I’m so loyal to anything that gives me the teeniest bit of happiness and completion, and that’s exactly where my naivety lies.
― Dau Voire (via kushandwizdom)


the one thing that has stuck with me every day since my English teacher told me it in middle school is:

"When referring to someone, always say who they are before anything else about them, because being a person always comes first"

Instead of saying “the mentally ill man,” say “the man with a mental illness”

Putting someone’s characteristics (especially negative ones) before them is dehumanizing and rude. Don’t do it.
