Girls are trained to say, ‘I wrote this, but it’s probably really stupid.’ Well, no, you wouldn’t write a novel if you thought it was really stupid. Men are much more comfortable going, ‘I wrote this book because I have a unique perspective that the world needs to hear.’ Girls are taught from the age of seven that if you get a compliment, you don’t go, ‘Thank you’, you go, ‘No, you’re insane.’ – Lena Dunham (via harryvibes)

I think writers tend to be experience junkies, and I think they also tend to want to be on the outside looking in. – Augusten Burroughs (via badddandi)

Someone who truly loves you will be angry at you for so many things, but will always stick around. – (via makemestfu)
