don’t date anyone who doesn’t ask you about your childhood and why you are the way that you are

don’t date anyone who won’t work to understand and accept those things

George Takei describes the moment when he and his family were sent to an internment camp.

"Another scene I remember now as an adult is every morning at school we started the day with the Pledge of Allegiance to the flag…there was the American flag flying over the camp but I could also see the barbed wire fence and the sentry towers pointing at us from my schoolhouse window as I recited the words ‘With liberty and justice for all’." - George Takei, The Daily Show (July 24, 2014).

It’s not the brains that matter most, but that which guides them — the character, the heart, generous qualities, progressive ideas.

—Fyodor Dostoyevsky, The Insulted and Humiliated (via wordsnquotes)

I mean they don’t seem able to love us just the way we are. They don’t seem able to love us unless they can keep changing us a little bit. They love their reasons for loving us almost as much as they love us, and most of the time more.

—J.D. Salinger, Nine Stories (via larmoyante)
