Sex Education in American Public Schools
What the actual fuck
Illinois should be listed in the last one. In my health book, I found the completely untrue and disgustingly homophobic statement that sexual relationships are proven to be more healthy between opposite sex partners.
"It’s never crossed my mind that my way of thinking is different from other people’s. I’m not trying to be different. But when I speak out honestly, everybody thinks I’m kidding or play acting."
Haruki Murakami, Norwegian Wood (via paygeturner)
"I think you take everything too seriously. Loving another person is a wonderful thing and if that love is sincere, no one ends up tossed in the labyrinth. You have to have more faith in yourself."
Reiko, Norwegian Wood (via lustboy01)
"Colours shone with exceptional clarity in the rain. The ground was a deep black, the pine branches a brilliant green, the people wrapped in yellow looking like special spirits that were allowed to wander over the earth on rainy mornings only."
Haruki Murakami, Norwegian Wood (via a-thousand-words)
"It just happened to be the way I’m made. I have to write things down to feel I fully comprehend them."
Haruki Murakami, Norwegian Wood (via quotedbook)
"I want you always to remember me. Will you remember that I existed, and that I stood next to you here like this?"
― Haruki Murakami (author of Norwegian Wood)
“You’re really cute,” I said.
“- Midori,” she said, “Say my name”.
“You’re really cute, Midori,” I corrected myself.
“What do you mean really cute?”
“So cute the mountains crumble and the oceans dry up.”
Midori lifted her face and looked at me. “You have this way special way with words.”
“I can feel my heart softening when you say that,” I said, smiling.
“Say something even nicer”.
“I really like you, Midori. A lot.”
“How much is a lot?”
“Like a spring bear”, I said.
“A spring bear?” Midori looked up again. “What’s that all about? A spring bear”.
“You’re walking through a field all by yourself one day in spring, and this sweet little bear cub with velvet fur and shiny little eyes comes walking along. And he says to you ‘Hi, there, little lady. Want to tumble with me?’ So you and the bear cub spend the whole day in each other’s arms, tumbling down this clover covered hill. Nice huh?”.
“Yeah. Really nice”.
“That’s how much I like you”."
