Happy Birthday Nas! (September 14, 1973)

"He [Amy’s manager] is crying […] and he’s a big guy […], he pulls me outside and he’s like ‘you know she wrote these lyrics for you’ and I was like ‘wow’, you know what I’m saying?” - Nas talking about Cherry Wine

I’m not fascinated by people who smile all the time. What I find interesting is the way people look when they are lost in thought, when their face becomes angry or serious, when they bite their lip, the way they glance, the way they look down when they walk, when they are alone and smoking a cigarette, when they smirk, the way they half smile, the way they try and hold back tears, the way when their face says they want to say something but can’t, the way they look at someone they want or love… I love the way people look when they do these things. It’s… beautiful.

Millions of people are suffering: they want to be loved but they don’t know how to love. And love cannot exist as a monologue; it is a dialogue, a very harmonious one.
- Osho (via psych-facts)
If men were socialized to desire love as much as they are taught to desire sex, we would see a cultural revolution.

Good art provides people with a vocabulary about things they can’t articulate.

"I have no shrewd advice to offer developing writers about this business of snatching time and space to work.  I do not have anything profound to offer mother-writers or worker-writers except to say that it will cost you something.  Anything of value is going to cost you something."
—Toni Cade Bambara, author, filmmaker, feminist, professor and social activist
