11 Quotes From "Milk and Honey" You Didn't Know You Needed To Hear

"Milk and Honey" by Rupi Kaur is a teenage girls favorite book because it's relatable. The book is broken down into four chapters: "the hurting", "the loving", "the breaking", and "the healing". Each chapter consists of small poems that consist of a larger concept: love, heartbreak, abuse, femininity. What I find extremely unique about this book is the minimalistic line drawings on each page. It gives the poem so much more meaning and allows the reader to relate.

This book is full of quotes that I often return to in life. I have bookmarked some of my favorite that everyone could benefit from.

1. "She was a rose in the hands of those who had no intention of keeping her."

2. "The very thought of you has my legs spread apart like an easel with a canvas begging for art."

3. "It's your voice that undresses me."

4. "Instead. Lie me down. Lay me open like a map. And with your finger trace the place you still want to **** out of me. Kiss me like I am the center point of gravity and you are falling into me like my soul is the focal point of yours. And when your mouth is kissing not my mouth but other places. My legs will split apart out of habit. And that's when. I pull you in. Welcome you. Home."

5. "I am a museum full of art but you had your eyes shut."

6. "It wasn't you I was kissing-- don't be mistaken. It was him on my mind. Your lips were just convenient. 

7. "You must enter a relationship with yourself before anyone else."

8. "The next time he points out the hair on your legs is growing back, remind that boy your body is not his home. He is a guest. Warn him to never outstep his welcome again."

9. "Our backs tell stories no books have the spine to carry."

10. "The world gives you so much pain and you are making gold out of it."

11. "At the end of the day all this means nothing. This page, where you're sitting, your degree, your job, the money, nothing even matters. Except love and human connection. Who you loved and how deeply you loved them. How you touched the people around you and how much you gave them."
