Yet I continue to read, and to read a great deal. In the morning and in the afternoon before I settle down to work or when I am tired of writing I read; I read if I happen to spend the evening alone; and I read for hours when I am in Rome during the summer. There is no occupation that seems more natural to me.

Simone de Beauvoir, All Said and Done (via sketchofthepast)

Don’t ever feel bad for making a decision that upsets other people. You are not responsible for their happiness. You are responsible for your happiness.
