son birkaç gündür, bir iş için özlü söz aramaktan bitap düştüm. müşterimin talep ettiği çok fazla şey var: en az 8-10 tane olacak, bir kadın tarafından söylenmiş olacak, bu kadınlar herkesin tanıdığı bildiği kadınlar olacak, sözler kadınların güçlenmesi hakkında olacak, gaz verecek, kısa ve öz olacak ve hepsi birbirine bağlanarak adeta bir hikaye anlatacak. welcome to my life.
neyse, seçkimi yaptım yolladım. ama bu süreçte elemek zorunda kaldığım birçok çarpıcı demeçle karşılaştım tabi. son dönemde hep alıntılardan gidiyorum, bunları da buraya not alayım dedim. belki sizin de zihninizde / kalbinizde bir ışık yakar.
”Never limit yourself because of others’ limited imagination; never limit others because of your own limited imagination.”
”Sit down and ask yourself, ‘What is the most important thing to me?’ What grosses me out the most? What makes me the most upset — is it healthcare? Is it so many people being hungry in our culture? Is it sexual abuse? Mix that with doing something you love, something you could keep doing forever and ever. For me, it was ending violence against women, and I mixed it with music. And I’ve had a 25-year career. So that’s my advice: Find something you really care about and mix that with something you love doing.”
“We are becoming the men we wanted to marry”
“I have yet to hear a man ask for advice on how to combine marriage and a career.”
“The truth will set you free, but first it will piss you off.”
“Any woman who chooses to behave like a full human being should be warned that the armies of the status quo will treat her as something of a dirty joke . . . She will need her sisterhood.”
“Whatever you’re meant to do, do it now. The conditions are always impossible.”
“As you get older, you don’t get wiser. You get irritable.”
“That is what learning is. You suddenly understand something you’ve understood all your life, but in a new way.”
“Some women choose to follow men, and some women choose to follow their dreams. If you’re wondering which way to go, remember that your career will never wake up and tell you that it doesn’t love you anymore.”
“When you make music or write or create, it’s really your job to have mind-blowing, irresponsible, condomless sex with whatever idea it is you’re writing about at the time.”
“If you dont have any shadows you’re not in the light.”
