You have been wronged and scorned, but it is better for a human being to be oppressed than to be an oppressor, and more virtuous to be a martyr to the weakness of earthly impulses than to be a powerful person who crushes the flowers of life in his grasp and disfigures the noblest of emotions by his lusts… You are a flower crushed beneath the feet of animals in human guise. Those soles trampled upon you cruelly, but could not conceal your fragrance, which ascended with cries of widows and the wailing orphans and the sighs of poor to heaven, the source of justice and mercy. Take comfort that you are a crushed flower and not a trampling foot.
From ‘Marta al-Baniyah,’ a short story by Khalil Gibran (via arabstateofmind)

robotmango:

gooqueen:

every year after you turn 17 you get further away from being the age of the dancing queen and that’s my least favorite thing about growing up

ah but when you turn 34 you’re two dancing queens and thus having twice the time of your life. and at 51 you become the dancing triumvirate and three golden crowns are forged in your honor

lots to look forward to
