“A person of good intelligence and of sensitivity cannot exist in this society very long without having some anger about the inequality - and it’s not just a bleeding-heart, knee-jerk, liberal kind of a thing - it is just a normal human reaction to a nonsensical set of values where we have cinnamon flavoured dental floss and there are people sleeping in the street.”—George Carlin (via rebeccam)
“You will lose someone you can’t live without,and your heart will be badly broken, and the bad news is that you never completely get over the loss of your beloved. But this is also the good news. They live forever in your broken heart that doesn’t seal back up. And you come through. It’s like having a broken leg that never heals perfectly—that still hurts when the weather gets cold, but you learn to dance with the limp.”—Anne Lamott (via myquotelibrary)
“I pity those who dream the probable, the reasonable and the accessible more than those who fantasize about the extraordinary and remote. Those who have grandiose dreams are either lunatics who believe in what they dream and are happy, or they’re mere daydreamers whose reveries are like the soul’s music, lulling them and meaning nothing. But those who dream the possible will, very possibly, suffer real disillusion. I can’t be too disappointed over not having become a Roman emperor, but I can sorely regret never once having spoken to the seamstress who at the street corner turns right at about nine o’clock every morning.”—Fernando Pessoa, from ‘Text 143’, The Book of Disquiet.

Lord, give me grace and dancing feet And the power to impress Lord, give me grace and dancing feet Let me outshine them all Tonight make me unstoppable And I will charm I will slice I will dazzle them with my wit Tonight make me unstoppable And I will charm I will slice I will dazzle I will outshine them all
I’m sorry, but just because a hipster girl is wearing a star wars shirt doesn’t make her a super cool hot laid back nerdy chick you can play Galaga and world of Warcraft with. It makes her a trendy hipster wearing a star wars shirt.
I think girls actually think sometimes that wearing star wars garb actually makes them look smart or something.
Not a huge star wars fan but yeah its getting to be a real nuisance. Its a total mood killer when you meet a girl and say “oh hey I see your into (insert nerd culture reference here)” and you get a “oh no its just a cool shirt”…REALLY
