“Guys go to a restaurant called Hooters. If there was a place where male waiters were dressed up to arouse the women, they wouldn’t be in Speedos. They would be in suits carrying briefcases and they’d be holding up their perfect credit reports.”—Whitney Cummings (via sweetlittlesnippets)
“To be born a Southern woman is to be made aware of your distinctiveness. And with it, the rules. The expectations. These vary some, but all follow the same basic template, which is, fundamentally, no matter what the circumstance, Southern women make the effort. Which is why even the girls in the trailer parks paint their nails. And why overstressed working moms still bake three dozen homemade cookies for the school fund-raiser. And why you will never see Reese Witherspoon wearing sweatpants. Or Oprah take a nap.”—Allison Glock, Garden and Gun Magazine (via justapinchofsouth)
PEYTON WILL BE READY FOR WEEK ONE ALRIGHT. QUIT IT WITH THE DAMN NEGATIVITY, IT’S NOT HELPING. YOU’RE ONLY STRESSING ME OUT. As Coach Dungy said, if he’s not dead, then he WILL be playing. You all just want to see him fail.
“A Southerner talks music. At least it is music to me, but then I was born in the South. The educated Southerner has no use for an r, except at the beginning of a word.”—Mark Twain (via littlemissillgettough)
“The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen.”—Elisabeth Kübler-Ross (via heoro)
