“Those who seek absolute power, even though they seek it to do what they regard as good, are simply demanding the right to enforce their own version of heaven on earth. And let me remind you, they are the very ones who always create the most hellish tyrannies. Absolute power does corrupt, and those who seek it must be suspect and must be opposed.”—Barry Goldwater (via sab-rina) (via quote-book)
“When you are joyous, look deep into your heart and you shall find it is only that which has given you sorrow that is giving you joy. When you are sorrowful look again in your heart, and you shall see that in truth you are weeping for that which has been your delight.”—Kahlil Gibran (via johannal) (via quote-book)
The last straw… Enough is enough. I am tired of petty games, boys, and unhappy days. 2010 could not come any quicker… I will not settle for anything less than I deserve this year. This means an end to dating menboys not worthy of me (& by all means is this self-centered, I deserve the best), tolerating people I do not need in my life, and being as happy as I possibly can. Take a good look, kids… This next year is bringing amazing things.
Novia… You already know I totally agree. Yea, ok, all those cutesy games were adorable in the beginning but WOW, I do not have all the time in the world. —And even if I did, I sure as hell wouldn’t spend it on waiting for you to make up your fucking mind. Bottom line: Either you want it or you dont; black or white, no gray areas… and if you gotta think about it, then clearly, you do not want it bad enough. Which is fine. Just be upfront about it. I’m not the type of person to get into anything unless I thought it could go somewhere… meaning my talking to you shows genuine interest. Furthermore, very seldom am I so floored by someone enough to legitimately “like” them, which in itself, is a feat in declaring. I do not talk to a collection of guys, “dating around,” trying to compare guy to guy to see which one would be a better deal. No. You have my undivided attention. Therefore, I think it only fair you give me the decency of not wasting my time. I refuse to sell myself short and settle for less than the best because, fuck it, I think I fucking deserve it. Through all the bullshit life’s thrown my way, and the way I’ve dealt with it? …YEA. I deserve GRADE A MAN BEEF. Either you’re man enough to hang with me or you’re not —I would much rather be doing other things than sitting around and wasting my time.
