“Let children read whatever they want and then talk about it with them. If parents and kids can talk together, we won’t have as much censorship because we won’t have as much fear.”
Judy Blume (via thelifeguardlibrarian)
Saw this on my dash just as I finished formatting a teacher’s companion for this year’s CBLDF Liberty Annual and, yeah, I agree with this.
PREACH it, Judy.
“I think we are and will always
be lonely people in a lonely
world under lonely stars.
We can never starve our loneliness.
We can only hope that by the
company of others,
it doesn’t devour us.”
— Testy McTesterson (via hqlines)
“I think you still love me, but we can’t escape the fact that I’m not enough for you. I knew this was going to happen. So I’m not blaming you for falling in love with another woman. I’m not angry, either. I should be, but I’m not. I just feel pain. A lot of pain. I thought I could imagine how much this would hurt, but I was wrong.”
— Haruki Murakami, South of the Border, West of the Sun (via aestheticintrovert)
