“We got to the final scene which upsets many people because Katharina makes her act of submission to Petruchio on behalf of all women to all men, and a lot of women didn’t like that, so many actresses have tended to do the speech with a sense of irony. But Liz played it straight, as though she meant it, and Richard was so moved by her speech that he wiped away a tear and said “All right, my girl, I do wish you’d put that into practice.”
She looked him in the eye and replied, “Of course, I can’t say it in words like that, but my heart is there.”—Franco Zeffirelli, the director of The taming of the shrew (via fuckyeahrichardburton)
A warrior of light does not waste time and energy listening to provocations. He also does not waste time criticizing other people’s decisions. He does not judge the dreams of others. In order to have faith in his own path he does not need to prove that another’s path is wrong.
"Ladies, you need to understand that as long as you got a vagina, you run the entire motherfucking Universe. That’s the way it is. You need to understand that. Ladies, I’m telling you. You gotta be the shit to you. Stop waitin on a man to verify whether you the shit or not. Bitch, if you the shit; you the motherfucking shit" -Kat Williams
“Good deeds, kindness, forgiveness, tolerance, acts of love, none of these are ever lost, and some day they will return to us. Even if the recipient appears ungrateful or heedless, it is all the same. There is no need to be disappointed even if he proves to be unworthy of our kindness and our love. When we realize that all life is one life, we discover that it is to that life that we give our love and kindness and mercy. Then it is bound to return to us, if not today, perhaps next week. If not next week, perhaps next year. If not here, then somewhere where we never expected it could possibly come.”—Hazrat Inayat Khan (via peaceofshell)
