that shade of emerald

Taught from their infancy that beauty is woman’s sceptre, the mind shapes itself to the body, and roaming round its gilt cage, only seeks to adorn its prison.

Mary Wollstonecraft, A Vindication of the Rights of Woman (via girlinlondon)

Life is about recalibrating. About continually asking yourself: What do I have to do to get where I need to be? How do I create the life I want?

—Oprah Winfrey (via saminthecity)
