"...your perfectly vulnerable beating heart."

"Being tender and open is beautiful. As a woman, I feel continually shhh’ed. Too sensitive. Too mushy. Too wishy washy. Blah blah. Don’t let someone steal your tenderness. Don’t allow the coldness and fear of others to tarnish your perfectly vulnerable beating heart. Nothing is more powerful than allowing yourself to truly be affected by things. Whether it’s a song, a stranger, a mountain, a rain drop, a tea kettle, an article, a sentence, a footstep, feel it all – look around you. All of this is for you. Take it and have gratitude. Give it and feel love." -Zooey Deschanel

  6. I'm sorry to say this but feel it is important to note that this was not a quote by Zooey. You can read about it here http://hellogiggles.com/internet-steals-words-get-back/ of course it doesn't mean it's not a great quote, I myself mistakenly pinned it as by Zooey myself.
