❝ a woman who says “no thanks, I’ll sleep on the floor”; a woman who freezes up and tenses at your touch; a woman who says “I really don’t want to” and “we really shouldn’t” and “we can’t” and “please at least wear a condom” is not saying yes to you, and if you would like to pretend that that is unclear, you are a liar, you are being disingenuous, you are lying and you know it.
— Mallory Ortberg, "What counts?"

❝ if something burns your soul with purpose and desire, it’s your duty to be reduced to ashes by it. any other form of existence will be yet another dull book in the library of life.
