurst

I am not satisfied by this list, not even remotely, but it’ll have to do as I cannot seem to come up with a better one. Some of these books don’t belong on here, some of them deserve higher places. I left the Bible off, but it’s more important that all of these. I don’t know what else to say, nor do I have ten people to tag, but oh well.

I’ll tag the following only as I know that they’ll appreciate it.

Food doesn’t taste better or worse when documented by Instagram. Laughter is as genuine over Skype as it would be sharing a sofa. Pay attention. Take in nature, hold someone’s hand, read a book. But don’t ever apologize for snapping a photo of a sunrise after a hike, or blogging about the excitement of having a crush, or updating your goodreads account. All of these things are good and should be celebrated. Smile at strangers on the sidewalk and like your friends’ selfies. It’s all good for the human spirit.

'Tell me what happens the first time you see a woman naked.'

'The first time you see a woman naked will not be like you imagined. There will be no love, no trust, no intimacy. You won’t even be in the same room as her.

You won’t get to smile as she undresses you and you undress her. You won’t get to calm her nerves with nerves of your own. You won’t get to kiss her, feeling her lips and the edge of her tongue. You won’t get to brush your fingers over the lace of her bra or count her ribs or feel her heartbeat.

The first time you see a woman naked you will be sitting in front of a computer screen watching someone play at intimacy and perform at sex. She will contort her body to please everyone in the room but her. You will watch this woman who is not a woman, pixelated and filtered and customized. She will come ready-made, like an order at a restaurant. The man on the screen will be bigger than you, rougher than you. He will teach you how to talk to her. He will teach you where to put your hands and he will teach you what you’re supposed to like. He will teach you to take what is yours.

You must unlearn this. You must unlearn this twisted sense of love. You must unlearn the definition of pleasure and intimacy you are being taught. Kill this idea of love, this idea of entitlement, this way of scarring one another.’

this scared me and made me cry and i am almost embarrassed to post this but quite honestly i would rather fight for this rather than anything else.

men and womens value, and the indescribable importance of intimacy

(via fluts)

Very important. Like HUGELY important.
