…this is a woman who has built her identity on her looks, and on what she’s been told to do. So what you’re getting is someone who married this man, and he gave her everything, and she did what she was told, and she is basing her self-esteem on her looks, and that’s very, very rocky ground… Betty’s life is a performance. She’s acting all the time. And she doesn’t know how not to do that.  -  Matthew Weiner discussing Betty Draper

"There are people who will feel threatened by the idea of you liking yourself. This is because if you like yourself, you’ll believe that you deserve to be treated well, so you won’t tolerate it when they treat you badly, and they either don’t know how to treat you properly or don’t want to treat you properly, so they know you liking yourself means that you will invariably leave them or stand up to them. When somebody wants you to be insecure or to doubt yourself, it’s because they want to use those insecurities and doubts against you. To hell with those people. They don’t care about you. They just want to be able to treat you like dirt, and they’re scared you won’t let them, so go ahead, scare them; love yourself."

you have bewitched me, body and soul, and I love, I love, I love you. I never wish to be parted from you from this day on.

"…ISIL speaks for no religion. Their victims are overwhelmingly Muslim, and no faith teaches people to massacre innocents. No just God would stand for what they did yesterday and what they do every single day."
