❝ if you fail to plan, you plan to fail ❞

our middle school principal barked this Benjamin Franklin quote at us once when i was in grade 5

it sounded like the lamest thing in the world at the time (i was what, like 11 years old?) and we all laughed it off, rolling our eyes and giggling at each other like the foolish youths we were

but right now, in the middle of a pile of readings and work to be done, it is actually one of the wisest pieces of advice i have ever received

❝ I know me. I’m wearing makeup right now, and I’m wearing clothes I’d never normally wear out of respect for the situation. But it’s not me. Aimee (her character) is more like me than the person you see on the red carpet. But there’s something else. This town runs on fear. People don’t talk about that. People are so afraid that if they look a certain way, or talk a certain way, they’re never going to work again. That’s so sad. This is about creating art, and if you’re afraid to do something like not wear makeup, what does that say about our culture? ❞
— Shailene Woodley in response to ‘Most actresses your age want to look their best in every role because this town is obsessed with beauty. How did you know it was the right call to go without makeup in this movie?

❝ I think it’s really difficult to make a good romantic comedy. I’d love to play them; they just don’t tend to come my way at the moment. I’m taking it as a compliment one way or another, but it’s very much an ambition of mine to wear jeans. ❞

Tom Hiddleston

i wanted to take ‘its very much an ambition of mine to wear jeans’ out of context but i like the first sentence too

❝ Impossible is just a big word thrown around by small men who find it easier to live in the world they’ve been given than to explore the power they have to change it. Impossible is not a fact. It’s an opinion. Impossible is not a declaration. It’s a dare. Impossible is potential. Impossible is temporary. Impossible is nothing. ❞

❝ A lot of female journalists are writing about feminism again. Fucking great! Where have you been? You have to, you have a responsibility, portraying women in a positive light with all their flaws. And not going ‘Oh my god you’re 30, are you going to have an awful time?’ No, no! Come on, woman! ❞

❝ Film is a disease. When it infects your bloodstream, it takes over as the number one hormone; it bosses the enzymes; directs the pineal gland; plays Iago to your psyche. As with heroin, the antidote to film is more film. ❞
