Quotes tagged “societal standards”
This may have been a me thing, but growing up I got a LOT of messages that I w ,as supposed to marry a successful man. Not a kind man, not a man who shared my dreams, above all, a successful man. That's not a message that seems to make for really happy marriages.”
There was something other than making money
Where I had to go
There was some kind of dream for me too”
Is to reach a bit higher than I’m able to
The standards of the world is becoming like Everest
The more I go towards the top, stress builds up like a mountain
I know I can never rest”
even in the presence of love, in the presence of hunger.
And the more deeply I felt
the less able I was to respond.”
