Quote of the Day

“I never played against my own intelligence to make men comfortable
around me. I come on strong by being open, not teasing. I don’t look
for strength in men’s eyes that way. As temporarily delightful as
cocktail conversation may be — until our cabs come — I get my real and
lasting courage from my own vulnerability. I can only trust my sense of
worth to be safe with those unafraid to love me, not someone who finds
me amusing five minutes ar a time.”
