"You're passionate. When you hate someone, you hate them. When you love someone, it's the most they've ever been loved."


It’s also one of the very rare films that I’ve ever seen, I think, that celebrate female rage, a certain kind of violence perpetrated by a woman. Like, yes, there are movies about female serial killers and other kinds of truly evil women, but I can’t remember the last time I saw an American movie where an American woman washed off blood in a shower and the blood wasn’t hers. Where the blood was the blood of a man who maybe didn’t deserve to die, but who certainly wasn’t innocent; a former boyfriend that wanted to control everything about Amy, to keep her safely locked up in his ideal version of her.

What the movie really highlights, and I think even more so than the book, is that Amy has spent her whole life living someone else’s story: first as a character in her parent’s books, as the right kind of sexually available woman (as described in her infamous ‘Cool Girl’ monologue, a testament to Gillian Flynn’s incredible ability to pinpoint a certain kind of anti-feminist feminist screed directed at other women as well as the patriarchal culture that creates those women), as the right kind of girlfriend, and it’s her role as the right kind of wife that does finally undo her.

they both look a little nervous about what the other one might write

then just the biggest smiles when they are reassured yet again how much they just love each other

A League of Their Own (1992), 1st Game Warm Up

"Just because you miss someone, it doesn’t mean you should go back to them. Sometimes you have to just keep missing them until you wake up one morning and realise that you don’t anymore."  - (via beautyinphotography)

"You don’t measure love in time. You measure love in transformation. Sometimes the longest connections yield very little growth, while the briefest of encounters change everything. The heart doesn’t wear a watch - it’s timeless. It doesn’t care how long you know someone. It doesn’t care if you had a 40 year anniversary if there is no juice in the connection. What the heart cares about is resonance. Resonance that opens it, resonance that enlivens it, resonance that calls it home. And when it finds it, the transformation begins…"  - Jeff Brown (via cosmofilius)

"I love women,” coming from a man, almost always means “I love when women please me,” “I love to imagine fucking women,” “I love to jack off to women’s pornified bodies,” “I love women who don’t challenge me in a way that makes me uncomfortable,” or “I love the idea of women."  - Meghan Murphy, “'Skinny' or 'curvy,' our bodies are not our own: Why the 'No More Skinny' campaign doesn't help" (via feministcurrent)

"Sometimes you meet someone, and it’s so clear that the two of you, on some level belong together. As lovers, or as friends, or as family, or as something entirely different. You just work, whether you understand one another or you’re in love or you’re partners in crime. You meet these people throughout your life, out of nowhere, under the strangest circumstances, and they help you feel alive. I don’t know if that makes me believe in coincidence, or fate, or sheer blind luck, but it definitely makes me believe in something."  - Unknown (via wethinkwedream)
