My name is Amanda. I laugh like what i imagine a moose sounds like. I should've been born a mermaid, sincerely. I consume 3x more chocolate than the average human being. DON'T touch my motherf*ckin' cookies if you know what's good for you. I love daffodils in April and sunflowers in August. I am easily moved by gorgeous photographs - pictures of the faraway places, the ocean, the elderly, slums, puppies, and fat asses are typically my favorite. oh, and i'm a Brooklyn girl, I might take some gettin' use to.
"But I tried, didn’t I? Goddamnit, at least I did that."
"I have no dress except the one I wear every day. If you are going to be kind enough to give me one, please let it be practical and dark so that I can put it on afterwards to go to the laboratory."
INTERNATIONAL WOMEN'S DAY: 10 great literary quotes by women
Celebrating International Women’s Day (March 8), we’ve got a handful of 19th century (and one 20th century) literary quotations by, for, and about the position and power of women:
- "What do we live for, if it is not to make life less difficult to each other?" —George Eliot (Marian Evans,…
"Today is a day of celebration for women all around the world. We should take pride in all that we have accomplished over the years. We have come so far and overcome so much, and together we only grow stronger. While celebrating, though, we must take a moment to reflect on all our sisters around the world who continue to struggle every day for their rights. We must not move on without them. It is my hope and dream that one day every girl will go to school without fear or intimidation, and they will learn and grow to lead our future generations - as doctors, politicians, teachers, sisters and mothers. On this day we stand together and continue to grow stronger. And we will stand together tomorrow, and every day after as well."
