Don’t ever compliment me by insulting other women. That’s not a compliment, it’s a competition none of us agreed to.

"it’s a competition none of us agreed to"  I want to give the author of this quote the hardest dap ever.

“He Tells Her”

He tells her that the Earth is flat—
He knows the facts, and that is that.
In altercations fierce and long
She tries her best to prove him wrong.
But he has learned to argue well.
He calls her arguments unsound
And often asks her not to yell.
She cannot win. He stands his ground.

The planet goes on being round.

In the carpal tunnel there’s a crimson door.           On one side is the meadow with its goose trees,its monologue of fence, its sky, first gray, that turns   fiery and brown, with flecks of gold like soldiers’     eyes, minarets. Bold crescent, a bone, a nape,       the shape a toothache makes. On the other             are one hundred choices—carefully.

I began to realize how important it was to be an enthusiast in life. If you are interested in something, no matter what it is, go at it full speed ahead. Embrace it with both arms, hug it, love it and above all become passionate about it. Lukewarm is no good.
