i speak quotes

You are beautiful, not necessarily by looks
But by the way you speak and think
By the way you act with love instead of hate
And how you chose to love others
It’s beautiful, you are beautiful
You should speak to somebody. You should. If you have a problem, do not suffer in silence. Speak to a friend, or a teacher, or a sister, or another adult. You might not like your parents or your teachers or your siblings, there will be someone you can talk to. You’d be surprised. Any kind of random relative. Even if you don’t think they can help in any way, it’s just good to talk because little Dan was just like *timid face* the whole time and *laughs* now I have so many issues. Honestly, they’ll be with me forever.

Quotes from Dan (29/?)

Please listen to him. Too many people look back at their lives realising how much could have changed if they’d dared to open their mouth about what was bothering them. It’s scary as heck but please do not suffer in silence.

Breathe, savor it, own it, I swear to
god if I’m hostin’ I’m makin’ the most of this moment and I am–

from Lin-Manuel Miranda’s opening monologue on Saturday Night Live

I’ll respect your opinion as long as you’re educated and as long as you know what you’re talking about, and your opinion doesn’t infringe on the rights of other human beings. Because if your opinion infringes on the rights of human beings, it doesn’t deserve respect. It just doesn’t. If you don’t respect other people’s existence, how can you possibly expect for someone to respect your opinion?
