You literally only said I look like that person because we are both black and have afros: An Autobiography
Self-consciousness is the enemy of all art, be it acting, writing, painting, or living itself, which is the greatest art of all.
― Ray Bradbury (via observando)
I think Austen was a visionary. I think her female characters are so bright and witty, the themes are brilliant and the men are so sexy in Austen as well – but no man has ever fallen in love with an Austen woman because she is pretty or beautiful or because she has long blonde hair. They fall in love with them because of who they are, because of their vibrancy and intelligence. If only we taught that a little more in our schools.
