I believed that I wanted to be a poet, but deep down I just wanted to be a poem.

The fear of death follows from the fear of life. A man who lives fully is prepared to die at any time.
– Mark Twain (via artgods)
There is nothing wrong with being perpetually sad at the state of the world…there is too much stigma around sadness. Depressive realism is not a disease; it is an impetus to act. Be sad at all the injustice. Be angry that we are a part of it. Bathe in your anger. Live it. But, do not let it consume you. Channel it into improving the situation. Apply your anger for the betterment of humanity.
I design clothes because I don’t want women to look all innocent and naïve…I want woman to look stronger…I don’t like women to be taken advantage of…I don’t like men whistling at women in the street. I think they deserve more respect. I like men to keep their distance from women, I like men to be stunned by an entrance. I’ve seen a woman get nearly beaten to death by her husband. I know what misogyny is … I want people to be afraid of the women I dress.
– Alexander McQueen (via solestruckshoes)
