"I realised around when Boxer came out that I wanted to [be in a band] for a long time, and I didn’t want to look like one of these guys in their forties trying to look like they are still in their twenties. So I got a suit fitted and thought "I can wear this until I’m a 100 years old." It’s important to show I respect that more people are coming to our shows now. This is important, and I should dress up for it."
“I will teach my daughter not to wear her skin like a drunken apology.
I will tell her ‘make a home out of your body, live in yourself, do not let people turn you into a regret, do not justify yourself. If you are a disaster it is not forever, if you are a disaster you are the most beautiful one I’ve ever seen. Do not deconstruct from the inside out, you belong here, you belong here, not because you are lovely, but because you are more than that.’”
– Azra.T “Your hands are threads, your body is a canvas.” (via closedforprayer)
“At times I suffer from the strangest sense of detachment from myself and the world around me; I seem to watch it all from the outside, from somewhere inconceivably remote, out of time, out of space, out of the stress and tragedy of it all.”
